    Teaching English as a Foreign Language and English for Specific Purposes

    ESL is a supplementary, comprehensive English language program for students and adults trying to learn the English language. This program introduces you the English language. I've designed it specifically to develop my leaners' ability for spoken and written English.

    The program consists of grammar, vocabulary, productive skills (speaking and writing ), receptive skills (listening and reading ), pronunciation and English for Specific Purposes.

    I believe that all students are unique and have something special that they can bring to their own education. I will assist my students to express themselves and accept themselves for who they are, as well embrace the differences of others.

    Every learning environment has its own unique community; my role as the teacher will be to assist each child in developing their own potential and learning styles. I will present a curriculum that will incorporate each different learning style, as well as make the content relevant to the students' lives. I will incorporate hands-on learning, cooperative learning, projects, themes, and individual work that engage and activate students learning.

    English: pronunciation (British or American) or conversation
    I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.
