Über Mich

Hello! My name is Anneka and I've been teaching English since 2010. It started out as a dream of moving to Japan after university, so I took a TESOL course. I studied Japanese for a year and was completely ready to move. But then I couldn't get a job through the JET programme like I wanted. So I moved to South Korea instead. I taught English at a hogwan for one year and then in a middle school through GEPIK for two more. After three years I knew I wanted to be a teacher, so I went back to Canada and back to university for my bachelor of Education.
For two years I was living in the UK and teaching English to young British students in the East Midlands, but now I'm back in Canada.

As an adult, I feel like I've always been interested in languages, but the truth is I was not always a great student when learning French as a second language as a child. However, since leaving home for university, I have been fascinated with how languages work. I've dabbled in Japanese, German, Korean and Dutch in the past ten years, but I haven't mastered any of them. I believe that in order to properly learn a new language you really need to WANT to learn it. You need to put in the hours of practice and you need to keep it up. It's like going to the gym: you won't get fit by going once every few weeks. You won't learn a language that way either.
