I was born in Spalding, Lincolnshire where I studied at Spalding Grammar School. I went on to gain a BA (Hons) in French and Spanish from the University of Durham. More recently I have gained a BA (Hons) English Language and Literature and an MEd. (Applied Linguistics) from the Open University.
I have been living and working in Madrid for just over twenty years and am currently involved in the design and development of a bilingual programme in a group of private schools here in the city. I am also a speaking examiner for Cambridge English Language Assessment and Team Leader for the level of FCE (Cambridge: First) for my Exam Centre.
I have recently started working as a freelance teacher trainer, and have given talks and workshops at various conferences around Spain, and also Greece.
In October 2012 I began a blog, David's ESOL Blog (davidbradshawenglish.org), and I have been bitten by the blogging bug.
