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!
