My name is Anna Kennedy.

I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language for over 20 years.

I first started teaching English in my hometown Moscow in 1994. After my re-location to England, I completed CELTA, PGCE and ESOL Subject Specialism. For one year I taught ESOL at Thames Valley University. From 2006 I have been teaching ESOL and Functional English at the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) in Reading.

Founded in 1903, the WEA is a charity and the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education. 

In 2013/14 we delivered 9,700 part-time courses for over 70,000 students in England and Scotland.

For the last five years I have been running a Book Club with my classes and I have developed a particular interest in teaching English through literature.
