Hi, my name is Ross Romeo and I'm a Spanish teacher based in Toronto, Canada. I'm originally from Saragossa, Spain, where I grew up in a bilingual home, with a Spanish father and a British mother. I love languages and everything to do with them and, as well as teaching, I'm also a professional English-Spanish, Spanish-English translator.
