Lynnette Ketchell


Lynnette has worked for over 25 years as a language teacher in a variety of school settings. She has been Head of German in a large academy and, until recently, was Head of Languages in a school in the North West of England. 


Lynnette is an advocate of using technology to help in all aspects of learning languages and enjoys incorporating this into her lessons. She enjoys building confidence in learners and believes that grammar can be fun but is also key for achieving success in languages.


A fascination with the more recent history of Germany means frequent trips to Berlin to visit places like the Stasi and DDR museums. Lynnette used to live in Austria and also spends time using her languages in the South of France and Lanzarote.


She has been a German and French examiner for over 20 years on a variety of examination papers and is currently a Principal Examiner at Pearson and an examiner at AQA.


Lynnette tutors German and French for The Language Locker.
