We met Ingrid while she was giving lessons and we were impressed by her approach. Teaching from a practical point of view, so people can enhance their talent while working more easily due to the freedom of communication.
Ingrid has substantial experience in working with people at a distance from the labor market. She works for other companies with a similar background. On 20 September 2022, she started working together with us.
When people face daily work activities, they need to be able to conversate freely, know the terms at work, and ask questions that will support them in their work and development. However, that cannot be achieved without a level of basic language understanding.
“It is a big challenge for people to start speaking when they are afraid to make mistakes. A way to work around that is by talking to them independently so they can practice one-on-one and then bring that sense of comfort during the course and outside in public.” – Ingrid
“We now focus on having conversations with everyone for one hour before starting the course. This way, we get to talk about their leisure activities and support them in any other way they need help, be it with the doctor or legal appointments, or just having someone to practice small talk with.”
Her main objective is to create a state of comfort with their environment, themselves, and each other while working.
“I believe in teaching people how to build patience with themselves and their progress and resilience while making mistakes,” Ingrid lets us know while smiling and looking proud at all the people in the room she was teaching.
“It is beautiful to see how someone can improve their life so much so that they can grow and be free, and communication is a key aspect for it.”
