Selene English Bootcamp Circle

Selene (from English Bootcamp Circle) kindly joined us for a conversation about English learning today. We spoke about teaching English to children, the distinction between a teacher and a coach, common questions that English learners have, and much more!

One of my favourite things that Selene said was: You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be clear.
