“When I was learning English in the UK, my love for teaching language has grown while witnessing how learning a second language can bring a positive and enduring impact on life. It is there to enhance the culture, understanding the values, norms and manners of others. People learn who they really are through the learning process and find out how others communicate and live.
Teaching is a challenging career, nothing but rewarding. It requires the best of the teacher but also the aim of learning has to be intentional for the student. There is where the magic and the communication happens, teacher and student are sharing knowledge and both are learning about themselves and their cultures. Could any job be more exciting?”
