My background is in teaching ESOL/EFL on university study programmes, in further education, local community groups and 1-1 tutoring. I studied Chinese at university so I fully appreciate the difficulties of language learning and I am interested in the research and practice of second language acquisition.
My role as ESOL Team Leader is very varied and rewarding. I support the teachers to be the very best practitioners they can, develop course content that is relevant and useful to our students and support the day to day running of the Adult Learning centre. I’m still happiest in the classroom and am currently teaching our beginner adult ESOL class where I’m helping those with no educational background learn English.
I’m delighted to contribute to making EMBS a community that gives our students the skills, qualifications, sense of belonging and confidence they need to thrive.
