Hi my name is Iwan. I have been a TEFL teacher for 9 years, and have been interested in communication since long before then.After traveling and teaching in various countries Bangladesh, France, Germany, Poland and Japan I moved back to Wales in 2014 and have been teaching at WE Bridge ever since. Being a teacher of English is a unique profession. Meeting and supporting people from so many different countries in their 'journey' to learn English has its rewards.As well as the 'formal' aspects of language teaching - grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation I'm particularly interested in utilising role-play, drama, music and games and humour as a way of facilitating the understanding of English.A student achieving their own specific language goals is great to behold as is a happy and humorous class.
In my own time I love reading and watching stupid comedy films. I love music, from rock to classical and used to attend improvised comedy workshops while living in London.I look forward to meeting you soon!
