I’m Kate Surkova, a teacher, and a learner. I’m sure that these two things go hand in hand. I teach both English and French, as well as help those who love learning languages independently. I do believe that effective learning requires a friendly and safe environment. Being the head of our Methodology SIG, I’m trying to turn reading books on teaching into pleasure and fun. I’m also keen on psychology, LARP, music, and history.
Nataliya Ivleva is an English teacher (CAE, CPE, CELTA) and linguist who, alongside teaching the language to adults, dedicates a lot of her time to popularizing linguistic knowledge. She is interested in how human language works and how our brain processes it. She also explores the etymology of the English lexis by tracking down its roots and sometimes surprising connections with Russian or other languages.
I’m Elena Tsifarkina, year 3 participant of TTT.Apart from being a teacher, I’m a qualified journalist with the degree of Moscow State Linguistic University. And, of course, I’m an avid reader, devoted listener and a bit of a chatterbox. I invite you to join the book sig to be able to talk about literature with like-minded people.
An English teacher who used to dream about a career of a film critic (and had her own program on a local radio station for some time), then left it all for teaching, and now can happily do both in TTT Film.
