My name is Shimei Botes and I am from South Africa. I grew up learning two languages (English & Afrikaans) in a country that has up to 11 national languages. We are a country known for its vibrant culture and color and this is what makes teaching so amazing for me! I am used to interacting with people from around the globe as I have been teaching English since the beginning of 2019. I absolutely love teaching because not only does it mean I get to talk to different people, but I also get to give them a gift - the gift of language!

Lessons with Shimei are engaging. I have a lot of fun on every single one. We discuss different topics from music and art to space exploration and physics.

The lessons we are trying lately are very engaging as I am required to talk and discuss a lot of different topics at once. This is quite a good idea Shimei introduced, and I think I will improve my speaking skills more quickly.
