Hi, I’m Pete. I currently teach in Bangkok.
I’ve taught English in South Korea, Hungary, the UK, Spain, Vietnam, and now Thailand. I’ve got a CELTA, DipTESOL and an MSc in Reading, Language and Cognition. I’ve also just finished a CELTA extension course for teaching young learners.
I’ve created this blog to share ideas, plans, and general ELT-related posts. I’ve taken so many ideas from ELT sites and other blogs in the past, so it’s about time I gave something back!
Most tips and ideas will be aimed at new or less experienced teachers. If you feel you can add to any post, all comments are welcome.
If you would like to write a guest post on this blog, please get in contact!
Thanks for visiting! You can also follow me on Twitter: @eltplanning
