If you’re an English teacher in a foreign country then you understand how hard this job can be. Everyday you’re fighting against the lack of motivation and a 7-seconds-long attention span. Kids are noisy, teenagers don’t care and adults expect miracles. Worst still, a teacher’s job doesn’t end in the classroom, there are demanding parents to please, disorganised managers, last minute changes and countless unpaid hours of lesson preparation.
If that sounds too familiar to you then know that you’re awesome and we’re really, really proud of you. Teaching English abroad is no piece of cake but, just as other demanding professions, it can be incredibly rewarding if you put your heart into it.
We love this job and believe that every teacher has a chance to see what a noble profession it truly is. Whether you’ve been teaching for some time or if you’re just starting, we wish to help you with some of the burden. The ultimate goal of this website is to provide you with countless activities and teaching techniques. No more hours upon hours of designing your next lesson, no more headaches from students’ poor engagement, no more puzzlement over what to teach next. You’re here now and so is everything you need.

Nick is a Polish born ambitious jack of all trades. His English education has started in a summer language school in the USA where, as a teenager, he spent three consecutive summer holidays. This inspired him to go study abroad in the UK which became his life’s dream and a major obsession.
Years later, Nick has fulfilled that dream by graduating from Manchester University with a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Psychology. He married his two life’s passions – the English language and human psychology – by becoming a teacher back in his home country (where he serendipitously met Jack and Sean). After working as an educator for nearly 3 years, and after endless encouragement from Jack, Nick has packed his toothbrush and a pair of underwear and bought a one way ticket to South East Asia where he’s been working as an English teacher since November 2018.
Sean is a retired former member of the military and a filmmaker. After concluding his army servitude (which he never wants to talk about) he went on to have a successful career in filmmaking, winning an award at the Cannes Film Festival being one of his proudest achievements (which he always wants to talk about).
Several years ago Sean took a leap of faith by selling all his things, bidding farewell to his three legged cat Tripod and embarking on his dream adventure of living a nomadic life while traveling the world. This has only partially worked out as so far he still hasn’t left Europe. It did, however, result in the most momentous journey he’s ever undertaken.
Since leaving the UK, Sean has visited Belgium, Germany, Poland, Czekia, Austria, Slovenia, France, Spain and Portugal, where he’s currently enjoying stunning sunsets whilst munching on fruit salads. While travelling Sean works mainly as an online teacher, only occasionally teaching in person.
