Jamie - Teacher

Mat Wright

Meet Jamie. He's a teacher and he works in Greater Lisbon.


Describe the town where you were born in 10 words or fewer. 

Watford is unrefined, architecturally non-descript and multicultural.

What's your favourite word in Portuguese?

Cajadada. Just like how it sounds (but not how it feels…)

Which countries have you lived in? 

Apart from the UK, I’ve lived in Italy, Belgium, Spain and Portugal (twice).

What would you un-invent if you could?

Not sure, but I resent that I need a mobile phone.

What bacalhau dish do you like most?

Tough one, but I’d probably go for Bacalhau à Gomes de Sá.

What super-power would you like to have?

Having done a quick bit of research, I’ll go for Chi. 

What’s the best thing about your job?

Meeting interesting people and developing language through sharing ideas, views and experiences.

Coffee or tea?

Coffee when I’m in Portugal and tea when I’m in the UK.
