Happiest reading a good book, supporting WBA, cycling, antique hunting, playing tennis and indoor hockey (floorball, salibandy, unihockey - call it what you will). Simple guy with simple tastes for the most part.
I am interested in evolutionary psychology and keep a psychology blog (caughtin2minds.blogspot.com) to indulge this hobby. Originally from the UK (one time land of poets & priests but sadly a corporate captured state these days) I aim to live in places further afield in the future, such as Central America perhaps.
English teaching can (sometimes) be fun ...I believe this e-book - The Survival Guide to Teaching EFL - offers a flavour of the possibilities out there for readers interested in exploring new roads.
Describe your desk
laptop, sun through the window on a good day...lots of clutter around me, which I like.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Norwich, UK...not much at all...but did steer me towards more reading to escape the boredom of family life there.
Packed with games, advice and hints, The Survival Guide To Teaching EFL is aimed at new and not so new teachers abroad. It offers strategies for coping in a new country and for keeping your lessons on track. It contains classroom activities that work even without a photocopier - so lessons need never grind to a halt! It also provides career suggestions - for both in and outside of EFL teaching.
