Vishal, our Spanish professor, hails from the Canary Islands. He loves Real Madrid, Food and his Family (necessarily in that order). What with Spanish being his native tongue, Vishal brings a wealth of local knowledge, typical Spanish humor and a whole load of football trivia to his classes.(In case you are wondering who he is yelling at in the photograph, be assured it is not at his students. It’s just him doing a Mourinho impression in an empty Bernabeu)
