Anna Ba

Welcome to the UK! My name is Anna and I live with my 2 children, Zak and Sophia in Bicester, near Oxford. We have 3 lovely cats. I am a doctor specialising in Anaesthesia, Intensive Care and Paediatric Intensive Care and I work at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London part time. I spent a summer in Spain many years ago to learn Spanish so I understand the process students will be going through when learning English.
