With her EFL certificate she was able to fulfil a lifelong ambition to live and work abroad.  First, she lived in Budapest, Hungary and was employed as an EFL teacher of children and adults. She gained her DELTA and after 2 years she moved to another post in Prague, Czech republic, teaching adults and children and also editing the monthly British Council Czech newsletter.  After 4 years she was employed as Young Learner Co-Ordinator in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam where she worked for 2 years, helping to set up courses for young learners as well as teaching adults.

Ruth returned to England in 2006 and worked in Newcastle for 2 years as an ESL teacher for adults.  From 2008 to 2018 she combined her skills teaching children with her language teaching experience and worked as an EAL (English as an Additional Language) teacher in primary schools.  She also gained a diploma in Bilingualism in Education from Birmingham University.  Since September 2018 she has worked as an ESOL teacher in Further Education as well as delivering teacher training for The TEFL Academy.
