Mrs Maria Wimpory, DASE, MA, FHEA
My teaching career started in Nassau, Bahamas where I taught at St Andrew's School and also at the Salvation Army School for the Blind where I taught general primary school subjects through the medium of Braille and Abacus.
After obtaining a DASE PgD in Linguistics I taught Spanish at Harrogate College; College of Ripon and York St John (now York St John University); University of Teesside and British Steel Corporation.
I have worked for private clients and solicitors' firms translating contracts, commercial letters, certificates and diplomas and a variety of documents including marriage certificates, adoption papers (UK and foreign), custody cases and special reports.
Other consultancy activities include technical editing for Hodder & Stoughton and syllabus and assessment development for the Institute of Linguists.
Since 1994 I have taught Spanish (BA (Hons) European Studies; Language Centre; Centre for Foreign Language Study) - Durham University.
I hold a University of York research MA in Applied Educational Studies focussing on the teaching and learning of grammar. My abiding interest is the teaching and learning of grammar via a judicious combination of the communicative and structuralist approaches.
