I’m an ELT materials writer/content coordinator for the British Council. I’m based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In many ways I’ve had a similar path towards materials writing as many other ELT writers; becoming involved in teacher training before making a move into full-time content development.
I worked in Spain, Italy, France, Hungary, Japan, Vietnam and Morocco before arriving in Malaysia six years ago. I’ve been lucky enough to work on several Celta courses as well as being a local Delta tutor in the last year. Since joining the British Council, in 2008, I’ve become more involved in online learning. I’ve delivered Celta and TKT online, as well as being involved in a large project in Malaysia to help improve the language ability of local state school teachers.
I have an obvious interest in materials developments, as well as teacher training, educational technology and general ELT. All views here are my own.
