Su di me

Hi, my name is Ben. I have been living and working overseas most of my adult life. After completing my degree in International Relations & Politics and after taking a TEFL Course I moved to China in 2003 and taught English as a foreign language there in a number of capacities, both in a college / university setting and for people looking to improve their business english. I believe that students should feel comfortable to make mistakes and and learn from those - it's important to focus on effective communication, not always grammatical perfection. Whatever it is you'd like to achieve I'm looking forward to working with you to get there!
