I´m an Australian currently living in the Czech Republic. I teach mostly upper-intermediate & advanced students, so most of my worksheets are for conversation with grammar embedded. I´ve been teaching English since 2008 and I´m hoping to stick with it for a long time yet, and see many countries around the world. All feedback will be very much appreciated :D
