Meet some of our teachers

Ali Macdonald

I like living in Jordan, because the people here are so friendly and welcoming.

I chose to become a teacher because I like speaking with different people every day. What I love about teaching Young Learners is that children are so full of interesting new ideas. I also try to make my lessons as fun as possible, with lots of interactive activities, including games and music.

The one piece of advice I give to all my students to use Learn English Teens to practise and improve their English at home.

Dina Arafat

"I enjoy teaching students of all ages and when I plan my lessons I try to include a range of games and activities which will help them learn and enjoy English."

Dina has a Degree in English Literature, an MA in Curricula and Instruction of English as a Second Language and a CELTA.

After teaching for 14 years in schools and community colleges, Dina retrained as an English language teacher and now teaches adults, kids and teens at the British Council.

Sandra Randall

I like living in Jordan because I love the outdoors and visiting historical places.

I chose to become a teacher because I love the enthusiasm of young learners and helping them to discover the world around them. I try to make my lessons fun and interesting, so that my learners are engaged and want to be there.

The one piece of advice I’d give to all my learners is to make the most of any opportunity to practice speaking English, and don’t worry about making mistakes.
