It’s always wonderful when the people who are under your care manage to accomplish great feats that are both unlikely and also wonderful.

For many reasons, I am fortunate to be confronted with this on a day-to-day basis and today, I was very lucky to see this happen amongst one of my students in my live online classes, with hopefully many more to come in the future as well for the October/November 2023 IGCSE First Language English exams once again.

Even as I write this, I’m conscious that I cannot be entirely responsible for this incredible outcome, as I think that the success of any person is the result of a complex of different factors.

Even those of you out there who have access to the different resources on this page and otherwise will probably succeed through your efforts and I can only claim responsibility for an incidental part of your successes.

Still, it was wonderful to see one of the students in my life class, and with whom I’d worked assiduously, become able to accomplish such success and in such an overwhelming way along the way; it was something I was very happy to see, and while the work is its own reward, I am like any other person a human with my own emotions, my own joys, my own gratitude to people for pushing themselves to go beyond the boundaries.

If you’d be interested to work together with me on First Language English, don’t hesitate to drop me a comment with your details, and I’d be overjoyed to drop you a message!

If you’d like to just gain access to the resources that I’ve compiled over the course of time for this subject, then feel free to obtain a premium membership as you browse through the different guides and resources that are available here.

Thank you all, and I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Learning English is often thought of as something daunting, a chore, an annoyance maybe, especially if you’ve come from a background where your first language isn’t English, but you’ve been forced to take this accursed paper because you need it for a scholarship, a university replacement, or just because your […]
