Do you have any specific language learning tips?

Language Learning Tips: find a song you like in the foreign language and translate the lyrics to English and keep listening and singing along, following the words (don’t choose an instrumental!).
Another tip: put sticky notes up around the house with words on – learn the vocabulary by heart.

What was your best teaching experience?

My best teaching experience: I had a deaf student. Despite the challenges I taught her to speak Turkish out loud quite clearly. She was so motivated, she used to write a diary for homework. She was my Language Hero.

Looking forward to seeing you on my course!
