My name’s Anthony Gaughan and I work as an English Language Teacher and Teacher-Trainer in Hamburg, Germany. I started working in ELT in 1995 and have worked in the UK and Germany, with short trips to Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia.
These days, I mostly work as a trainer and a Cambridge ESOL appointed Assessor for the CELTA award. I hold Qualified Teacher Status (PGCE-QTS) in the UK state education system, Cambridge ESOL DELTA, a BA in English Language and Literature, and I am currently working on my dissertation for an MA in Applied Linguistics and ELT.
I am especially interested in unplugged approaches such as DOGME ELT as well as use of technology. As time goes on, I realise more and more that what I am searching for in teaching – and in life – is simplicity.
