At the end of 2019 we had another sad farewell at Languages International. Our teacher Liz has moved on to new role as Auckland University’s DELNA Language Advisor. Liz made an enormous contribution to LI over the years, taking on lots of different roles at the school. She started her career at LI in 2005 in our Student Services team. Inspired to start teaching, in 2006 Liz completed her Cambridge CELTA teacher training course here at LI. She showed a great talent for teaching, getting a very rare ‘A’ pass for the CELTA. Later Liz went on to do the Cambridge Delta at LI and then went on to become a teacher trainer, teaching Cambridge CELTA courses.
Liz was also a leader in introducing more technology in teaching into LI’s classrooms. She researched and selected tools, set up systems and provided related professional development to colleagues.
During her time at LI, Liz was also published in academic journals and spoke at industry conferences.
As our Director of Studies, Nick Moore says, “Liz has been with us a long time and has made a huge impact on the school, our teachers and our learners. She brought a sense of wisdom to her work and increasingly provided leadership amongst our teachers in English for University and also in terms of technology in teaching.”
Liz says, “I loved working at LI and will miss my colleagues and students! The amazing people truly make it a great school. Thank you for all the opportunities and good times!”
We will miss Liz, but are happy to know she is just across the road.
All the best in your new role, Liz and thank you for all your hard work at Languages International!
All the best Liz! You’ll always be a star, no matter where you work. Your contribution to LI was enormous. I know you’ll be greatly missed. Hope to see you and the family down here again some time. Annie xx
We miss you a lot Liz, miss your crazy sense of humour, but it’s great that you are just across the road and we can have lunch or a vino together anytime. Wish you well in your new job! xox
miss you Liz! hope to catch up again soon 🙂
I am so glad about having had the opportunity of learning English with her. It was much more than English classes, Liz was always very kind and extremely precise to figure out our particular learning needs.
I miss so much her classes and my time at Languages International.
I wish you all the best, Liz!
I was lucky enough to have Liz as a teacher. She always knew how to get the best out of us and never failed to encourage us to become better! Liz was more than a teacher, she was/is a friend. Without her patience, passion and immense support, I wouldn’t have been able to meet the language requirements of my master’s.
Thank you for everything Liz! Only the best for your new challenge and future!
So proud of all you have done and all you’re doing Liz! We miss you so much. X
Hi Liz, Great working with you and sharing a lot of laughs! Best of luck for your future study!
Liz was such an amaizing teacher during my school time at Lenguages International in 2016. I know she will success wherever she goes. I wish her all the best in her new projects! Thanks for being my teacher Liz 🌻🤗
I wish you all the best at your new work Liz.
There‘s a huge thank you for everything I have learned during your classes. You always knew the best method and the best strategies to get a better result in topics where we had to do more effort than in others.
I miss your classes an humor and wish you lots of luck!
I’ve learned so much working with you all these years, Liz. Thank you! Such a huge loss for LI, but we all know you’re bound for bigger and better things. I’m so proud of you, my friend xx
It is really sad to hear that Liz has left LI. I’ve learned a lot with her and I still remember in my second week in elementary class when she told me that my English has improved which gave me a push ahead to the next level. Now I’m an English teacher and I’m thankful to you all for teaching me and giving me a great future.
Thanks Liz. I wish you the best luck!
Sad to hear you are leaving! Take with you all the many great friendships and memories…carry them into your next adventure in life. It was great working with you! Best wishes from the middle of nowhere!
