Shannon teaches TOEFL at NYEA. She started teaching ESL in 2004 in South Korea, and has also taught in Chile and a few different New York schools. In addition to being an ESL teacher, Shannon is an ethnomusicologist. That means she studies music in relation to culture—what music means to people and why it’s important. She teaches classes on music in Korea, Japan, Indonesia, Brazil, Chile, Argentina and the US at other schools, and sometimes plays Brazilian and Japanese instruments. Listening to music in English is a great way to learn the language and better understand English-speaking cultures, so listen a lot!
