My background & experienceI have a Master's degree in Applied linguistics and a Bachelor's in English Philology. Having had 5 years' experience in teaching and having worked with both absolute beginners and people with a high level of knowledge, I have gained a better understanding of what methodologies or teaching techniques to choose to get the best out of a lesson by improving the learners' speaking, listening, vocabulary, grammar and other language skills. I find that the combination of traditional and modern techniques is the key to reaching the goal of language learning! My classes include a variety of engaging and fun speaking activities combined with grammar/vocabulary drills and exercises. I believe one can never forget what they do with pleasure, so I make sure my classes are always enjoyable, besides being informative and productive!
My classes and teaching styleIn my classes I combine the traditional teaching methods (grammar-based) with modern techniques (more attention to speaking), as one is insufficient without the other. I also find it very important to make the lesson interesting and enjoyable. I often organize debates, discussions and various games to make the lesson more interesting, fun and at the same time effective by boosting my students' speaking skills and comprehension.
