Mr Richard Thynne


Spanish and French Teacher

BA(Hons) French - University of Southampton

MA(Hons) International Relations - University of Leeds

PGCE (University of Manchester)

Learning a foreign language is not just a useful life skill, but is a key to unlocking new cultures and ways of thinking. I always make sure my lessons are full of links to the country's history, geography or culture in order to ignite students' interests. Aside from speaking French and Spanish, I am also looking forward to improving my own Russian!

In my spare time, I enjoy watching and playing cricket, playing guitar, travelling in far-flung places and following the travails of my football team, Exeter City.
