Creating a meaningful learning experience encompassing both cultural and language exchange.
My name is Deanna from Toronto, Canada. I am currently a marketing coordinator for an entrepreneurial networking events company in Toronto and I also run my own online vintage clothing shop for women.
I was previously an English language instructor in Seoul for 3 years. I taught at an English learning institute named Language Cube, where I taught adults mainly 1-1 with group classes conducted once a week.
I love teaching, meeting new people and engaging in cultural exchange. I am familiar with teaching English at many different levels and welcome any type of learner to work with me.
Enough about me! ~ I look forward to meeting and teaching all future learners on the SkimaTalk site!
Reviewing standard business interactions using case studies and pre-set dialogues. The goal is to familiarize learners with the common terminology and surrounding cultural factors at play, to then communicate with confidence.
Creating two-way conversations through a given script, going over a typical conversation during a particular event- checking into a hotel, returning a product at customer service etc. Providing a script for both myself and the learner to read from. The scripts' difficulty level will range based on the english proficiency level at hand.
Listening to clips from TV shows and movies where slang terms are used. Following the video clips, discussing with the learner when these phrases are commonly used and sharing with the learner how to say other phrases with similar meanings.
