Hi, English learner!
Hi, I'm Marie. I'm a native Brit.
I've been inspiring non-natives to use English since 2007. I'm not like other teachers who go on about grammar and blaa blaa blaa. BORING! That's why I call myself a coach. There are a lot of ways you can learn English. You can learn it freely on the internet. A coach will take you a step further. A coach shows you how to use English.
I strongly believe the best way to learn any language is by using it. Making lots mistakes comes as standard. Then you can feel great about making real progress.
By day, I teach English to Chinese children on the internet. I'm so lucky to have found a job that I love doing.
Obviously, I'm learning French. Learning a second language has helped me become a better teacher too. I know it's no easy task. I learn French by mixing it with something I enjoy. So, I learn French while cycling and walking with friends. I read French lifestyle blogs. I learn so much more by reading the things French speakers are reading. It's more interesting and more up to date than textbooks.
These methods have made a big difference to my experience of learning another language.
It's easy to overlook the FREE things available to us. Reading, listening and thinking. The first two - reading and listening - you can easily do on the internet. The third one - thinking - I will talk about in the future sometime. You can download your FREE copy of "How To Think In English" here.
Never underestimate what you can learn from yourself.
Anyway, are you bored yet? I am, let's do this ;)
