At the IATEFL last Monday 1st April, I met Andy Cowle who has been working in the English Language world for over 20 years and I had a really interesting conversation with him.
It was great to hear about teaching methods and materials from a different perspective as Andy has not only the experience of being a language trainer but also he is a specialist in publishing and provides talks and workshops for companies in the ELT sector, as well as presentations training for those in any publishing field.
We also explored a little the aspect of coaching.
Join me and discover what we said :)
Andy Cowle studied German and English Linguistics at the University of Newcastle and qualified as an English teacher in 1989.
Since then he has taught all ages and levels of English students, mostly in Germany and the U.K. and has worked in the field of English Language Teaching publishing with many companies in over 40 countries.
He is a business development consultant and international conference speaker, focusing on motivating teachers and closing the gap between the classroom and the real and changing world of English.
He grew up on Merseyside and lives with his family in Glasgow in Scotland.
