Ros Thomas (1)

Primary EAL Teacher


In 2009, I graduated from Swansea University with a Masters in Ancient Egyptian Civilisation. From 2007-2012, I also volunteered and worked in museum education, delivering activities to visiting school groups. In 2012, I moved to China to work as a teaching assistant at the British School of Shunyi and Sanlitun. I enjoyed my experience of working in schools, specifically working with children who use EAL.

 In 2015, I completed my CELTA through the English Language department at Sheffield University and became a Grade 1 English teacher at a bilingual school in Beijing and later joined BSB Shunyi as an EAL Teacher in 2016.

 I recently completed a Masters in Applied Linguistics and TESOL through the University of Leicester, focusing on teaching English to Primary Young learners. I am also in the process of completing the International PGCE through the University of Derby, UK ( due for completion August 2022).

 I truly believe that the process of language learning is unique to each child, and it is a privilege to support students when they are acquiring a new language. My favourite aspects of working with young language learners include seeing students grow in confidence in their language skills, experimenting with new vocabulary and sentence structures, and sharing connections between their first language and English.

 Outside of school, I like to be out and about exploring my local Hutong with my dog. I love cycling around Beijing, hiking, and reading. I’ve also recently started bouldering and learnt how to play mahjong!
