Sound English was founded in 2009 by Jonathan Kinson in Torrelavega. Jonathan Kinson who is originally from Warwick studied literature in Liverpool John Moores University and then completed a Trinity TESOL certificate at Coventry Technical College. He has worked at various language schools in Spain teaching mainly General and business English. He has also taught Academic English at The University of Warwick, The University of Kingston, The University of St Andrews and the University of Exeter. He completed his Trinity Diploma in 2003 and is currently completing his Masters in TESOL at Sheffiled Hallam University. He is very interested in learner autonomy, bilingual education and the use of literature in language teaching. After initially falling into the teaching profession he has developed a passion for teaching and researching about teaching.

Our academy is located in Torrelavega, in the street Jesus Cancio 2.

Sound English uses a mixture of teaching methodologies. There is still no definitive teaching technology but it seems that the most appropriate approach would be a balance between learning and doing. Students need to be aware of certain structural complexities but also have a unthreatening environment in which to practice language.
