Hello, I’m Emily and I’m from Bristol in the west of England. I started Orchid English in 2012 in order to provide excellent English classes in London at a reasonable price. It’s been a great experience. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some wonderful students and teachers and learned a lot.
A bit about my background: I graduated from University College London with a degree in linguistics. Then I completed my Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) in Budapest.
Living in Paris I trained professionals in several large French companies. Before this I taught business and general English to adults in Tokyo, and worked for an international language school in Naples.
In the past I studied French and Japanese, and my current challenge is learning Spanish. I feel that it is very useful for language trainers to learn other languages. This is so the trainers are aware of the challenges faced when learning another language, different learning styles and how it feels to be on the other side of the desk.
