I am an English teacher and course book writer for Oxford University Press andLongman Pearson. I teach adults who need English for work, play and travel, so their key goals are to communicate across cultures, build relationships and get things done.
I’m particularly interested in:
• business, technical and professional English
• pragmatics and sociolinguistics – speaking and conversation
• cross cultural issues
• British and American English
I grew up and spent much of my working life in the UK (operating in British English). I’ve also lived in Japan and Algeria, and I’ve delivered workshops for teachers in many different places in Europe, the Far East and South America. For ten years or so I’ve been living in Philadelphia, USA. I teach at the University of Pennsylvania and continue to write course books and training materials.
