Olá, my name is Helen and I teach English and Portuguese beginners 1 and 2 at International House Bristol. I studied Spanish and Portuguese at Bristol University languages and have lived and worked in Spain, Portugal and Argentina. I love learning about culture through language, and think it’s a really important way to enhance language learning. I will get you speaking and communicating with new phrases straight away and in my classes there will be lots of opportunities to practise new language structure to develop confidence. I also think listening as much as possible to authentic language is really important.
Music is a big part of my life. I sing in a choir and play the piano. I also like relaxing by doing yoga, cooking and walking my dog.
