I am a DELTA qualified English as a foreign language teacher, teacher trainer and materials writer currently based in Brazil. I have taught English to adults and teenagers in Brazil, South Korea, Belgium and Costa Rica since 2007. I am currently specialising in bespoke one-to-one lessons online for business and exam students. In August 2018, I self-published my first ebook, entitled "How Was Your Weekend? 1001 Discussion Questions To Use With Your EFL/ESL Students".
I am also a podcast producer, including the ELTON nominated TEFL Commute podcast. I am a former President and a co-founder of BELTA, the Belgian English Language Teachers Association, and current Second-Vice President of BRAZ-TESOL Brasília and BRAZ-TESOL BESIG. In 2010, I started my blog, www.theteacherjames.com, on which I have continued to share lesson materials and opinion pieces.
I am a very active member of the ELT community and regular present at conferences, both online and offline.
Have you ever noticed that you usually ask your students the same questions over and over again? Usually about their weekends? I did, so I decided to write this book so it never happened again. With "How Was Your Weekend? 1001 Discussion Questions To Use With Your EFL/ESL Students" boring classroom conversations are now a thing of the past!
