“In theory, there is no difference between practice and theory. In practice, there is.” - Jan L. A. van de Snepscheut. We understood that in order to learn something, or get better at it, we need to practice many times. Especially, to be a successful future teacher, practice and experience are the most important. Fortunately, I had a chance to widen my perspectives on a field trip to UK English Center.

- To be a tourist guide.


“What do you want to be when you’re big and tall?”. My buddy asked me this when I was 10. “To be a tourist guide”, I replied. Time flew. Then I entered UTE. Time flew again. I graduated from my beloved UTE and I changed my mind: I want to be a translator.

I’ve been working as a Translator-cum-Interpreter in Construction for 10 years. I love my profession for several reasons.
