Position: English Language Teacher
Dates: Sep 1992 – Oct 1995
Project: Teaching English as a foreign language to children, teenagers and adults
Background: During my academic year abroad (1992-3), I worked in a secondary school teaching 11 to 21-year-olds English. After graduating in 1994, I continued to teach at various establishments, as well as giving private tuition. I always had my own classes and my lessons were either taken from the syllabus, based on my own material or built around developing oral skills.
