Miriam Levie
Director & Course Tutor
Nationality: Dutch

Qualifications: MA Applied Linguistics, TEFL Certificate, BA Translation Studies, BA Tourism Managament

Experience: Over 10 years´experience in ELT and Teacher Training.

I gained my first experience in teaching English as a foreign language when I came to Spain in January 2005 to study Spanish. Spanish people have a generally low level of foreign language skills and I found out there was a big demand for English teachers. First, I started giving one-on-one classes and later I was offered a job at a language school, followed by a position as an in-company English teacher. I enjoyed it so much that I realised teaching foreign languages was my true vocation. I understand what my students are going through, because I know exactly what it is like to learn another language. After several years of teaching I wanted to further develop my skills related to the theory and practice in the area of teaching English and decided to study a Master’s Degree in Applied Linguistics at the Universidad Autónoma of Madrid. In this programme I became specialised in Second Language Acquisition and Teacher Training and I decided to set up a high quality TEFL school in Malaga and Rome with other experienced teacher trainers.
Iza Mania
Course Director

Nationality: Polish

Qualifications:

Cambridge DELTA, Cambridge CELTA, MA English Philology (TEFL), BA English Philology (linguistics)
 

Experience:

  Over 10 years’ experience in ELT and Teacher Training teaching in Poland, UK, Spain and Italy. I started teaching English when I was in high school and quickly discovered it was my thing. Doing a Certificate in ELT made it possible for me to work abroad and teach English in different places and work with many fascinating people. While I was working as a Senior Teacher in a language school in Poland, I decided to raise my qualifications and do Cambridge DELTA. This has been a challenging yet very rewarding experience. During my teaching career, I have been working in summer schools, language schools and at university teaching General English, Business English, EAP, Cambridge Exam and Young Learners classes. As a Teacher Trainer, I have been working in the beautiful cities of Malaga and Rome. What I like most about teacher training is meeting new interesting and enthusiastic people who I can hopefully infect with my passion for teaching English!

Qualifications:

BA in foreign languages (English & Italian), MA in Cultural Management & Multilingual Comunication.

Experience:

Passionate about languages, I always dreamt about working in a multicultural environment. After studying in Rome in 2018, I fell in love with this beautiful city and decided that I wanted to settle down here for a while. Apart from languages, I love to spend some time in the historical centre or at the beach, but also to dance salsa! I look forward to welcoming you at our school in Rome!
