LORIANN

Assistant Director of Studies

LoriannHi! I’m Loriann!

I’ve been working as a teacher at Lanto Education since 2006. Over this 11-year period I’ve been continuously improving my qualification. In 2011 I successfully completed a Cambridge CELTA course. In 2015 I started a 2-year marathon to pass DELTA.

Now I’m a holder of all three DELTA Modules which has completely changed my views about teaching English as a second language. Thus means learning to teach at international standards which breaks traditional grammar-driven curriculum which many teachers rely on in a non- English speaking environment.

I believe teaching is an art which has to be learnt and developed over many years!
