Philosophy

I believe that learning a new language changes the way we see the world because learning a language is not just drilling on grammar and vocabulary, but  also new and exciting ideas and customs of a new culture.

I stimulate my students’ interest by choosing topics that are more relevant to their lives and the environment in which they function. My way of teaching is positive and encouraging. My students and I work hard to reach their personal goals as well as the goals in the classroom. We do this while having fun in a healthy environment in which care and respect for others is essential. 

I prepare students with appropriate language skills that will help them in real life situations at home, work or in social settings.
