Christine Adams      |    Beginner Class                |  Monday - Friday   Mornings

                              |    Welcome to Canada        |   Monday - Friday   Afternoons

Hello! I teach Beginner English in the mornings and afternoons at Limestone Community Education. I have taught many different things, but in 2013, I discovered that what I like best is teaching English to newcomers to Canada. I love to help people learn more about life in Canada and learn how to speak, listen, read, and write a new language. I look forward to getting to know you! 


Hina Waliani,        |   Intermediate Class             |   Monday - Friday  Mornings                                   |   Conversation Class            |  Monday - Friday   Afternoons

     Hello! My name is Hina and in my afternoon conversation class, we will be talking about different topics based on students' preference. We will read passages, watch videos, work on related vocabulary and sentence structures. For each topic, we will cover reading writing, listening, and speaking. However, we will focus more on having discussions and speaking skills.

 I majored in Psychology and Linguistics at Queen's, then acquired my teaching certification and a Master's Degree in Applied Linguistics at Brock University. I enjoy teaching ESL to connect and learn from individuals all around the globe. My hobbies are trying new food and exploring places in the great outdoors, gardening, boating, travelling, scuba diving and reading. My academic interests relate to cognitive approaches for enhanced vocabulary acquisition and language development, as well as investigating techniques for building an inclusive classroom community.
