- Isabel Quesada
- I am a secondary teacher of English in Southern Spain. I studied MFL in Jaén and I got a DPSI certificate in Law in England. I started my teaching career in Newcastle back in 2000, where I lived for 3 years. Once I returned home, I taught in a public school and got ready to sit the "oposiciones" exam, which I passed!!! Currently, I am teaching in Jaén, which has become my definite residence in Spain since 2004.

Here is a short list: Dar la lata = to give the can / tin, Dar la vara= to give the rod, Dar la murga= to give the street band, Dar la tabarra= to give the badgering, Dar el coñazo(fam!) = to be a real pain (only use this expression with people you are familiar with)
