Alexandra McDonald

South Africa

Hello there, my name is Alexandra, but you can call me Ali. I am 29 years old, and I am from beautiful Cape Town, South Africa.

I’m a native English speaker, so I will be able to answer any questions you may have. I’m also learning Korean, (안녕하세요!) so I understand how difficult it can feel sometimes to learn a new language. Well done for taking this brave first step!

I have a TEFL certificate and 4 years of teaching experience. I started teaching English in Vietnam 4 years ago, and completely fell in love with it! Since then I have taught in Vietnam, and now I teach privately in South Africa. I have taught a variety of ages, from very young kids of 3 years old, to young adults.

I’m very caring and supportive in my classes. This is a safe space to have fun, make mistakes and learn together. I believe we all learn in different ways, and that is very important to me. If you or your child would like to learn beginner phonics, or if you’d like to improve your conversation skills, business English, or if you need help preparing for tests – I can help you through it all.

Please let me know if you have any questions, we can talk before classes and I will see you soon!

        Free talking with a native speaker

        Level : Beginner

        Language : English

        This is the perfect time to ask any questions and get comfortable speaking to a native speaker! Do you ever feel like you do not know 'small talk' like a native speaker? Do you watch movies and think the characters speak very quickly, and use slang words you do not understand? Well, let me give you all the skills to perfect your conversational English just like a native. We will do free talking for the first part of the lesson and we will go into a focus section where we look at points to improve the free talking by improving areas of grammar. This will all lead to greater fluency. Please book 2 x 30 minute lessons together so that we have 5 x 1 hour lessons in each package.

        It was over as soon as I started class with Alexandra. It's a shame that time flies so fast as we're supposed to meet at the course class next time. I recommend it to everyone because the pronunciation is so clean and easy to understand. 그리고 한국드라마도 좋아하고 k-pop 도 좋아하고 너무나 활발하고 기분좋게 해주는 선생님 입니다 .
