Elizabeth Gould

Hi, my name is Lizzie Gould. I first came to La Paz as a volunteer teacher and I fell in love with the culture, so I decided to come back! I have a degree in Media Arts from Royal Holloway University of London, and I also have a TEFL qualification. I am currently learning Spanish, so I can empathize with my students. I use my experience of learning a language to inform my lessons, utilizing the effective methods I have found as a student to help those in my class. As a teacher I like to make my classes fun and varied. Whatever medium works for the student and the concept I am trying to teach, we will use it in our lessons, even if it means we sing English Karaoke at the top of our lungs! Learning a language is not just gaining knowledge, it is building a skill, creating opportunities and opening up the world. I hope to see you in class!
