My name is John McSherry. I am from London and I have been teaching English for 30 years. I took CELTA in 1992 and parts 1 and 3 of DELTA in 2011. I like to teach by using practical examples rather than theoretical grammar. I place more emphasis on functional language and communicative value. To me, pronunciation is the key to all language learning - so you can expect to do a lot of talking and asking questions in my lessons!
