Marion B

I am a teacher of English as a Foreign Language.  I am an enthusiastic, creative and positive teacher and I enjoy encouraging students to learn and develop their language. I like to include lots of variety in lessons which combine the four skills of speaking and listening as well as some consolidation with reading and writing. I tailor the lessons to the student’s needs. I also enjoy planning trips and showing students places of interest.
