Hopefully some useful commentary on teaching English to (mainly) French speakers. I am a teacher based in Paris, France with sixteen years experience (most times that’s not 1 year repeated 16 times :/).

I used to teach engineering students at university level so naturally most posts will have this bias. I now teach air traffic controllers (general aviation). However I do also teach business English to adults.

Don’t be shy to comment, even if it is to just say hi! Or hook up on Twitter @muranava, Or Mastodon social

  1. Hello Mura,
    I’ve enjoyed reading your blog and subscribed via rss feed. I have deleted my Google + account for privacy reasons. Is there some other way to get your postings? (My twitter account isn’t working.)

  2. Hi Mura,

    I was directed to your blog by Geoff Jordan, he was my MA tutor and he said you know a lot about corpora/concordancers. If you don’t mind, could I contact you by email to ask you a few questions?

    Thanks a lot,

  4. Hi,

    I came across your website through IATEFL Glasgow and I’m exploring it right now. Quite recently I’ve started sharing my worksheets based on TED talks. Check it out if you are interested and I would grateful if you could get back to me if you have some comments about it.
    The website address is: ted4esl.com

  5. Dear Mura Nava,
    I am a Ph.D. student, and I was hoping to get some corpus related advice. Could you please share your email address so that I can send you my query?

  6. Hi Mura! I’m really interested in the Paikeday’book ‘The native speaker is dead!’. I’m a student and need to know how Paikeday’s collegues answered to his questions. I was searching on the web but I can’t find it. thanks!
