Hello my name is Tony Bell, I am a native speaker, from Bristol in the Southwest of England. After spending time in England teaching and helping people from various countries learn or improve their English, I then moved to Germany,to try and improve my German speaking skills.While I was there, I was teaching and giving conversational lessons to not only to Germans, but also people from Poland, Spain, and China.I was then offered a job teaching in Poznan, so I moved here in July 2012.I liked it so much I decided to stay. I am available to help anyone wishing to learn English, or just to improve their conversation skills.I believe with my sense of humour and calm relaxed way of teaching, learning and speaking English can be fun and enjoyable. It is a fantastic language to be able to understand and speak, which will open you up to a world of great movies, music, travel opportunities, and possibilities of even living in an English speaking country.Talking in English is something I have been doing for a very long time now, and I am very good at it, so I would love to help you learn this wonderful language too!
