I have been working in the EFL sector for over two decades and half of that has been working with international students in higher education in the UK. I have also worked within EFL abroad, in countries such as Japan, Colombia, India, Bulgaria and Estonia. 


During my time in EFL I have helped a range of language students to reach their objectives from business and professional goals to children in specialist schools and students wishing to migrate to English speaking countries. I have also been involved in a number of consultancies from language acquisition within a Japanese automotive company in the UK to integration of the bank of Estonia in the EU.

Second Language acquisition in young learners and adults arriving in the UK for the first time.
