Over the past twenty years, Paul Anthony has worked tirelessly with thousands of language learners in the field of English language linguistics and Teaching English as a Foreign Language. During this time, Paul Anthony made full use of neuro linguistic programming in order to assist learners in coming to terms with a second language and the cognitive processes of their neurological mindsets.
Presenting his particular style of teaching to students of all levels and ages from a wide section of society including young people, managers, business executives, medical practitioners, police officers, soldiers and judges, Paul Anthony always sought to instil motivation and positivity into his language learners.
Paul Anthony takes a communicative approach to teaching language and uses NLP suggestibility strategies in order to allow students freedom of thought to imagine they are outside in real life situations, which gets them quickly thinking in the target language promoting rapid response to questions. He has also held educational seminars in Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia and Pakistan. More recently, Paul Anthony participated in a televised Round Table discussion held at Saudi Arabia’s vast Islamic university in Riyadh, where he debated both the positive and negative aspects of education within the kingdom.
Paul Anthony began teaching late in life and took his first TEFL course way back in 1996 at the age of 41 and this was ultimately to lead to his interest in hypnotherapy, in particular neuro linguistic programming and what he saw as the benefits of NLP. He has since taught in England, Spain, Turkey, Mexico, the U.A.E and Saudi Arabia. In addition to teaching communicatively, Paul has also become well-versed in the Direct Method of teaching.
For a couple of years, Paul Anthony worked as Project Manager of the English Language Unit at Al- Baha University in Saudi Arabia’s remote Saraat mountain region, where he was responsible for some 150 English language professors and around 5,000 students from Medical, Arts, Sciences and Engineering faculties.
During his career Paul Anthony gained a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and is now developing courses on the subject. From the linguistic perspective, he has educated people in CAE, IELTS and often made use of his knowledge of NLP to inspire students in their struggles with language acquisition which invariably led to him to supporting students by way of positive therapeutic counselling.
Paul continues to develop courses and teaches in the Middle East.
