A brief introduction to our Assistant Director of Studies, Peter Nurton. He explains a little about himself and what he likes about teaching English.
Where are you from?
I am from Welwyn, a small village 30 minutes north of London, England.
How long have you been in Mexico?
I’ve been living in Mexico since 2009.
How long have you been teaching English?
I’ve been teaching for 14 years.
How long have you been with UE?
I have been working at United English since 2013
Have you taught anywhere else?
I have taught English in Japan, Chile, Peru, Colombia, England and, of course, México. I also completed a Master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at Canterbury Christchurch University in England.
What do you like about teaching at United English?
I enjoy the dynamic in the school generated by working with lots of different nationalities.
What advice can you offer to language learners?
My tips for learning English are not only to rely on time in the classroom but to become a more autonomous learner and do lots of self study. I would also like to mention that I think it is important that you enjoy learning the language. Inevitably, mistakes will be made but this is part of the learning process. So never give up!
