Julia Ayscough

Secondary Academic Manager

I've been teaching English for over 10 years, working in Ecuador, Vietnam and Myanmar. I completed the Delta in 2018, with a focus on teaching Secondary students. I’ve been with the British Council Myanmar for 6 years and I love teaching Myanmar students. They are bright and inquisitive, and I always leave the classroom feeling inspired. I encourage my students to be autonomous, think critically, and be creative. When I am not teaching you will find me hiking in a forest or swimming in the sea.
