Have you ever lived abroad? How was your experience?

Yes. I have lived in Greece, Qatar, Al Ain and spent 2 years travelling around Vietnam, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. I love experiencing new cultures, meeting new people and seeing the sights of the world!

How long have you been working for Experience English?

I have worked at Manchester Academy of English since 2008 and both Manchester Academy of English and English Language Centre York since 2013

Can you tell us a bit about your position?

Where do I start?! As General Manager of both schools I am very busy travelling trying to split my time between them. I have great teams in my school so I rely heavily on them to make sure the students have the best experience!

What do you like most about your job?

The variety of my job. No two days are the same!

Tell us something that makes your job worthwhile.

Meeting people from all over the world and making sure that the students enjoy their stay with us.

Why do you think students should come to study English in the UK?

If students want to learn English, they should study in an English speaking country where they can experience the culture and traditions too. The UK is a great place to learn and live

What’s your top tip for English learners?

Study hard but enjoy your time too! Get to know where you live and travel around the UK. You will be amazed at what you see!
