About Me

My name is David and I'm a university lecturer who currently works in China. I have been teaching IELTS for seven years and I'm trying to build a website which makes IELTS fun to learn. Let's face it, IELTS is stressful and it can be boring, but it doesn't have to be! TED talks are a free and fun way to practice your English, and I'm trying to create as many useful lessons as possible that are built around these wonderful resources.
