ALL ABOUT ALICE
What do you do?
I am an English teacher with a difference. I use drama and theater games to help people develop not only their English, but also their listening, communication, co-operation and creative skills. These are all extremely valuable skill sets that can change our lives in a huge way.
Where did your love for teaching come from?
As a kid I was taught that some people have 'it' , and some people don't have 'it'. That basically some people have a natural talent for something and the rest of us just don't have a chance. As I grew older I realized that this is a myth. We all have the capacity to learn new things, no matter what our IQ or age. It is simply about taking risks, trying new (sometimes scary) things, and developing our self-awareness and ability to reflect.
Teaching and learning a second language has helped me to break through my own limits and I find it rewarding to support others through this process.
