Since taking a course to teach English as a foreign language 20 years ago, I’ve taught students with very different levels and nationalities, both in the UK and abroad.
Unlike many English speakers, I speak slowly and clearly. I love discussing English grammar, and I surprise my family when I reach grammar books like novels!
Due to different linguistic backgrounds, English lessons often work best as 1-1 lessons. But I also currently teach English to groups of Peruvian naval officers, here with the navy and their families, and to prestigious professors at a Berlin university.
Thanks to my network, if I cannot fit in a new English student, I can recommend alternative, larger classes.
Fun fact: I met my husband at a charity event, run by a colleague at an English Language school, as we’d both sponsored him to swim the English Channel for Zimbabwe Rural Schools Development Programme. 12 years later, I’m still in his phone as “Adrienne ZRSDP”!
