Need some advice and was hoping I could get it here.
I'm a qualified French teacher. I took some time out of teaching to be with the kids and since then have done some supply work and now am working as a TA.
I'm ready to go back but they're not ready for me
I've decided it's because I don't have a second language but it may well be that my last permanent job was 9 years ago or that I last taught French 4 years ago or as my line manager asked yesterday, "Have you seen your reference?"
or that ... ok, there is a slight possibility that my application was, how shall I put it, rubbish!
Anyway, I want to learn Spanish and fast. I have the textbook Suenos (couldn't do accent) and associated materials and am helping a friend's DD with the basics in Spanish and study skills which helps me too, but I need a qualification.
All advice gratefully received.
Edited post as I have just noticed one of the forum rules.
