Hi. I’m Laura. Over the years, I’ve worked as a teacher, teacher trainer and most recently as an ELT research manager for a major publisher. I’m also an avid language learner. I hold a BA in Linguistics, CELTA and Delta, and an MA in ELT & Applied Linguistics.
I recently co-authored an ebook on How to Write Pronunciation Activities with my colleague Katy Simpson, and I frequently attend and present at events around the world and online (see ‘Presentations and Publications’). I also co-author (with Katy Simpson) ELFpron, a website full of information and resources for teaching pronunciation and listening skills for English as a Lingua Franca.
I’m taking 2018 off as a year of exploration, including ELT and non-ELT interests. I’m available for freelance consultancy and training, so feel free to get in touch via the form below.
