Biography Elsien Gale
I have been teaching English (and French, but that's a long time ago!) for many years, to all kinds of students: teenagers, a few children, adults of all levels or nationalities, different backgrounds, in different types of settings and a few different countries, like China, the Pacific, Britain, France, Belgium, Nepal … Some students came through their business, others were in state, language schools or summer schools, some were face-to-face individual learners, some were taught in groups, others received lessons via Skype or telephone, also individually or in groups.
