‘Teaching is a fabulous learning experience and I couldn’t think of a better job.’

I have a degree in History from University College London and Ca’ Foscari Venice. I have a variety of teaching qualifications as I’ve been teaching for over half my life in the UK, Italy, Morocco, Syria and Jordan.


Andreea Pulpea

I am a teacher at the British Council Jordan. I have a Delta, an MA in Linguistics and an MSc in International Relations and I have given teacher training workshops on skills development in Algeria, Jordan, Lebanon, the UK, Germany and Poland. I am also a materials writer for the British Council LearnEnglish global project and Premier Skills English, and I have published articles in the ETP magazine and on the OnestopEnglish website. I love my job and I also love coffee, football, history, exploring old cities and meeting new people. A perfect day for me is one which includes a good book, an interesting conversation and watching a Premier League match in a cozy pub.

In 2005 I started my first job in education which was a year in North-East China teaching 4 to 7 year-olds. Fast forward 15 years to 2020 and I have taught anything from Kindergarten to classes of Bank managers in England, China, Ghana, South Korea, Egypt, Malaysia, and Jordan. I love the variety the job brings, the range of people you meet and the positive impact you see it having on people's lives. In my free time you are most likely to see me running around Jordan's trails and streets or eating hummus and felafel in one of Amman's many great restaurants.
