I am a Chilean citizen by birth and a British national due to my dual nationality status. I have lived most of my life in Chile, where I hold a teaching certificate and a Master’s degree in Education. I am now retired from active work and spend most of my time writing. I do love to write!
My second love is teaching. I'm a Math and Physics teacher but at the moment I'm teaching English as a second language to Spanish speaking adults and young adults. I love that too!
A short and enjoyable study of 120 English words and their pair companions in the Spanish language. These pairs are called cognates. The vocabulary level corresponds to graduate studies. Cognate awareness is a great language bridge for both Spanish and English speakers.
At the start of World War One, the coasts of Chile and Argentina witnessed three Naval Battles: the Battle of Coronel and the Battle of the Falkland Islands, both in 1914, and the Battle of Mas a Tierra soon after. Close to the first centenary, they are the topic of this book. It includes maps, photos, comments from the Chilean (British) author and valuable unknown vintage photos.
