Diane Stevenson, Trainer and Coach
Learning other cultures is exciting. Learning language is not! At least, that is what I thought while going to university. I loved my Malaysian and Chinese friends and I longed to enjoy talking with them in their tongue. But my language classes were inadequate; I learned about the language, but not how to tell stories about my life and share in my friends’ lives! After university, I continued my deep curiosity of other cultures by teaching English as a second language to international students. But my passion really took off when I discovered a natural approach to learning languages that is based on relationships! After many years of teaching international students in the US, I now coach language learners who are headed overseas.
Diane is passionate about coaching anyone learning another language. She is a lead trainer and developer for the PreFLITE workshop, offered by Mosaic Intercultural Solutions, Inc. Diane has an MA in Second Language Education, and has spent hundreds of hours teaching and living with international students from all over the world.
