Wendy Fox - German Tuition
Firstly, Wendy has a BA(Hons) degree in Modern Languages from the University of Salford.
Wendy has a wealth of experience
After marrying a German, Wendy then lived and worked as a teacher / freelance translator in Berlin, Leipzig and Frankfurt. After several years, she became completely fluent in the language. Wendy also gained a valuable insight into the life and culture of Germany (both in the communist East and capitalist West). This knowledge has proved to be invaluable for providing first-hand background information for the current A level set texts and films such as Goodbye Lenin and Das Leben der Anderen.
On returning to Britain, Wendy worked as a lecturer at what was formally known as Plymouth College of Further Education. Here, (City College) she was the main German teacher for GCSE and A-level – with excellent results. She also taught German and French at Key Stage 3.
In addition to this, she taught English as a Foreign Language and set up and directed the CFE EFL International Summer School for seven years. Furthermore, Wendy was also a key teacher trainer for the Trinity College EFL Certificate course and for the City and Guilds 730 Teacher Training course. During this time she was an examiner for the London Chamber of Commerce German oral exams too.
