About meHello, I'm Renier. I am a final year (2018) language student at the University of Pretoria with my major in English and French. I also finished my first year in Northern Sotho and Latin, I did one semester of Medical terminology and one semester in Dutch. Furthermore, I did one year of Criminology at the University. My home language is Afrikaans. I am fairly new to teaching, but my approach is that the learner must be encouraged to speak, read and write as much as possible in order to practice the language, and I as the teacher, should then correct mistakes and suggest ways in which the student can improve their language capabilities. I believe the best way to create a positive learning experience for students is to apply language skills to subjects in which students have some form of interest so that curiosity drives them to study even outside of the classroom and live the language. As a teacher, I provide the language framework for the students to build upon. If the students have quarries they ask me and I help them. Being an avid reader, I encourage my students to read as much as possible, as this is not only one of the best ways to learn new vocabulary but also opens up new worlds of knowledge and enjoyment. I also love writing. I also edited ‘Let’s Explore Plants’ and am currently the editor for the ‘Gardenia’ children’s book series and I am currently translating said books into Afrikaans.
