Here you can find a collection of short articles on living and working abroad, teaching and lesson plans for ESL and EFL classrooms, living well on a budget, curated reading lists and book reviews, and finally, in hopes of bringing back or reinvigorating family dinners, some topics ripe for dinner table discussion!
I have written on travel, teaching, literature, and the globalization of the English language, and am currently working on a Turkish translation of Tamora Pierce's 'Alanna'. You can read some of my book reviews for the London School of Economics by following the link to the right.
