A bit about me...

I work as a consultant in secondary education, teaching English and technology. I also teach English and intercultural competence in industry. I love my job, believe in lifetime learning and hate teachers who aren't interested in developing themselves.

Are the Beatles good for English teaching?

Posted on January 31, 2010 at 8:11am 3 Comments

I often get customers who want to know what lines from Beatles songs mean. Does anyone else get this? Some of their later stuff can be quite challenging!

On the one hand, it's good that customers have found a hook to hang their interest in the language on. But is it always a good idea to use song texts?

Am spending the afternoon actively listening to John, Paul, Ringo and George in the hope of finding some answers.

Top tips to increase your productivity through your study room

We’re stuck at home with limited access to many public spaces outdoors, including libraries, co-working spaces and educational institutions. These are just some examples of study areas you may utilise when you need a change in scenery to keep yourself engaged whilst you’re studying. Now, we’re being forced within the four walls of our home which means creating a workspace or room has never been more important. The learning environment that students work in can have a major impact on…See More
