Teaching English to ESL students in Brisbane would utilise my Professional Dip

Methodology

Mature teacher with a fun attitude to learning - using movement and music to encourage ESL students to voluntarily participate in lessons. The lesson will always start with a warmer exercise which may be a role play, or game geared to the students' level of experience.
There will always be a structured focus followed by repetition learning and the lesson will conclude with a refresher.

Background

I have had two long stays in Vietnam teaching English at International and Private schools in both the south and the north. The age groups ranged from kindergarten to adult and the results varied accordingly. I actively encouraged my students to speak English to a Native English speaker, with varying degrees of success.
