  • I wanted to share my experience as I think it would be a good one for potential clients of yours to hear about. When I started I know we had a lot of back and forth and I'm really pleased about this and that you made me that deal. £2 bets for 4 weeks with you covering my losses. Looking back now I can't believe I ever doubted you but if I was back in that frame of mind now I'd probably be thinking the same things, I'm just glad you talked me into doing it. £2 bets lead to £5, £10, £20 and so on and now I'm joining you hitting £700 a month with £100 stakes. Me, putting a £100 bet on a horse and not worry too much about the outcome?! Never thought id ever reach that level to be honest.You did this Ben and I cannot thank you enough. 

  4. 4. "Creativity in the context of ELT is recombining known elements in a new and engaging way. For example, borrowing activities and techniques from a very different field and applying them in the language classroom." Jorge Sette (Brazil) "For language learners, I think creativity is about going beyond language for language's sake, and using it as a tool towards making something. For language teachers, I think it's about not being afraid to experiment with the unknown and venture out of your 'safe zone' now and then. Experimentation is the investment, and creativity is the reward when it goes well." Damian Williams (UK) "Creativity is Imagination in action“ Fabiana Casella (Argentina) "Being creative doesn't always mean being original. Sometimes you can give known ideas a new twist. For me being resourceful is also being creative. Dealing with unexpected situations - thinking on your feet." Ela Wassell (Poland)
