Introducing Janine Barnes

I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 1999, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Performer’s Diploma in Speech and Drama. I began my teaching career in 2000 in Cape Town, before going abroad to further my experience. I spent two years teaching in London, where I prepared students for Cambridge First, Advanced and Proficiency examinations. I also taught business and medical English during this time.

I then spent three years in South Korea, and there I gained experience teaching children of all ages, as well as university students and business people. I returned to South Africa late in 2007, and I have been a staff member at Wits Language School since 2008.

My roles include teaching general English to intermediate, upper-intermediate and advanced level students, as well as preparing students for IELTS examinations.

I received my BA degree in English and French literature from UNISA in 2007, and went on to complete the TESOL course at Wits.

In 2011 I did an online Language Awareness Course through International House World Office. I have been teaching EFL students of various levels in South Africa for the past three years.

In my free time I enjoy reading and writing, hiking and playing squash.


English for Professional and Social Purposes

The Professional and Social English course runs in conjunction with the six levels offered in every EFL course.  If you have completed Level 4, Level 5 or Level 6 and would like to continue with English, then this is the course for you.  

The Professional and Social English course is appropriate for upper-intermediate level as well as advanced level students. The course will focus on fluency i.e. using English in different social contexts as well as in the corporate and working environment.
