About the author


AlphaLinguaFounderProfilePicWelcome to the site! Here’s a little bit of background on me, Diane, the founder and author of Alpha ELT.

I grew up just outside Johannesburg until I was 18, when I moved to the UK, where I lived, studied and worked for 12 years. In 2015 I moved ‘home’ to South Africa.

I have an Honours degree in English and Media from the University of Brighton, UK. My specialisms included: linguistics; creative writing; journalism; discourse analysis.

I also have both a certificate (CELTA) and a post-graduate degree (DELTA) in Language Teaching from the University of Cambridge, UK.

My experience includes:

– Language teacher training and development

– English language teaching to first- and second-language teens and adults

  • General English
  • Business English
  • Academic English
  • Course and syllabus design
  • Materials design and development
  • Mentoring and career counselling

– Private English and Afrikaans tutoring to primary and high school pupils

– Content writing for websites and online media portals

If there’s anything else you’d like to know, drop me an email.

Enjoy the site!
