Since 2008 I've been living around the world and teaching English as a foreign language. In 2011 I started organizing and leading workshops for English language teachers. Now, with Udemy and the internet, I am embarking on a new project to create English language and teacher training videos so I can share my skills and experience with a wider audience.
