Soulinnara Ratanavong

After graduating from Lao American College (LAC), Higher Diploma in the Art of English, Soulinnara left to France to continue her graduate studies in Hospitality Management at Academie Internationale de Management (AIM). She spent another 2 years in Paris to study Civilization and French Language for Professional and Business Purpose. When Soulinnara returned back to Laos, she engaged working as a freelance consultant in the area of Hotel and Tourism and joined Agoda for one year before becoming a core team teacher/trainer at Lao National Institute of Tourism and Hospitality (Lanith), and the Lao American College as a part-time teacher for beginner and Professional Communication. Since Soulinnara was young, she always thought that teaching is a difficult and boring profession, but finally she realized that it is very interesting. Both teachers and students constantly process a lot of information, with frequent exchange between them. Soulinnara has met and interacted with different kinds of people especially teenagers who help her to understand more about their attitudes and points of view. These interactions help her to adapt the teaching/sharing style to meet the need of young people and to get closer to them. She is glad that some of her lessons and experiences could help students to explore new information and knowledge. [+]
