My English teaching experience

I'm Niel and I'm from South Africa. I've been teaching over a year, firstly in South Africa, and now in Taiwan. I have training in Drama and directing, so I bring a very creative flavour and enthusiasm to my teaching. I love interacting with people, getting to know them and their culture and background, so teaching really fulfills those desires.

Teaching English at Compass

Compass is an amazing place to learn and teach English; the lessons are short and interesting. The teachers here are creative and amazing. The classes are small so it's easy to focus and learn. It's one of the best places I've taught at so far!

Learning tips to ESL learners

Read as much as you can, especially with the Mandarin alongside. Listen to English music and learn the English words. Try to speak as much and immerse yourself...and don't be shy!

我是來自南非的Niel,我曾經在南非有教學經驗,而現在來到台灣。我接受過戲劇與導演的訓練,所以我把非常有創意的想法和我的熱情帶到教學上面。我喜歡與人互動,去了解別人的文化與背景,這都可以在教學上找到的。

康培士是一個很棒的學習英語的地方,課堂短而有趣。這裡的老師都很棒很有創意的,小班制教學讓學生容易集中、幫助學習,這是我教書到現在為止最好的地方。

給學員的學習建議:

盡可能閱讀多點,聽多些英文歌曲去學習英文字彙。盡量多講一點英文,千萬不要害羞!
