I can only do this job and travel because there are people who want to study my language. If I have no students I have to stay in England and work in an office. Maybe a school there? Well no, I prefer to travel the world and meet some of its great people . I have made friends in Italy, Kyrgyzstan, Egypt and now Kazakhstan, and my students have always been really nice and friendly.
I can also say that lots of my students have learned English very well with me, and I think I know some very good ways to teach English. So Iíve decided to include a page for students on my website.
There is not a lot here, Iím sorry. But here are some of my grammar files if they can help you a bit. And there are some tips too. And a spreadsheet with links to a lot of websites. That is probably the most useful thing on the page at the moment.
If you have any ideas for this page you can email me.
