"I have been involved in language teaching for the past 30 years – as a teacher, editor and writer. After completing my degree at the University of Cape Town, I moved from teaching English as a first and second language, to EFL – first in the UK and then in Turkey, where I taught students of all ages and levels. On my return to the UK I taught at a language school and obtained my RSA Diploma in TEFL. I then entered the publishing industry as an ELT editor. Since becoming a freelance writer some 15 years ago, I have written several course books and a range of supplementary materials for adults, teenagers and young learners. I enjoy writing skills material, and have a particular interest in improving students' speaking skills through interesting, relevant and fun activities. I recently obtained my Post-graduate Certificate in Teaching ESOL at the Institute of Education, London, and divide my time between writing
and teaching ESOL – the perfect balance !"
