Sue Tyson-Ward (1984 leaver)
Earlier this year my latest CD/audio packs were published by Hodder & Stoughton - 'Get Talking Brazilian Portuguese and Keep talking Brazilian Portuguese'.  Both were published in time for the World Cup, and material from the packs was used by football presenters on an internet sports radio programme in the run-up to the competition.
I am always indebted to Hilary Jones (Spanish teacher) for inspiring me Hispanically during my time at LGGS.
In January I am off to Namibia for 10 days, working with the Namibian Ministry for Education; I shall be training their team of Portuguese educators to produce their own Portuguese exam and question papers under the banner of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).  With Angola as a neighbour, Namibia is looking to an expansion of its Portuguese teaching, and I'm excited and honoured to be asked to be part of setting this up with them.
Life as a Language Consultant is varied and brings something new and challenging every day!
