My life in Spain.

Growing Up Spanish

by Maria Jose Garcia


I was born in Madrid and that's where I've lived all my life. My parents tell me I was a bright little girl who learnt to speak and walk at a very early age.

At the age of thirteen I became obsessed with English and devoted many hours to learn the language.

I studied English at University and since then I've worked as an English teacher, a job I adore.

I got married at twenty-five and have three children. Ever since they were born I've spoken to them in English and they are now bilingual. This has proved to be very useful for them.

I've spent many summers in Great Britain and I love everything British. Bourton on the Water in the Cotswolds is like a home away from home.

I'm fifty-one now and there's nothing I'd love more than being a writer.

This is my life.
