  17. 17. Julie Pratten is originally from the UK, currently living in Turkey. After teaching both business and general English in 20 countries or more, including Brazil, Germany, Lithuania and Paraguay, I entered the world of finance via the Czech Republic, after I designed a series of courses for the Czech National Bank. I have since written several business and finance titles, including ‘Absolute Financial English’, the main course book for the Cambridge ESOL ‘ICFE examination’ and ‘Absolute Financial English’ (Delta). Nowadays I live in Turkey, with my husband, two cats, dogs and chickens. Although I live in a rural setting, just a stone’s throw away from the sea, I provide language consultancy for several financial institutions and deliver courses at the Banks Association of Turkey and the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey. My current interests include developing mobile applications for EAP and recent applications include ‘Brighton Study Kit’ and ‘Academic Flip Words’. I have just set up the independent platform ‘Academic Study Kit’. Currently, I am working on the business English course book ‘Good Business English’; this modular course uses sustainable and ethical business models as vehicles for teaching business English. In my opinion, this is the only way forward. In September I set up Heart ELT, a project aimed at establishing a school for Syrian children living in a refugee camp in Iraq.
