Learning English the Natural Way with Jack

For All Ages and All Levels--Children, Adults, Professionals, Executives.
I prefer to use the
“Natural Approach” by Stephen Krashen in teaching English.
I do not teach English directly in terms of grammar, syntax, etc.
Rather, I provide topics and content which are interesting and important
and in reading and discussing these English is learned indirectly.
Krashen's research shows English is learned more effectively this way.
I have 18 years experience teaching ages 3 to 65+ English
as well as the Arts, Humanities & Business subjects in English.
In China I taught EFL courses for universities, institutes
and corporations both private and State owned.
I developed and delivered innovative courses incorporating
Personality Type, Learning Styles, and the use of Internet resources.
I created and delivered courses on cultural differences,
management, marketing and organizational behavior
as well as trained trainers to deliver these.
I researched and delivered seminars on
East/West cognitive and cultural differences
for Chinese city governments and universities such as Tsinghua in Beijing.
I taught business courses to Chinese high school graduates
to prepare them to attend universities in Australia.
I worked with clients to prepare them for IELTS and TOFEL examinations
as well as helping students apply and prepare for entering universities
in the U.S.A, U.K. and Canada.
I did executive coaching as a new way of teaching English on top corporate levels.
As a profession editor I worked with businesses
My approach is based on in depth, international scientific research
and consideration for individual and cultural learning differences.
My expertise is in interpersonal communication skills—
I was a former counsellor and educator for organizations
such as Relationships Australia and Palliative Care Queensland.
My strength as a teacher-consultant-coach is to create a learning environment
in which participants feel both challenged and supported.
I subscribe to the two wonderful resources below.
Both are crammed with thousands of articles and planned lessons
on every conceivable topic complete with answers, videos, audios, etc.
