About The Author


My name is Neal, I teach English as a foreign language and run my own teaching, proofreading and editing business. I have lived in eight different countries and have been teaching since the start of 2010. Right now I am exploring the exciting world of teaching English for Academic Purposes.

I created this website as a space to share thoughts and ideas on teaching, travelling and a few of my other interests. I am hoping also to share unique information and pictures of the places I have visited, and hopefully offer advice on various factors.

Although this site is a hobby of mine; a place where I can share my thoughts, experiences and ideas on teaching and travelling, I will endeavour to add more ideas and posts as time goes by. It is always a rewarding experience to share something that others may value from my personal and professional life, and this blog was even shortlisted for a British Council award in November 2017.


My business website can be found here: Neal Hocking Language Services. I love this line of work and am always happy to hear from anyone who wishes to learn a little more about the English language or has a piece of work that needs to be checked or edited (however big or small).

I hope you enjoy my site, and would welcome any feedback or messages at nealhocking@hotmail.co.uk!

Thanks for reading!
