I have created lessons that help tackle a few of the cultural barriers that many face when speaking English. There are many ways to answer a simple, "Hi, how are you?", and I include all of the answers and more in my lessons.
I'm currently a cultural advisor at an English language institute and would be happy to share my knowledge with you. Whether you plan to travel to an English speaking country or you are just interested in learning about culture and lifestyle in English language countries, I can help create lesson plans to teach you about life in the English speaking world.
I envisage being with a student who loves a particular movie. They may, for example, understand the majority of it but with dialect and colloquialisms something may be lost in translation. It would be good to watch that movie together or parts thereof and break things down and explain certain bits the missed or didn't understand.
I have 47 years experience of living and working in English and Irish culture. I lived in England for 13 years then moved to Ireland and have lived in Ireland for 35 years and I spend a lot of time in both countries. So I have a good understanding of how both lifestyles and cultures work.
