Su di me

Hello! My name is Laura Baker and I am an English teacher from the United States.

A little about me:

-I began teaching English in 2008 in Taipei, Taiwan.

-I have more than a decade (10 years) of experience teaching adult conversation classes, Business English.

-I love to travel and have lived more than nine years abroad in France, Germany, Taiwan and Brazil.

-I am passionate about learning languages. In my free time, I study Mandarin Chinese, French, Portuguese, German and American Sign Language.

What is class like?

-I believe class needs to be student-centered and fun. That means class is built around your goals, needs and interests.

-I want you to feel engaged and comfortable in class so that you can practice with confidence. Don't worry about making mistakes! They are proof that you are learning something new.

-According to your goals and needs, class will focus on one or a mix of the following skills: grammar, pronunciation and intonation, vocabulary, spoken fluency, reading, writing and listening.

-Class activities will include a mix of exercises, games, questions, discussions, role-playing activities, listening exercises, pronunciation practices, short presentations, and more...the possibilities are endless!

If you have any questions about class, please let me know. Thanks for reading my profile, and I look forward to meeting you online soon!
