I’ve been teaching English as a Foreign Language since I gained my CELTA in April 2011.
I’ve taught adults and YLs in private language centres in Vietnam and the Balkans as well as summer schools in the UK and Italy. Currently that’s over 3500 hours in the classroom, through which I’d say my main specialisms and interests are Young Learners (YL) (particularly primary and secondary) and Academic English (AE or EAP).
This blog is here for reflecting and sharing as I continue shaping my teaching. This is a never-ending quest and includes both what works and what doesn’t. But the journey’s where the fun is, so they say.
In particular, this blog will cover my experience going through the IH CAM online and later a Diploma level TEFL qualification, be that the Trinity Diploma or the Delta.
I’ve always been an active participant of learning and sharing in the various teachers’ rooms I’ve worked in, and time has come to extend this online too.
I’m also a workshop addict and have recently started leading workshops myself (one each in 2015 and 2016, and a few already in 2017).
Elisabeth, not just a teacher
I hike, I dance, I like shoes and I drink a lot of tea.
And I’ve been into languages for as long as I can remember. I spent over 3 years in Vietnam and have a now dormant blog with over 70 articles and tips for learning Vietnamese. Being a language learner undoubtedly influences my teaching, and vice versa.
I check twitter or you can send an email to: hello at moreteamoreteaching dot com. Adding and subtracting the appropriate punctuation, of course.
