We would like to congratulate our teacher Melissa Hecksher, who has graduated from the University of Auckland with a Master of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages with First Class Honours. Melissa is adding this to an already impressive array of qualifications including her Bachelor of Arts degree, Cambridge CELTA and Cambridge Delta.

Melissa says, “I really enjoyed doing the MTESOL. After having done the DELTA, which is highly practical, learning more about the theories that inform a lot of what I do in my teaching practice was interesting and enriching. I think the two qualifications complement each other and I’m really pleased with my decision to complete both.”

Melissa is also preparing to join our Teacher Training team and teach TESOL and Cambridge CELTA courses at Languages International. Peter Nicoll, Acting Director of Teacher Training says, “We’re really pleased to have Melissa join the Teacher Training team. Having done her CELTA and Delta with us at Languages International, teacher training is a logical next step in her career.”
