Megan Roderick

I live in Athens but am originally from Cardiff and am an experienced teacher and teacher trainer as well as ELT materials writer.

Talking to someone the other day about what I do for a living – freelance writing for ELT – I found myself saying that I enjoyed my job and always found inspiration in each new writing project. And that is true. One thing I always try to do in my writing is to instill ‘life’ into everything, whether it be a grammar exercise or a Speaking task. To my mind, sentences and texts can either be lifeless and dull or have that certain spark of intrinsic interest or humour that will catch the students’ attention and make the learning process more enjoyable.

Both theory and practice have informed my writing, since I was a teacher for many years – firstly of French and then of English – then the MEd TEFL I did a bit later on in life really broadened my horizons and gave me that theoretical background into which I could slot my writing.

The great thing about teaching a language – or writing books to be used for that purpose – is that the whole process goes beyond merely a combination of words, sounds and grammatical elements. We can explore interesting topics, we can open our students’ minds to new ideas through the medium of the new language – and that is hopefully what we can call true ‘education’!
