With 12 years of teaching English all around the world, the importance of learning authentic vocabulary is paramount, and not always possible from a typical course book. Native speakers use expressions and uncommon terminology to communicate their ideas and this can often be very different to what we learn in the classroom.
Idioms and phrasal verbs are 2 ESSENTIAL elements to speak like a native. The more you use them, the more natural your speech will become and the better communicator you will be.
They help you integrate culturally, create relationships, increase your confidence and improve your language abilities.

CELTA + CELTYL Teaching qualifications
I have specialised in teaching English as a second language for over 12 years. I've worked for some of the industry leaders and lectured at universities around the world, trained in the "communicative approach".
I am also a language learner and currently speak 4 European languages, so I like to think like a learner when I prepare my classes.
I currently manage my own language school, British Community, teaching students and teachers on and offline.
Teaching (and learning) is my passion, whether it be languages or other subjects, I enjoy meeting new people and learning together.
