Oral Agility and Linguistic immersion
|languages||English, Spanish, Turkish|
I have a wide variety of experience as an English teacher, primarily in Spain, but also for a short time in Turkey.
I'm experienced with teenagers and adults over the past 5 years in an academy setting preparing for the Cambridge PET, First and Advanced exams. I taught all the elements of the exam, but focused a lot of my attention on spoken skills, which I feel forms a firm basis for other skills like listening, reading and writing.
I have also been working over the past 5 years on a specialised course for Spanish university students provided by the Spanish government. The focus is on oral agility and linguistic immersion. It forms a similar base to what I have to offer here, and provides any student with the basic tools necessary to develop their speech and confidence in English. As well as covering specific topics, there's a strong focus on functional English.
Experience: 5 years
The classes will be focused on oral agility and conversational skills. There will be practice of specific grammatical structures, and vocabulary development, focused on predetermined topics. The aim is to develop confidence and fluency as well as comprehension skills, and a focus on functional English.
The range of topics will be wide, focusing on both more and less academic themes, depending on the need of the students.
A short list (not complete) of some of the general topics covered (which may extend to 2 or more classes) are:
