Hi! I’m Norma Linnet, though my real surname is Passarell, an old word in Catalan to design

At Culloden Battlefield, Inverness, Scotland.

ate a kind of bird. Linnet is its English translation. Honestly, sounds much better to my ears!

I’m an English teacher in Vilanova i la Geltrú, near Barcelona.

Although I was born in Girona and was raised in Figueres, I’ve lived in Vilanova i la Geltrú for over 4 years now, where I’ve put down roots. Here is where I have my partner, my family and my job. And, of course, the Mediterranean Sea!

My passions include travelling, reading and writing. My biggest dream is to become a published author one day.

Teacher by accident, learner by choice

I consider myself a lifelong and independent learner. I believe in the fact that we should never stop learning, since everything’s changing so fast! That’s why I’m always trying to take online courses or attend seminars, especially those related to my field of work or humanities.

I also love teaching others what I’ve learned so far in life, and that’s exactly my intention with this blog, to teach YOU what I know.

I hope you’ll feel right at home here. Come back regularly if you enjoy reading my posts and don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter!
