Welcome to Three Wise Kangaroos. My name is Gaby and I am on a mission to spread my fascination with the English language and share with you some of my best ideas for fun and effective English classes. On my blog you will also find plenty of stories from planet Australia for a bit of cultural flavour.
I have been an EFL teacher for over 15 years and I am absolutely passionate about the language, which I adore for the cornucopia of its lexicon, the intricacies of its grammar, the erratic nature of its pronunciation and the multitude of varieties it comes in, not to mention the versatility of uses it can be put to. In simple words, I believe English is fun to learn and useful to know and I am going to prove it to you in this very blog.
When it comes to my qualifications, I hold an Master’s degree in the English Language and Literature and a Diploma of Education. In my professional life I have taught teenage and adult learners, trained teachers, designed curricula, acted as an examiner, developed new tools for language learning, worked at secondary schools, language schools and in corporate environments as well as run my own school of English. And since I’ve always had a penchant for crafting my own teaching resources, I decided that setting up my own website was the best way of sharing these resources and ideas with students and fellow teachers of English.
Since I made Australia my new home in 2018, I find myself absolutely fascinated and massively inspired by the Lucky Country. I feel that Three Wise Kangaroos wouldn’t be complete without a few Aussie stories in the background, which I am going to include for your entertainment and interest.
Have a browse and hopefully see you again soon.
