The Author...

Phil Biggerton has been teaching English in Europe and Asia since 1992 and in this time has taught Taiwanese, Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Indonesian, Saudi Arabian, Nepalese, Iranian, Polish, French, German, Russian and Spanish students. In the last 10 years he has specialised in IELTS and for the last three years he has taught English for Academic Purposes (EAP) presessional courses at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom. He also trained as an IELTS examiner and has worked for the British Council in Taipei, Taiwan as an examiner. He has been responsible for teaching reading, writing, listening and speaking examination techniques for the IELTS test and preparing new IELTS practice material. In addition, he has also prepared and conducted placement tests for new students and helped to train new IELTS teachers.

In recent years, he has focused on developing English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses for students who have passed the IELTS test and are waiting to travel abroad to study. The aim of each program is to prepare students for a more intensive learning environment where reading, writing, listening and speaking skills need to be further improved. Study and note taking skills, time management, planning, researching, organising, re-writing, proof-reading paraphrasing, summarising, developing and presenting arguments and the avoidance of plagiarism are some of the aspects that are stressed.

He is now involved in teaching Korean students both general English and IELTS, proofreading medical papers and case reports for doctors in Taiwan and is now in the process of writing IELTS - The Complete Guide to Reading.
