    James Dedman English as a Foreign Language (EFL) Teacher (East London) Picture
    I don't know about you, but when I was at school I was almost permanently bored. Most of my teachers had a brilliant knack of turning everything into something grey and dull. Whether it were Shakespeare, chemical reactions or maths everything seemed to meld into one big heap. The one teacher...

  • What I enjoy about teaching English

    James Dedman IELTS Teacher (East London) Picture
    One of the best things about teaching English is not what the student learns, but what I get to hear about. Engineering, hairdressing, economics etc etc.  My knowledge of haircuts and styles has increased to the point now where I can say rather than being clueless, I am a bit less clueless. In...

    Sky Yao Mandarin Chinese Tutor (Birmingham) Picture
    When I first read the English version of Harry Potter in 13, I found that English is more mysterious than I thought. Like Chinese, it also has a range of vocabularies describing one item, such as facial expression. I would like to invite you to work with me together to explore these amusing...

    Nicholas Parkinson English as a Foreign Language (EFL) Teacher (South East London) Picture

  • What Dyslexia Has To Do With Learning English

    Justin Potter Business English Teacher (Salisbury) Picture
    I have always been fascinated by the way our brains work and how we learn. I really struggled to learn at school yet in later years achieved a Distinction in the Strategic Management module of my MBA. So why is that some people find learning another language quite simple while others really...

    Kim Neal English as a Foreign Language (EFL) Teacher (Kingston upon Thames) Picture
    It has been said that your heart is revealed through the things that you say; your thoughts, dreams, obsessions, desires and regrets all originate in your heart. If I were someone who absolutely loved jazz music, then you would know about it because I wouldn't stop talking about it. When we fall...
