I graduated in Germany with a Master's in Education and have been working in the teaching/training/ESL/EFL industry for about a decade already. I have been teaching and training in Asia for the past seven years and have additionally been working in product development for several years now. I have been specialising in Cross-Cultural and Business English Training for ESL/EFL students and have been training adults the past couple of years. I am now in the process of establishing my own website to offer Cross-Cultural and Business English Training resources for ESL/EFL students. My lessons include vocabulary, audio, reading comprehension, videos, discussion questions, role-plays and homework, thus providing a richer learning experience and relating to real-life situations. Please come visit me on www.crossculturecafe.com
I enjoyed having the chance to try out different teaching styles due to living in different countries; some were more traditional (e.g. in China) and others involved e-learning, TPR, and more student-centered teaching styles. I now work from home and use online methods of training.
Yet to be added
I studied in Germany and graduated with a Master's in Education. Before leaving for Asia, I decided to get another TEFL certificate and several specialised TEFL trainings.
I have been travelling all my life and was raised in the UK and Germany. I started out teaching in both these countries, but decided to leave my "comfort zone" and work in and travel to Turkey and India for several months. Upon returning back to the West, reverse-culture shock kicked in and I left for Asia once again - supposedly just for six months... Loving the life of teaching and training in China and Taiwan and living the dream of travelling all over Asia, I'm still "out here" seven years later and currently based in the Philippines with my Filipino husband and two handsome boys "made in China"! We speak three languages in the house and sometimes a fourth (Chinese) if my hubby and I don't want others to understand us! Our everyday life is cross-cultural and a communication criss-cross in every way! I now work from home as a trainer and develop training materials for corporate training companies based in Asia. The materials I develop range from Business English, Soft Skill to Cross-Cultural Training all catered to ESL/EFL learners.
