Kara did her CELTA 10 years ago with the intention of working abroad for a year and has never looked back. She has been in the industry, working in the UK and Spain as a teacher and teacher trainer, ever since. She loves language and loves enthusing new teachers with that love so they can in turn pass it on to their students.
Florence became an English teacher after a successful career in finance. She made teaching Cambridge exams her specialism, did the DELTA and finally became a teacher trainer. Languages are her first love -initially qualifying as an interpreter- she encourages students’ learning by making lessons fun and her enthusiasm and dedication to teaching has been her driving force to motivate students and trainees alike.
