A message from English teacher Sara Elizabeth:

Hello! I am from Scotland in the United Kingdom. I love helping people to enjoy using English. Let's have fun while learning! It's very important to keep your motivation to speak English, and I can help you stay motivated and keep on getting better.

I have over 10 years of experience, working with English learners of all ages.
I speak Japanese fluently, and also French and Spanish. I understand what it is like to learn a new language!

My qualifications:
I have a Trinity Certificate (with Distinction) in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
I also have an Advanced TEFL Certificate in Teaching Young Learners
I graduated with BA (Honours) in International Business and Languages, from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. I spent one year of my degree studying at the Ecole Superieure de Commerce at Grenoble, France. I also have an undergraduate certificate from the University of Oxford (in Engineering and Computing Science).
