I got my first teaching job in 1984, working at a large boys secondary school in El Obeid, Sudan. This experience made it very clear to me that there's a lot more to teaching English than just being able to speak the language! I returned to Britain and did a very inspiring teacher training course at Pilgrims, Canterbury. I then went on to teach in Turkey, and then Brazil, and then Spain, with a further teacher training course at International House, London, and finally a masters course in Teaching English with Aston University.
My book writing career began during my time in Brazil, with the publication of Pronunciation Games. I followed up with another photocopiable resource book Singing Grammar. After that, I started writing course books and other study materials, including English Pronunciation in Use, Pen Pictures and the four-level adult course English Result. These last two titles were written in collaboration with Annie McDonald.
