I’ve come up with a few ideas that I wish to test and build upon. And that’s the reason for this little project.

I’ve worked in the field of education for donkey’s years. Done all sorts of things. But in the last couple of decades (decades!) got involved in helping people learn English.

The conventional approach doesn’t work very well. Heck, it didn’t work well for me when it came to studying Japanese.

If I, a poor student, could figure out how to master what many say is the world’s toughest language, then that must make me a better teacher.

  1. I should probably have ended this with the word 'autodidact' instead of 'teacher'. Coincidentally, I'm currently in the middle of a 7-week spell of teaching summer-school English.
