Rianne Ariëns' Interview

Who is Rianne Ariëns? What is the single characteristic that you want most people to know about you?


How is your presentation connected to the umbrella topic of the conference of “The 5 Ts of TESOL: Teach, Train, Transform, Transcend, Trust”?

By taking your students out of the classroom you teach them that English is more than just a course you take at school. You teach them that the language itself is valuable and can be used outside of the classroom. You give the language a purpose that’s not directly related to the schools objective or to graduating.

Which is your favorite T? Teach, Train, Transform, Transcend, or Trust, and why?

I think transcend is my favourite one because I like to think that a good teacher should always try to teach more. Should try to surpass the original goals laid out by the broader organisation of the school, and elevate their teaching to a higher level.

What does TESOL Greece mean to you?

TESOL Greece to me is an opportunity to broaden my horizon, meet a lot of like minded people and expand my experience.

What are your expectations from the 40th TESOL Greece Annual International Convention?

To be able to meet a lot of people, share ideas and hopefully have a lot of new insights to take home with me.

If you could send a wish to TESOL Greece, which becomes 40 this year, what would it be?

That you may keep on doing all the amazing things that you already do, and that you may be around for 40 years more.
