I completed a BA (Ed) at the University of Reading in the UK in Educational Studies that also gave me qualified teacher status in the UK.
I worked as a school teacher in the UK for several years, and I also taught at an international school in Bangkok, Thailand for two years.
My students at the international school came from many different countries, so the type of English teaching I taught was immersive teaching of English, and then of course the usual standard English language learning, including phonics, speaking, listening, reading and writing.
