James M. Taylor
I have taught English to adults and teenagers in Brazil, South Korea, Belgium and Costa Rica since 2007. I am currently specialising in bespoke one-to-one lessons for business and exam students.
In August 2018, I self-published my first ebook, entitled “How Was Your Weekend? 1001 Discussion Questions To Use With Your EFL/ESL Students” and I wrote ‘Our Languages’. my first coursebook series, for FTD Education in Brazil with Bruno Andrade. In 2019, I launched the Raise Up! Project with Ilá Coimbra, seeking to encourage greater diversity in ELT materials.
I am also a podcast consultant, including the ELTON nominated TEFL Commute podcast, IATEFL TDSIG’s Developod, and Seven Skills For The Future.
I am a former President and a co-founder of BELTA, the Belgian English Language Teachers Association. Currently I am Second-Vice President of BRAZ-TESOL Brasília and a committee member of IATEFL TDSIG.
In 2010, I started my blog, theteacherjames.com, on which I have continued to share lesson materials and opinion pieces. I am a very active member of the ELT community and regular present at conferences, both online and offline.
