Live as if you were to die tomorrow.
Learn as if you were to live forever
- Mahatma Gandhi
I have spent most of the day putting in a comma and the rest of the day taking it out
- Oscar Wilde
I didn‘t choose teaching. Teaching chose me. I really didn‘t want to do it because it frightened the hell out of me. But, I needed the money. So I did it.
And in time I discovered it wasn‘t all that terrible. In fact I realised, after a year or two, I was quite good at it.
Nowadays I still teach to earn money. But I also teach because I love doing it.
The ultimate aim is simple:
To allow people to become more comfortable when using a foreign language. I know what that‘s like because I‘ve learned a few of them. So I‘m on your side and together we can seize the day!
