My name is Susan and I have been teaching English for 3 years. My teaching career started at Action Language in Newcastle, helping refugees and asylum seekers gain various English qualifications in order to secure jobs and a life in the UK. I then taught in a public high school in Spain, teaching English while struggling to form a coffee order in Spanish with the help of my students. Many of the older teens in their last year of high school then went on to the Baccalaure and are now studying English at university. Last year, I worked in a private language school in Kedzierzyn-Kozle, Poland, teaching students from 4-75 years old.

It was a fantastic year, where I got to travel around the country as well as meet some amazing people, and I am pleased to say my Polish was ‘comprehendible'!

I moved to South Yorkshire in September 2018 and began working at the wonderful NESE. Alongside this, I am also studying for my Master’s degree in TESOL and Linguistics in Sheffield. This school has given me a great opportunity to teach students from all backgrounds and of various levels and for that, I am deeply grateful. The teaching team is very friendly and always ready with a smile and a cup of tea, but it’s the students that make our job so enjoyable and worthwhile.

Life began with 1 student in 1 small classroom and we have since grown to 110 students studying on a weekly basis, with 7 modern classrooms.

At NESE, you will practise communicating in English in a fun and interactive way. Every lesson will be different and you will leave each class feeling a little more confident about your future.

Providing English courses of the highest quality to international students since 2014.

The success of this school has come from the success of the students.

At this school, our teachers live to teach and do not teach to live.
