Elena

Perfect! Eugene is a great and passionate teacher ! I have been enjoying taking english lessons with him. All the homework that he send me is always very interesting and perfectly meets my needs. Eugene adapts each session to my specific needs (phone calls, presentations and so on). My speaking abilities, my fluency as well as my confidence has improved. I strongly recommend Eugene as an English teacher !!

Eugene's response

Elena works as a Process Engineer in a pharmaceutical company in Switzerland. She needs English because she will take on some new responsivities at work. She has an advanced level of English already (B2/C1) and so we have been working focusing on many areas – her confidence of using English and discussing her work, connectors and conjunctions (vocabulary and grammar of these), how to present herself at work, dependent prepositions, past modals, Scottish accent comprehension (she will be working with Scottish people), present perfect, vocabulary such as quite/fairly/somewhat, conditionals, general business topics such as Starbucks, Nestle, Monsanto and more.
The homework I’ve been sending has also been regarding the mentioned above.
Elena is a motivated and committed student of English, and I’ve enjoyed our lessons. Thank you Elena!

I started classes with Eugene by a work colleague recommendation. I wanted to improve my conversation skills. In the first class I was very impressed how he could easily understand my needs and to show how I could improve my English language. The classes are very interesting and and also fun. Many times, I needed his help in rush situations and he was always there to attend me in short time. So, I highly recommend him as an English teacher.

Luke

Eugene is a very passionate and smart linguist and a funny entertaining teacher. He is clever in the way he explains concepts and is funny, so as to make lessons enjoyable. I'd definitely recommend him as a teacher.

Interview with Eugene

QUESTION 01 | 08
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Eugene — I speak English because of my origin. I am British.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Eugene — This question is not easy, since we are talking about a language spoken by about 350 million native speakers and about 700 million non-native speakers. Can there be a person who is representative of a diverse language culture of over 1,000,000,000 people? English is also the official language of +50 countries. What person can represent the culture of this language?

I would have to resort to picking a series of famous people who speak English:

William Shakespeare - a very famous writer from the 15th century

Mr Bean - the comedian who shows an awkward middle class person

Sherlock Holmes - the famous fictional character

The Queen - The British Queen, being a symbol of British culture.

Friends - the world famous American TV sitcom, showing the life of 6 Americans.

Usain Bolt - he is an iconic athlete, who speaks English a first language.

In fact, any musician or athlete can be picked - David Beckham, The Beatles.

Any politician can be picked too.


If I pick one person as a representative of the language's culture, I will also reduce and limit the language to what that person represents - millionaire, upper class, athlete, musician, TV show.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behaviour in the language that you particularly like?
Eugene — I like the tradition of going to the pub in England. There's normally no music, and it's a place for friends to gather and chat. The pub is central to English culture. People have a beer or a different drink, and talk about their lives.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Eugene — English is the most important global language. English helps people make connections with people from other countries. It is also an important skill in your career. There is no other language that is as global as English. Other languages are important in specific regions, like Spanish and Latin America, Mandarin and China, Arabic and the Middle East, but English is important in the whole world.
QUESTION 05 | 08
What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Eugene — The difficulty depends on the level of the student.

English pronunciation is not so easy, and there are many different accents - American, English, Scottish, Irish, Australian, Jamaican etc.

What you need to do is to watch English listening exercises, based on your level. I always send listening exercises so that my students can practice their listening skills

Another difficulty of learning English is perhaps phrasal verbs. They are the barrier between an intermediate or upper intermediate level and advanced. They are very similar to one another but have entirely different meanings. Native speakers use them often, which makes things confusing and tricky.
How to learn them? Repetition of them is important, but also listening and reading texts containing phrasal verbs - you can find plenty online
QUESTION 06 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
Eugene — Like many of my students, I've studied a language at school but did not make much progress in communicating in that language. We focused a lot on grammar, vocabulary and reading, but less on listening and speaking. In fact, speaking was the skill we practiced the least. This means that I couldn't have a spontaneous German conversation now. This is similar to many people's experiences of learning languages.

I now understand that practicing speaking and listening is very important, and I make my students practice these skills a lot.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
Eugene — I have experience of travelling to other countries when not being able to speak the local language, and then I learned that language.

In 2012 I travelled alone for 3 months in Central America. Most local people I met did not speak any English at all. I experienced the difficulty of not being able to communicate effectively with people. I started the trip with almost zero Spanish.

During my trip I did an intensive Spanish language course for 2 weeks and I stayed with a family during that time. After 3 months of travelling I was able to have conversational Spanish at an A2 level.

This experience taught me how it feels to be a student of a language. I experienced the difficulty of almost not being able to communicate. Then my level improved and I experienced how it feels to communicate on a basic level.

I feel that trip in 2012 made me a better teacher of English, because I understood how students feel. I also saw new methods of teaching. I learned a lot, and I feel I became a better English teacher because I had to learn a foreign language myself.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in language?
Eugene — What makes me a Superprof in English is my teaching experience, qualifications of teaching English, and my experience of learning foreign languages.

I am qualified by the University of Cambridge to teach English (CELTA certificate) as well as another certificate called "120 hours TEFL" by the TEFL Academy.

I have taught in Israel, England and Guatemala. I've also taught English online since January 2017. It means I've taught in classrooms, one-on-one, different professions, ages and nationalities. I have a diverse experience of teaching English.

My experience of learning languages, starting from a complete beginner level - fluent Spanish, intermediate French, beginner Italian and Portuguese. This means I understand the process a student goes through, and I also understand what is effective and important.
