Anna is an experienced ESL and EAP teacher who enjoys challenges and rewards of her profession. After teaching in the language school IH Interpress in Astana, Kazakhstan, she had my first working experience abroad as an EAP instructor at Eastern International University, Vietnam. Then I joined a Preparatory School programme at new Abdullah Gul University in Kayseri, Turkey. Eight years later, I moved to the UK to complete a Teacher Training course and get Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Now I am excited about working as an EAL teacher at WIST and looking forward to joining the team!
