Jon Marks

I’ve been working in ELT since taking a character-buildingly awful job in a desolate agricultural town in the middle of Spain back in 1988.

Since then, I’ve taught and trained teachers in half-a-dozen countries, and in the mid nineties I began contributing material and cartoon illustrations to ELT publications.

I’ve written a number of books, including the Puzzle Time series and IELTS Resource Pack for Delta Publishing. Since 2004 I’ve been a full-time materials developer, working on a wide range of projects including online learning resources.

In the small world that’s ELT, I’m probably best-known for my regular cartoon strip in English Teaching Professional magazine..
