Hi, my name is Susie Kay. A native of the United Kingdom, I was born and raised in the Midlands of England. Since leaving the U.K. my home has been mainly in Spain, although I have lived and worked in several other countries. English is my native language and I also speak both Spanish and French. As a qualified EFL teacher, (English as a Foreign Language) with several years experience, I am familiar with both the conventional method and the direct method of teaching. I am now semi-retired and my time is dedicated to giving private tuition, and to authoring simple, easy to use lessons.
Learn English Now with Kaycontinental is a unique course made up of 60 easy to understand grammar and vocabulary lessons, given in question and answer format. The teacher simply reads out each word or phrase clearly and distinctly, and the student learns by listening and repeating, whilst his/her pronunciation is monitored and corrected. The student should then practice / memorize what s/he has learned by doing the simple exercises at the end of each lesson.
