Steve's interest in the Spanish language began back in 1987 when he went to work in Spain as a holiday rep. His journey began in Menorca and ended in Benidorm in 1997. During the ten years working overseas in various Spanish resorts, Steve developed a love for Spain, its culture and its language and that passion continues to this day, over 30 years later.

Steve perfected his conversational and grammatical understanding of Spanish and is 100% self taught.

Steve believes that a major benefit to his overall comprehension of Spanish was the fact that he lived in Spain and was able to listen and observe the way the Spanish spoke. It was almost like an ongoing lesson for him and he picked up all the Spanish colloquialisms and ended up with a fairly decent Spanish accent.

During the winter of 1991/2 Steve took some time off to work in a ski resort in Andorra and took a job singing and playing guitar in a restaurant, he did some ski instructing for beginners and he also did some Spanish teaching to some of the British resort staff.

Steve finished his overseas career in 1997 and subsequently returned to the UK, but continued to visit Spain whenever he could and take holidays there in order to try and maintain a high level of Spanish. After all that work getting fluent in the language, it would have been a shame to lose it.

It has always been a dream of Steve's to teach Spanish, for two reasons:
1) The satisfaction from being able to pass on his knowledge to others and see them progress, as he remembers what it was like for him at the early stages.
2) It gives him the opportunity to keep speaking a language he loves.

Being a Spanish Teacher at Language for Fun, is the perfect opportunity for Steve to continue his journey through Spain, its culture and its language and he very much hopes you can join him.
