Find Your Feet

Learning English, teaching English and discovering Scotland

There is lots to explore

There is lots to explore here, whether you are learning English or teach it, and there is a special focus on Scotland.

FindYourFeet began many years ago when I was still teaching English at the Language Institute of Konstanz University in South Germany. I discovered that the handouts I made for students would disappear from my pinboard like hot cakes. FyF became my storehouse not only for 'handouts' but also for course materials, information on Scotland, and most recently, course concepts for teaching English. I hope you enjoy exploring FyF and find interesting things.

About Me

I thoroughly enjoyed my life of teaching English to students at university, and learnt a lot. Apart from that: I was born in Scotland, have kept my Scottish accent and delighted in introducing students to a more complex Scotland than they ever thought existed.
