Hopefully some useful commentary on teaching English to (mainly) French speakers. I am a teacher based in Paris, France with fourteen years experience (most times that’s not 1 year repeated 14 times :/).

I teach engineering students at university level so naturally posts will have this bias. However I do also teach business English to adults as well as exam preparation for the TOEIC.

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

  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,

  3. Hi mura, I was searching for a last minute reference for my thesis and my search directed me straight to you! thanks

  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

      1. Cool! I’m not planning on going to Glasgow but I will watch some of the online videos that they publish.

  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?
