Karen Ireland

Profession: English Language Teacher

Teaching Experience: I've taught English in private language schools to students of all ages and levels. I always give instant correction for grammar/ vocabulary/ pronunciation errors because I firmly believe this is the best way for a student to learn! Feel free to ask me about my teaching style.

Interests: I love photography and travelling. I'm originally from the west coast of Ireland but recently I moved to Budapest- the capital city of Hungary. I've also lived in England, Spain, Australia and the US. I really enjoy learning about new cultures, and I particularly enjoy hearing from my students about life in their countries!

In my spare time I like to read, watch documentaries, listen to podcasts and follow current affairs. Tell me something interesting you've learned recently!

Education: I have a university degree in Speech and Language Therapy and I have a CELTA certificate (official Cambridge qualification), so I've been learning about the English language for many years and enjoy teaching it.
