Staff Profile: Mr. A. Lopes

Mr. A. Lopes

Head of Modern Foreign Languages & Spanish Teacher

Mr. Lopes was the Head of Modern Languages teaching Spanish and German at the University Technical College Plymouth in Devon, UK. Previously he taught at a British School in Bangkok in Thailand and in Nottingham, UK for 4 years teaching Spanish, German and French focusing on Secondary teaching. He has wide experience in teaching IGCSE, A Levels and the IB Diploma. Alex has an MA in Modern Foreign Languages (including Hispanic Literature and Germanic Studies). 

I come originally from Lisbon in Portugal/Vigo-Galicia in Spain, and Sweden but I grew up in Hamburg -Germany, and England where I spent most of my student and professional life. I speak 6 languages fluently: English, Portuguese, Spanish, German, French, Italian and also some Dutch. I’ve also been learning Mandarin and Japanese and I hope to become fluent in these languages one day.

 

I consider myself to be innovative and enthusiastic about all aspects of language teaching/learning. I have a genuine passion for language learning which compliments my zeal for travel, enabling me to keep my lessons fresh, relevant and highly topical.

 

My main hobbies are mountain-biking when in Europe,  trekking, hiking, and diving. I also love cooking Italian food, reading fantasy and science-fiction books, meditation and above all learning new languages, as well as writing about my travels.
