The Non Native Speaker

Empowering Non-Native Speakers around the Globe

Continuous Professional Development
for Multilingual Teachers

The pervasive monolingual bias present within many societies threatens the well-being of bilingual or multilingual professionals. Bilingual–monolingual comparisons with methodological approaches upholding monolingual norms are not equitable to most teachers. As non-native speaker teachers, we often search for ways to prove our worth, and often times we do so through trainings and more trainings, certificates on top of certificates. 

These Live Training Sessions will be held every month – from July to December 2023 – to uncover hot topics for English teachers on mindset, strategy, career advice, bilingualism, multilingualism, language acquisition, pronunciation and much much more.

Each session has a special guest who will be conducting the training session to give their expert take on these topics and trends in English Language Teaching to encourage, uplift and inform participants on how to make the most out of theirs skills as non-native teachers and tap into their full potential.

About the Session: In the dynamic world of language teaching, NNESTs often find themselves navigating the challenging terrain of over-compensation, over-justification, over-qualification – the relentless pursuit of proving their worth and expertise beyond measure.

She has moved away from language teaching and is now a mindset coach, helping her high-level clients overcome the mental and emotional barriers that prevent them from enjoying their English.
