about Over the last 23 years I’ve been a Cambridge Delta tutor, teacher trainer, teacher trainer trainer, senior teacher, (assistant) director of studies, head of self-access centre, social programme organiser, full-time ELT writer/ editor and DoS in Turkey, Thailand, UK, Spain, Greece, Italy, Japan and Korea. I’ve now settled down in Japan and decided I just prefer being a plain old English teacher, so this blog was set up in 2007 to help motivate and entertain myself through that new steady life. If I can also help other people, that’s nice too. As well as blog entries about everything TEFL, there are well over 2000 worksheets on all kinds of topics and for various textbooks, plus links to my hundreds of articles on all things ELT– see the drop-down menus under the photo at the top of the page for all of these.

9 underground sites in Europe People have inhabited Europe for thousands of years, building new empires atop old ones. That’s precisely why the continent is such a fascinating place for underground exploration—travelers can look into the past through well-preserved subterranean cities, hideouts, and tombs. Out of sight and out of mind, some of the oldest sites were lost to humanity for centuries before being rediscovered by accident. Ice Age and Neanderthal cave shelters throughout Spain and France were still being discovered by shepherds, farmers, and hunters as recently as the mid-1900s. It’s said the Basilica Cistern in Istanbul—built during the early Roman Empire and then forgotten—was rediscovered a thousand years later when a visiting scholar learned nearby residents could pull water and catch fish through their floorboards. From wartime bunkers to historic mines, these European sites will make you want to head underground.
