My teaching career started with a PGCE qualification from Jordanhill College, Glasgow, in English literature and language. I then taught in secondary schools in Scotland for three years before moving to Peru and developing an interest in foreign and second language teaching and learning. I gained a position as Head of department in the English section of a primary and secondary school in Lima. I worked in contact with other British and American schools in Lima, and also with the British Council. I returned to Scotland in 1994 and completed my Master's degree in Applied Linguistics. I had various English language teaching posts in Edinburgh, including IALS, Telford College, Jewel and Esk Valley College and Heriot-Watt University. I later left Edinburgh to work in South Korea as a university lecturer, and then returned to Edinburgh and took up various posts again. I joined Moray House Institute of Education as Director of Studies for the English Language Centre, and was seconded to MPIK (in Kuala Lumpur) on a joint Malyasian-UK teacher training programme at the time of the merger of Moray House with the University of Edinburgh (Moray House then became the Faculty of Education, and then later changed name again to the Moray House School of Education). I returned to the UK in 1999 to continue working as a lecturer in TESOL, literature and language, teaching on both undergraduate and post-graduate programmes.
