ELIZABETH LEITH - TEACHER
I have many years of teaching experience and have taught in College, at the University of Edinburgh and at Capital School of English. I have always particularly liked ‘Capital’ because of its care for the well-being of its students and the emphasis laid on understanding culture in the UK and on working together. Both are important elements for success in the UK system of education.
I enjoy teaching English to speakers of other languages and have taught very many students from China at every level from lower levels of English, through IELTS and other exams. I have taught several groups of teachers of English from China and have acted as a visiting teacher in various schools in China. I study Chinese (I find it difficult, but that helps me to understand difficulties students might have in learning a language) and I am interested in the culture and history of the country.
