Embassy Cambridge

Tell us about yourself!

I’m from a little town called Sandwich [yes, Sandwich!] in Kent. I’ve lived here in Cambridge for about 34 years now though.

When did you start working for Embassy Cambridge?

A very long time ago, actually well before the school was a part of Embassy.  In 1982, I started working here but it was called Newnham Language Centre then.

What is your role at Embassy English?

My title is Head of Teacher training courses, but most of the time I teach General English and exam courses.

What is your favorite part of your job at Embassy Cambridge?

Of course, interacting with the students most of the time, but I also really enjoy learning about language and how to make it understandable to learners. You never stop discovering new patterns and mysterious things. I’ve never forgotten reading a book which explored Grammar as sorcery!

What are your favorite places to hang out around the centre?

I like to relax in a coffee shop and read the paper.

What advice would you give a student starting their first day in your city?

Don’t try to see or do too much. Talk to the other students to find out where the best places to go are, but try to find places where you can meet local people.

Do you have any tips for success in reaching student’s English speaking goals?

Plan a discussion that you want to have, collect helpful vocabulary, rehearse and then do it.

What should a student know about the staff at your centre?

We like it if students ask us lots of questions in the lessons. It makes us feel wanted!

What do you think are the favourite foods to try in your city?

The Chelsea buns at Fitzbillies are quite famous. They are sweet and sticky but ok once in a while.
