Website: 1. What was the best/worst thing about managing a language school? Sharing success/failing personally. 2. Do you think managing a language schools gave new insights into teaching? Yes, plenty. Especially with all the practical work with teachers: 1000s of hours of observations, feedback sessions, doing new teacher onboarding, taking about PDP and teaching goals, and running teacher workshops. I got to find out how dozens of other teachers think about teaching and working in the classroom. It… Read the rest

Equally important, given the incident has happened, what can be done to rectify the situation, if anything. Do you have… Read the rest
