  10. 10. R is for Relationships I find that I often form very close relationships with students. I recognize students as individuals & as people, not simply empty vessels to be filled with knowledge.
  11. 11. O is for Observation Many of the ideas I have had regarding learning preferences come from observing my students & seeing how they approach tasks in completely different ways, even if the outcome is the same.
  12. 12. S is for Students I enjoy my time with them! Together we work towards the outcome they need.
  13. 13. E is for encouragement Learning a language is such an emotional task, when we stumble to say or write something, it is not the same as being a beginner in another field. We need to make sure that our students understand that this is a process and they won’t be judged for their mistakes
  14. 14. N is for NLP Became interested in Neuro-Linguistic Programming in the late 1980’s. Learned useful techniques such as the goal-setting exercise, the creativity strategy, how to establish and maintain rapport and precise use of language to clarify communication with others.
  15. 15. B is for Business English I have been teaching corporate clients in the field of banking & finance for many years. I have also published several books on the topic, two of which were photocopiable business English games.
  16. 16. E is for Entertainment Important both in the classroom and in my private life. I enjoy ‘entertaining’ students with relevant anecdotes or stories I go to the opera, ballet performances and concerts regularly.
  17. 17. R is for Rapport Establishing a feeling of mutual trust and understanding is vital in all the work I do.
  18. 18. G is for Graz My home since 1981 There are several universities, an opera house as well as concert halls, restaurants, parks and a medieval inner city. It is a wonderful place to live as getting around is easy and there is enough on offer to suit every taste.
