At GV Brisbane we ask our staff every week to answer some questions about themselves. We call it a ‘Teacher Feature,’ and it is intended to help you learn more about some of the dedicated staff that we have here.
This week we are featuring one of our Intermediate teachers, Daniela.
How long have been teaching at GV Brisbane and what did you do before you worked here?
“I have worked at GV for nine months (since March ’08). Before starting here, I was at University doing my teaching degree.”
Do you speak another language and what was your biggest challenge when learning it?
“Apart from English, of course, I also speak Romanian and German. When I was learning a new language, I found that speaking was the biggest challenge.”
Please tell us about a student in your class who you feel has made outstanding progress..
“Young Soo Jeong. He is improving every day and is an asset to the class. He interacts well with others and his English continues to improve. He works hard and students enjoy his company as he is also funny.”

“Seeing students progress, meeting new people, the variety of nationalities and all the lovely staff members.”
If you weren’t a teacher, what job do you think you would be doing now?
“A full-time writer or linguist. I absolutely love the study of languages.”
What do you like the most about Brisbane?
