I’m Ariel! I grew up in Bath and did my teacher training here. I have a theoretical background from studying Linguistics at Cambridge, but my classes are lively and interactive. I’m a huge language nerd – I speak seven – and a writer. I love bringing storytelling into the classroom, as we are surrounded by stories in our everyday lives. For example, I run a podcast called Easy Stories in English, where I read out short fiction graded to different levels for learners of English. In my free time I read, write, and study languages – I told you I was a nerd!
