About Me

Hello from sunny Sri Lanka! My name's Darren, I'm originally from Portsmouth, UK and I've been teaching English as a foreign language for 9 years. I started in Prague, CZ, teaching business English and then Cambridge Exams PET/FCE. I then moved back to the UK to train international academic students for their IELTS exam. I'm currently teaching in Colombo, Sri Lanka and I would love to hear from you if you would like to learn or improve your English language skills.
