Another Aston student makes an impression…

Karina Burrowes wasn’t the only Aston placement student featured in a German local newspaper. Bethany Stanney, who was interviewed for the paper’s “Faces & Stories” section, is currently working as an English language assistant in a Realschule in Walsrode, a small town in Lower Saxony.

She says she loves teaching the students about things that aren’t in their schoolbooks; as a native speaker, she is able to teach them those “small words” that make a language authentic. When she brought her Blackpool school uniform to class, it led to a spirited discussion about the pros and cons of uniforms; and students who do exceptionally well are rewarded with “Blackpool rock”, a sweet delicacy from Beth’s home town.
