Hi, my name is Abbie and I’ve been an English teacher for nearly ten years. I want to help you get better at learning English.
I am writing an online course for English learners who are going to live in the UK. It’s full of useful phrases and vocabulary for getting around in daily life.
I’m also passionate about helping students get better at learning English. I can help you set goals, and achieve your main aims in learning English.
I’m British and I live in Japan, with my husband, daughter and a lot of crafting materials.
