I’ve been a teacher trainer, teacher trainer trainer, senior teacher, assistant director of studies, head of self-access centre, social programme organiser, full-time ELT writer, full-time ELT editor and DoS in Turkey, Thailand, UK, Spain, Greece, Italy, Japan and Korea. I’ve now settled down in Japan and decided I just prefer being a plain old English teacher, so this blog was set up in 2007 to help motivate and entertain myself through that new steady life. If I can also help other people, that’s nice too.
As well as blog entries about everything TEFL, there are worksheets on all kinds of topics and for various textbooks, plus links to my hundreds of articles on all things ELT elsewhere – see the drop-down menus at the top for all of these.
I also write a reasonably popular blog about Japan and three almost totally ignored ones on the same topic:
Tips for Brits in Tokyo: http://tipsbritstokyo.wordpress.com/
Kanto with kids: http://kantowithkids.wordpress.com/
If you’ve no idea where to start on this blog, may I suggest the least pointless of my first 1000 posts?
