Over the last 23 years I’ve been a Cambridge Delta tutor, teacher trainer, teacher trainer trainer, senior teacher, (assistant) director of studies, head of self-access centre, social programme organiser, full-time ELT writer/ 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 well over 2000 worksheets on all kinds of topics and for various textbooks, plus links to my hundreds of articles on all things ELT– see the drop-down menus under the photo at the top of the page for all of these.
I have also written two e-books, which as well as hopefully being very useful and a good model for ELT materials on other topics will help support me in writing more in the future:
Books on meetings, negotiating, IELTS, emailing, presentations, travel English, etc also coming up if I can sell enough copies of those.
I also write a reasonably popular blog about Japan and three almost totally ignored ones on the same topic:
Tips for Brits in Tokyo: https://tipsbritstokyo.wordpress.com/
Kanto with kids: https://kantowithkids.wordpress.com/
If you like anything I do and would like to thank me and/ or help me do more, please support TEFLtastic.
