Rosa has been teaching and training for over 30 years. She originally trained as an EFL teacher at International House London where she was employed for several years before moving to Barcelona where she settled.
She worked there first as an EFL teacher and Cambridge examiner, and later, from 1990, as teacher trainer on Cambridge CELTA pre-service courses. Rosa returned to the UK in 2013. In her free time, Rosa is a keen gardener, a crossword fiend and knitter all of which provide a balance to a busy life in the classroom.
