Hello and thank you for your curiosity.
My name is Olivia Price-Bates. I’m a 30-something English teacher from London living in Calabria, on the toe of Italy’s boot, with my husband and two very small but very noisy children. You can read about life in Italy on my other website. I’ve been working in ELT since 2009 and am the ADOS of an AISLi accredited private language school.
This website has been designed as a way to document my exploration into ELT, and also to provide ideas and resources to other teachers. I think the most important way to develop as a teacher is to constantly reflect on your own practice as well as to read up on other people’s observations and lessons learned. So this is my way of reflecting on what I have learned so far. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
