Hi, my name is Huyen, Vietnamese. I'm currently working as a curriculum developer and language instructor. My job involves creating materials for study, training modules, teaching aids,...in order to improve students' engagement and performance. In short, I look at what's educationally ugly and beautify it. Also, having taught students from many countries around the world... and being a constant language learner myself, I understand what difficulties learners usually have to face.
I am passionate about languages and different cultures in the world. After graduated from university, I spent sometime travelling around Europe and teach Vietnamese to British, Spanish and German people. For now, I can speak 5 languages (Vietnamese, English, Spanish, Catalan and German) and I am studying the 6th one.
