Instructor Biography

Walter Kasmer , EFL university lecturer

I am an EFL lecturer with over 20 years of experience teaching presentations, public speaking, business English and oral English. I have lived and worked in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the longest, Japan. I enjoy traveling and using some technology.

I previously worked in the marketing/promotions field, and thus will be offering business English related courses in the future, as well as general English classes.

I truly believe technology is driving the learning process for all learners and makes material for educating ourselves available at all times. In turn, teachers have access to these same tools and can assist the learning process and make more for more efficient teaching.

    Why I Enjoyed this Course

    Everything was grouped very well into small sections. The quizzes are also very helpful. The course format is also very easily used, with all lectures on one page, and just a button needed to move on to the next lecture. I really appreciate the work that went into this course! i know it’s not easily thrown together, and this has been thought out and planned with students in mind.
