About
Katherine-S


Welcome! I offer you a pleasant room in a nice area. You will enjoy learning with an experienced and friendly teacher. I live in Dublin which has many attractions at short distance. I can teach you different effective ways to learn English in a short time. My place is near the airport, shopping malls, a swimming pool and local communities that offer several activities. I have a very international group of friends and we all communicate in English so you will be exposed to different accents. I have a son and a daughter. My son lives with me and he speaks English, Japanese and French. My daughter has her own apartment and she speaks English and French. They are both in college. I like films and driving to the beach.
