She has been teaching in the UK for over 5 years, and previously taught in France and Italy. Beatrice teaches language courses at a variety of levels and courses and provides training for other teachers. She undergoes continuous training herself to be up to date with the latest teaching techniques and didactic tools. In her lessons, Beatrice uses a mix of didactic approaches and aims to develop all the four language skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing), paying particular attention to the communicative aspect.
