After seven years teaching Spanish in Edinburgh, five of them running SALT, the moment of moving to a different career has arrived. The Spring term (April to the end of June) will be my last one teaching Spanish. But don’t worry, my decision doesn’t affect to SALT, as Jorge will take full ownership of the business.
I’d like to close this post saying thank you to all the people who helped me over the last five years of my life, a time that I’ll always remember as enormously satisfying. Apart from my loved ones and my life partner, there’re some people that I feel obliged to mention – and, at the same time, this can be a good practise for my future Oscar speech.
First of all, thank you to all the students who taught me something. Teaching is two way and, while I explained grammar points, students told me about restaurants, books, films, trips and English expressions that, otherwise, I’d never have learnt. I also want to say thank you to all the teachers who worked with us, especially some of them who now I include among my friends. And the last person who I want to express my gratitude is Jorge, my business partner over the last five years and an excellent friend. Thank you for all these years, for what you taught me, for the fun times and for the understanding when we talked about my future. I know that SALT will be in the best hands of the world with Jorge.
