After leaving Australia, David worked and studied in the UK. On completion of his studies, he moved to Germany to teach English as a foreign language and to pursue his interest in learning languages. In 2007 he took up permanent residence in the Czech Republic and furthered his pedagogical qualifications with the DELTA while working for the British Council. He then deepened his knowledge of linguistics with an MA and began teaching in an 8-year Gymnazium, Jaroslav Seifert, in Prague. He now heads the ESL programme at Novy PORG.
In his spare time David enjoys hiking and cycling along the copious trails here in the Czech Republic, playing the piano, and just spending time with his family and friends.
