- Tell us a little about you.
My name is Jürgen Dünhofen and was born in Cape Town. I lived in Table View for most of my life before embarking on a journey to South Korea where I taught English. I enjoy learning languages, making art and being outdoors.
- Have you taught abroad, if so how was the experience?
Yes, I have! I taught in South Korea for a number of years and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I embrased the new cultural experience and it was there that I discovered my love for teaching. The interaction between students and their desire to learn was a major contributor to take teaching seriously.
- What is the biggest misconception people have about South Africa?
I guess it would be that wild animals roam the streets and that it is a very dangerous place. Cape Town is the most beautiful city in South Africa and it is quite well developed, it has everything that a first world country has to offer. Cape Town has exceptional landscapes, flora and fauna that will leave the traveler in awe of its natural beauty.
- What are the aims of your lessons?
I aim to create a platform for expression and creativity. I create space for open dialogue where language taught is used freely without unnecessary pressure.
