Leo Selivan

has been involved in ELT for more than 13 years in all sorts of roles: teacher, examiner, teacher trainer, senior teacher and materials developer – mainly with the British Council in Tel Aviv but also Cyprus and Turkey.  In recent years, teacher training missions have taken him to Azerbaijan, Armenia, Italy and other countries in the region where he had a chance to meet, work with and learn from some wonderful and dedicated teachers and teacher trainers.
Currently he is a lecturer giving courses to pre-service and in-service teachers in Second Language Acquisition (SLA), teaching methodology, vocabulary teaching and using technology in the classroom (the latter by demand rather than by choice).
His other interests include corpus linguistics, lexical approaches to language teaching and using video in the classroom – the topics he has written articles and materials on for the British Council and BBC’s Teaching English website. He is also the author of a highly successful blog, Leoxicon (http://leoxicon.blogspot.com).  
You can often see Leo present at conferences in Israel (ETAI), Europe (IATEFLTESOL France, IATEFL Poland, TESOL Italy) and online (VRT, TOBELTA)
