Yasemin Moustakim

French and Spanish Teacher

As a passionate linguist, I have always been fascinated by language acquisition and the ways in which language can connect people from all walks of life. Keen to develop my own linguistic proficiency, I completed my undergraduate degree in French and Spanish at the University of Leicester, during which time I was lucky to have the opportunity to live and work in France, Belgium and Spain. 

I hold a B.A. (Hons) French and Spanish from the University of Leicester, a P.G.C.E. in Modern Foreign Languages Secondary from Roehampton University, and MSc Learning and Teaching from the University of Oxford, Kellogg College.

My love of learning led me to embark on a two-year MSc at the University of Oxford. I spent my time at Oxford exploring the complex relationship between motivation and progress in Foreign Language learning and developing practical strategies to decrease the risk of disengagement. 

I am thrilled to be teaching French and Spanish at the British International School of Boston and excited to continue to grow personally and professionally, learning from and working with excellent educators and students from a variety of heritages and disciplines.
