John Michael Ferra

English teacher

Hello, my name is John Ferrà and I am really pleased to be teaching English at Idiomes Llucmajor.
As my surname indicates, I am half British and half Spanish as my father is from Spain. Before moving to Mallorca, I lived in London and Cambridge and studied European History at Warwick University.
I arrived in Mallorca three years ago and have been working for British universities for over twenty-five years having worked for Cambridge University, the London School of Economics (LSE) and the University of London. My work has mainly focused in delivering British education internationally and in this endeavour I have worked previously with the British Council and Cambridge Assessment in determining students proficiency in English and have previously worked as an IELTS examiner.
My style is inclusive, open and friendly – to encourage students to adopt a pro active approach and take responsibility for their learning. My hobbies include theatre, cooking, walking, enjoying the wonderful Mallorcan countryside and beaches and travelling.
