I think singing is very good way to memorize and practice English. Watching animation and movies with subtitles makes learning more interesting.Listening, talking and writing about them is another very important way to improve. If you are really keen we can also use traditional book learning if that is what you want.
I have been an ESL English teacher for over 15 years. I am also a musician and technician.
My name is Philip. I am a linguist with a lot of interests. I can teach English in many ways, Singing is fun.
I must charge travel expenses for fuel.
