Debra Scott: English communication and accent coach for second language speakers

Born in Oregon, she grew up fascinated by accents and curious about learning languages. At age 15 she went to Costa Rica to live with a family and went home fluent in Spanish. 

Debra pursued advanced degrees in Languages and Education and began her career teaching Spanish at the University of Oregon. She was then selected to go to Spain on exchange, where she taught English at the University of Seville.

Debra has taught English for many years on all levels, managing her own language school as well as serving in public and private schools and businesses. Her philosophy is that learning should be fun and practical for everyday life. For kids, playing games and singing are the best ways to learn structures in such a way that learners don't realize they are practicing grammar, and adults can enjoy singing too!
