Faye Bradbrook (UK) Director and Teacher
I’m Faye, director, teacher and founder of The Works English Language School (2011).
I am a qualified and experienced native speaking English and Drama teacher from the U.K. With a background in theatre and performing, gaining my diploma with the London College of Music at Thames Valley University. I believe in using drama and creativity to enhance language teaching with a strong focus on communication skills and active learning. Before moving to Hungary I qualified as an ESL teacher passing the Cambridge CELTA exam.
I arrived to Budapest in 2006 and have since gained a vast amount of experience in English teaching and curriculum planning. I have taught in various public and private schools, as well as private teaching to adults and teens. I am a highly enthusiastic individual who teaches with a friendly, encouraging and positive manner.
I am very proud to have the pleasure of working with talented and caring teachers who share my ethos.
Alongside teaching I continue to work as professional actress on stage, in films and as a voice-over artist. I have a website for acting WWW.FAYEBRADBROOK.COM.
