Hello! My name is Robyn. I am from Cape Town, South Africa and I am 42 years old. For many years I have specialized in education as I like helping people to learn. Teaching is not only my profession but also my hobby. In addition to this I like spending time with my family and two children, exploring the outdoors, etc. We enjoy travelling and being active with a variety of different sports activities. English is our home language, but we’re currently tri-lingual, as we speak German and Bulgarian too. I also still remember some Afrikaans from my earlier years. If I had more time, I’d like to pursue my interest in writing short fiction stories, and improve my veggie gardening skills.
Hi, Robyn Welcome to Chatterbug What language are you going to tutor?
Hi Sandra, I’m going to tutor English.
Hallo Alison, here is a note to the reader. I‘ll use the example in our lesson today.
Thank you, Klaus. It was an interesting lesson, and you told lots of great stories.
Welcome, Robyn! What a nice bio, what kind of veggies do you grow in your garden?
Hi JoAnn, our favourites are tomato, cucumber, beetroot, potato and raspberry. I am also preparing baby spinach. Next year I’d like to try asparagus The carrots are somehow unsuccessful, although that would be my next goal, as well as fresh coriander - I love to use it when cooking.
Are you also a veggie gardener?
Amazing! Growing asparagus must be quite the task. Just from watching the asparagus fields in Germany it seems pretty involving.
No, I’m just a house-plant collector for now but have always been interested in gardening!
Hi Robyn ! Nice to have you here ! Where in Switzerland do you live ? I grew up very close to the borders between Germany - Switzerland and France ( das Dreiländereck) only some minutes away from Basel
Hi Yasmin, we’re sort of in the centre, if you make a triangle between Bern, Basel and Zurich, our biggest town nearby is Olten.
hello fellow Switzerland tutor!!
