My name is Phil Longwell.  I live in the United Kingdom. I am also known online as ‘Teacher Phili’ which was a nickname that some children in a Tanzanian orphanage called me and it stuck.  It has been my Twitter handle since 2009.  I have been an English language teacher since 2006.  I currently work for Norfolk County Council / Adult Learning as an ESOL teacher and offer a ‘Learn English Through Filmmaking’ class at ICS English, Norwich.   I have been employed by INTO UEA on their summer presessional programmes.  I am also a freelance English language tutor offering my services in the county of Norfolk, teaching face to face and online.  I am the current webmaster of the IATEFL Learning Technologies Special Interest Group and carry out promotional work for Teacher Training Videos.

This WordPress site is my space to write about my experiences in English Language Teaching, conferences, webinars, ELTchat summaries, reflections and a place to showcase some of the films that I have created (2006-19).  It also acts as my personal and public blog.
