Apart from translating and writing, I also teach with style and enthusiasm.

Teaching

In 1992 I taught translation for the first time on the postgraduate course in English and Spanish Translation at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica. It was an memorable experience. I also taught on the undergraduate course in Spanish Language and Literature.
