  • Thanks for inviting me – Petros, Eduard (who I seem to have met already) I’d like to introduce our EFL course, Quick Smart English and its origins, perhaps by introducing myself I’ve been in language publishing – mainly EFL - for over 30 years My books are published in about 50 countries A few years ago I sold my original company, Chancerel to Ernst Klett Verlag, one of the two main educational publishers in Germany It has been my good fortune to continue working with EFL authors and publishers in many places since then.
  • It is the skills material that seems to be attracting most attention Also the CLIL element that MT will speak about
  • Ken and Mary – introduce themselves Three other authors in the Series. They represent a wide range of experience – beyond that of many UK-based EFL writers
  • Separate Workbooks but in pack In some countries printed both together
