Hi there, I’m Abbie
Welcome to Why Not Languages! I founded this company because I absolutely love learning languages, and I want every student to have the opportunity to do and succeed at this. After all, why not? Check out a bit more about us below:
Hi! I'm Abbie, and I am a First Class graduate who studied French and Spanish at King's College London. In the summer of 2019 I returned from my year abroad, where I studied for one semester in Aix-en-Provence in the South of France, and then for one semester in Barcelona in Spain. I have loved studying Modern Languages since I was in Primary school, and I am especially interested in all aspects of grammar of the two languages, which I enjoy teaching to my students! Currently I have taught over 1,250 hours of lessons, in both French and Spanish, as well as English.
Do not hesitate to ask me for any advice on university applications; whether it concerns entry to English universities, or what it is like to study at one abroad. At the moment, I am also learning Catalan, and in the future I would love to learn many more languages!
As well as teaching French and Spanish, I have also travelled to Poland and Hungary to teach English, and at the moment I am in the process of gaining my TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) qualification. I also have a full DBS Check.
Finally, I will mention my love for travel, which has definitely grown since spending a year living abroad. Learning another language can prove to be invaluable when travelling abroad, as it allows you to truly get to grips with the culture that you are experiencing, and helps you to understand another way of life.
Why should you learn a language?
There are many reasons why you should learn a language; here are some of my favourites:
First of all, they're fun! What better way to learn a new hobby than understand other cultures and the languages behind them.
It is a well-known fact that languages help to improve your memory and sharpen your mind.
They boost your brain power; your brain will be able to form new patterns and also develop your critical thinking skills.
Finally, knowledge of a second language can help boost your opportunities in the world of work, and also to study abroad.
