EAL Teachers & Staff

English as an Additional Language

    Anne Burraston

    EAL Teacher, Head of EAL

    Anne Burraston

    I have a BA from the University of Sydney in history, French and Japanese and an MA in Applied Linguistics from the University of New England, Australia. I’ve taught English as a foreign or additional language from tertiary to kindergarten level in Australia, France, Japan, Argentina and China.

    Working at BSB gives me a great opportunity to pull together all my previous experience with different levels, different ages and different nationalities – all in the one position. The level of challenge and reward that comes from working at BSB would be hard to find in any other single job.

    Head of Primary EAL

    I graduated from Dartington College of Arts with a degree in Music and Arts Management. As a graduate I came to China with VSO and taught English to university students. After returning to England I taught ESOL at the local adult community college. During this time I gained an adult teaching qualification. Due to my teaching experience, I was accepted onto the Essex Graduate Teacher Training Programme and was awarded my QTS. I gained my Primary Teaching experience working in a large primary school in Essex.

    Primary EAL Teacher

    Rebecca Song

    Hello! My name is Rebecca Song and I have a master degree from Melbourne Graduate School of Education, the University of Melbourne. I have worked in Australia and China as an EAL teacher in various schools. I like sports, especially cycling. I have great interest in multiculturalism and multilingualism.

    I enjoy teaching because I love working together with the students and see them make progress academically and personally. I believe there is always something new to learn every day from everyone. I am looking forward to joining the BSB Shunyi Primary team and working with experienced colleagues from all over the world.

    In 2009, I graduated from Swansea University with a Masters in Ancient Egyptian Civilisation. From 2006-2011, I also worked in museum education delivering activities to visiting school groups and working with young volunteers as part of the Children’s and Youth University.  In 2012, I moved to China to work as a teaching assistant at the British School of Shunyi, and Sanlitun. I really enjoyed my experience of working in schools, specifically working with EAL children.

    In 2015, I completed my CELTA at Sheffield University and became a Grade 1 English teacher at an International Bilingual School in Beijing. I am currently completing my Masters in Applied Linguistics and TESOL through the University of Leicester.
