Hi, my name is Monika, and I teach German and English as a Foreign Language.
I’m from Munich in Germany but I’ve been living – and teaching – in Bristol for over 10 years…it’s a great place!
I first came here to do a PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages at Bristol University after graduating from Munich University with a teaching degree (English and German). Since then, I’ve also completed the Trinity Certificate and Diploma in TESOL, both here at IH Bristol.
In my lessons, I like to ensure that learners get plenty of opportunities to practise what they’ve learnt in different ways. I try to adapt to the needs of the students as much as possible, and I’m happy to answer questions to the best of my ability – I like questions! Most importantly, however, even though I know that learning a language can be hard work at times, I want to make sure we’re also having fun!
In my free time, I enjoy reading, walking and travelling.
