Elizabeth Jane Hodgson Young Learners Teacher

Elizabeth Jane Hodgson

"I enjoy teaching Young Learners, even the lively ones, because it's both challenging and rewarding"


Over the years I've seen young Qataris and children from all over the world improve in leaps and bounds and this is partially due the British Council’s input. 

Elizabeth has taught children in West Africa, Italy, Dubai, England and Qatar. In Britain she trained as a professional teacher, gaining a PGCE and DELTA. She has worked for the British Council for over twenty years.
