English Classes

With 3 years of experience, Annie has had the change to develop her teaching skills in all aspects. She has taught and is familiar with teaching all levels from elementary, pre-intermediate (A1), intermediate (B1), high intermediate (B2), advanced (C1) and proficiency (C2), Cambridge exam preparation (PET, FCE, CAE, CPE), business English and general conversation, along with an introduction to British culture.

In December 2016, Annie qualified as an EFL teacher by completing the CELTA course at CES (Centre of English Studies) in Edinburgh. The CELTA qualification allowed her to enter the field of teaching EFL to learners internationally and the opportunity to help more and more people expand their horizons. The acronym stands for Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults and is validated by the Local Examination Union of the University of Cambridge, which establishes the guidelines and criteria for the centres that offer these courses. The entrance sessions during the course were devoted to methodology, language awareness, phonology and lesson preparation. The course also included opportunities to observe qualified teachers and teaching practices on various levels. Teaching practice classes were judged and observed by peers and qualified (DELTA) teachers.

Upon completion, Annie started working at CES in Edinburgh, Scotland. Teaching English quickly became her new passion. Although students came from all over the world, classes were generally dominated by Italian, Spanish, French and German speakers, aged between 12 and 80.

After a couple of years, Annie started teaching at BLS, a private language institute in Seville, Spain. Here she was given the opportunity to teach English for all end-goals, from young learners to proficiency, from the very basics to university level.

Annie’s methodology totally depends on the individual, their goals and desires. During your first meeting, you will get to know Annie, discuss your aims and make a learning plan.You will be asked to complete a placement test to figure what you already know and find out what you can improve.

Yoga and English

Through the guided practises, Annie soon discovered that the technique used to teaching yoga is dissimilar to the approach of teaching English, but nevertheless a great combination. Little by little, Annie made way to a new path; developing her own program in which she teaches themed combination classes. Each session unites the aspects of a physical yoga practise, followed by an English conversation class.

During your combination class, you will among others become acquainted with;

Yoga and English – The Body (body-parts, body-movement, body-functioning, breathing)

Annie ha sido mi profesora de Inglés conversacional vía Skype por ya casi 5 meses, al principio estaba yo algo escéptico sobre tener clases a través de una videollamada, pensé que sería algo aburrido estar frente a la computadora, pero Annie hace que cada minuto sea realmente increíble. Después de este tiempo he conseguido confianza al hablar y ahora puedo comunicarme bastante bien. Ella además de inglés, también habla español (y algunos otros idiomas más), por lo que conoce las posibles complicaciones que un hispanohablante puede encontrar al querer aprender inglés. No dudes en intentarlo, te llevarás una muy linda sorpresa.

Annie es una profesora organizada, dinámica y divertida que siempre pone en primer lugar las necesidades lingüísticas de sus alumnos. Como es políglota, tiene una clara pasión por los idiomas. Sus numerosos viajes alrededor del mundo la han llevado a desarrollar fuertes habilidades sociales que utiliza para fomentar relaciones genuinas en el aula. Como resultado de su personalidad burbujeante y de su gran sentido de la empatía, sus alumnos van desde niños hasta adolescentes y adultos. Enseñar junto a Annie en un instituto de idiomas en Edimburgo, Escocia, me permitió admirar la forma en que incorpora el trabajo en grupo, la perforación coral y los juegos centrados en los estudiantes que son ricos en vocabulario. Da prioridad al progreso de los estudiantes y se asegura de hacer todo lo posible para que sus alumnos se sientan cómodos. ¡Annie prospera en la profesión docente y definitivamente la considero una Superprof!
