Experience and Hobbies:
I have been interested in foreign languages for as long as I can remember. I have mastered conversational French and Arabic and am able to communicate in several others. During my time at University I and 5 other friends started an extracurricular organization specifically geared toward facilitating intercultural/international experiences and friendships called International Connection. The success of this experience led me to develop a strong interest in the cultures of East Asia with which, prior to International Connection, I had very little experience. I am very happy to have had the opportunity to live and work in China as it has been incredibly enriching to me both linguistically and culturally.
Teaching at Aston:
I joined Aston English in 2016 as a Foreign Teacher with Aston Hanzhong. I consider this to have been the most enriching experience of my life. I have met and worked with wonderful people who I will certainly remember for the rest of my life; I have eaten and come to love foods that I might never have tried in any other context; a
nd I have, through hands-on experience, gained skills that allow me to be an effective teacher of English. Aston, as an organization, has been incredibly helpful throughout this past year with its strong network of friendly teachers and its cadre of dedicated management staff. According to what I’ve seen I only expect further success for Aston in the future。
