About the Author:

Paul Dummett is currently the Director of e@o online learning ltd. His career in EFL started in 1986 as a teacher of General English. It quickly developed with an interest in task-based teaching and ESP and for the last 10 years has worked on writing and delivering courses to professionals. He is the author of various skills and business English titles.

John Hughes has taught for over 15 years and prepared students for BEC at all three levels. He has run Business English departments in Poland and Italy and organised teacher training courses including preparation for The LCCIEB Further Certificate for Teachers of Business English examination. He has written a number of course books for students and resource books for teachers as well as numerous articles for publications such as The Guardian Weekly. Currently, he is involved in the writing and development of online materials for training teachers.

Helen Stephenson has worked in ELT in a variety of settings. Initially teaching adults in mainly ESP and EAP settings, she also became interested in teaching teenagers after stints in the UK and Portugal during her PGCE. She spent six years in Africa, during which time she completed her M Ed TESOL, and had the opportunity to write and deliver the new English course for a state school system and provide training for new state school teachers. Also during this time she became a training coordinator for Voice of America's locally employed technical and administrative staff. This role involved not only teaching English but also a certain amount of inter-cultural relations! After a bit of travelling and teaching MBA students in Azerbaijan, she settled in Catalonia and worked as academic coordinator at the British Council. She currently teaches at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, Barcelona where she has also been involved in developing and writing the English courses. Her published courses include A+ for Bachillerato, Success with BEC (Preliminary) and Total Business 1. Helen is the author of the lower secondary course English Explorer (1 - 4) and has written the Beginner and Intermediate levels of the adult learner course Life, both titles published by National Geographic Learning. Helen lives in the 'wilds' of Catalonia and spends a lot of time trying to see interesting birds and attemping to photograph them. Yoga is also a key element in her life. With kids and grandchildren visiting often, the barbecue is always on the go (humanely-reared creatures only, of course) and the camera is always at the ready.

About the Author:

My career in ELT began in Oxford in 1987, first as a teacher, then DoS, then Vice principal of Godmer House School of English. In 1996, I set up my own school teaching English to professionals which I ran for 10 years, giving it up in 2006 to concentrate on writing full-time. My interests have always centred around needs-based learning: from task-based learning for general English students through business English teaching to specialised ESP courses. As a teacher and a writer, my aim is to develop materials that are meaningful and thought-provoking - that offer more than just language learning. I seek out projects that offer this possibility. This was what led me to work with National Geographic on the adult series, LIFE. My publications include: Success with BEC (Summertown 2008), Energy English (Cengage 2010) and LIFE (National Geographic Learning (2012). I live in Oxford with my wife (and children when they come home). I love exercise (tennis, yoga, swimming, cycling and walking), reading and travel and I like to combine all three as often as I can. paragraph here

John Hughes has worked in ELT for twenty years as a teacher, teacher trainer and director of studies. Currently, he runs training courses, both face-to-face and online. He is also an author with over 20 ELT books. His books for Cengage Learning and National Geographic Learning include Spotlight on FCE, Practical Grammar, Total Business and the new six-level National Geographic course for adult learners called Life.

Helen Stephenson first taught business English in the 1980s. She has written in-house training courses and a course for upper-secondary students. She teaches at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.
