About this blog

Hi everyone, my name is Chris, and I’m from London, but over the last 18 years I have been living and working in Tokyo teaching English and drama to a variety of ages and levels of students. I have taught elementary, junior, senior and university level and I have run several workshops for students and adults. What I have learned from this experience is that students want to use English in an active, creative and productive way. This website to documents some of my work and provides teachers with ideas for their own classrooms.

Please take a look at the ideas and activities on this site. The ‘Games’ sections contains games, old and new, for you to enjoy using in your classroom, and the ‘Beyond’ section contains ideas reflections on theatre and education in Japan and elsewhere. Pop in when you get a moment and check out any updates!
