A word from Head of Business Development
Dear Student, It is that time of the year again when winter leaves the scene at the commencement of spring. We all love it, right? The beauty of this season brings happiness and joy all around, makes our minds very creative and gives energy to the body enabling us to start work full of confidence, and therefore; the best time to visit London is April through May when the temperatures are mild, and the city's parks are green and blooming. People go out on short trips during this season. Perhaps, it is also a time for you to take on a new challenge for your life or maybe for your career.
In this month’s newsletter, you will see what has happened and what’s to come in our Liverpool street and Soho Campuses. The students have taken part in many social activities and we have welcomed a large group of Ecuadorian students. Moreover; we also have something new in our Soho Campus. The Demo lessons; which we believe you will all be happy about, as those classes are scheduled according to your feedback and are set up to represent exactly how your classes will be when you begin studying with us. This is a great opportunity for you to check and decide before the modules start, and we are confident that we can exceed expectations. We are working with our students to lead the way, to inspire us and we will continue on this path, because our students are at the heart of everything we do at UKCE. Please now take some time and have a look at our March newsletter. Thanks Beren
What happened in UKCE in March?
Meet Keyla/ Academic Manager Soho Street
Hello Keyla! Could you please tell us about yourself?
Keyla: I was born in Lima, Peru but I came to London when I was only 4 years old. So, I have spent the majority of my life here.
- What's your story? How did you get where you are today? I’ve been a teacher for over 10 years. I first started teaching French and Spanish in Secondary Schools, but a few family friends asked me to teach them English, so I retrained to teach English to adults and I haven’t looked back! I absolutely love it.
- What was your life like before you began working as a teacher?
Keyla: I started teaching when I was quite young, so it’s all I’ve really known. I had a few summer jobs before then. One was in a pub, which was a lot of fun, and another was in an office which I didn’t particularly enjoy as I love interacting with different people, instead of always being in front of the computer.
- What was most surprising to you about English language teaching?
Keyla: I think, mainly the enthusiasm that our students have for learning. They are very focused and have clear goals for learning English. They value the input from the teachers and try to absorb as much as possible. This is a huge contrast to teaching in secondary schools!
- Could you tell our students what the achievement or contribution that you are most proud of is?
Keyla: I think in general; I would be most proud of my work here with my students. I love seeing the progress that they make and the confidence they gain throughout their course. It’s amazing to see how students change and how fluent they become.
- Is there anything or any advice you would like to share with students?
Keyla: Try to speak English as much as possible, make friends with people who don’t speak your first language, immerse yourself in the English culture. One of the best ways of doing this is by coming to the Social Programme events!
Thanks a lot for your time, Keyla.
