Alex Caughey

BA (Hons) German, CELTA,DELTA Masters in Applied Linguistics

About you
I've been an English teacher since the millennium and I've worked in Vienna, Osaka, Singapore and Hong Kong. My hobbies are swimming, soccer (although in England we call it Association Football) and skiing. Japan is the best place in the world for skiing because there are a lot of resorts and the snow conditions are superb.

David Cruse

PGCE, Trinity CERT, DELTA, MA in Applied Linguistics and TEFL

About you
I’ve been teaching English since 2001. I’ve taught mainly in the UK but this is my second time in Japan. I really love it here, especially Tokyo, although it means I’m away from my main hobby – playing the euphonium in a British brass band. In Japan, I’ve replaced euphonium playing with travelling to new places and trying new dishes.
