I've found that the most effective method of teaching is to immediately follow up any learning with practice, e.g. exercises or an activity, as this tends to cement the lesson in a students brain. This is how I planned many of my lessons in France.
As part of the French half of my degree, I had to spend a year abroad. I spent my year working as an English language assistant in a French High School. I worked with students aged 16-21 with varying levels of English.

Planning and organizing a range of English lessons and teaching them to small groups of French students enhanced my leadership and organizational skills. Furthermore, living and working in a francophone country developed not only my language proficiency but also my problem-solving skills and cultural awareness.
Intern | STEALTH TRANSLATIONS
JULY 2016 – AUG 2016
Translating and proof-reading from French into English during my internship refined my skills in these areas. Project-managing provided me with a good level of commercial awareness, such as the importance of working to deadlines and maximizing profit, as well as augmenting my business communication skills.
Sales Assistant | DUNNES STORES, LARNE
NOV 2015 – JULY 2016
Serving customers at the cash register was my main responsibility, but I also filled other roles. For example, helping customers with queries and tidying the shop floor. This greatly improved my interpersonal and communication skills.
Over the years, I have taken part in several extra-curricular activities and schemes that have allowed me to work with others while becoming more educated or skilled in a range of areas. These include;
• Piano Grades 1-3
• Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Silver
• Volunteering at The Old Mill retirement housing and AgeNI, Larne
• Irish/Mandarin Chinese Beginners language course
• German at Post A’Level language course
• Brussels Study Tour
