Who makes EnglishZine?

My name’s Wyn. I’m a British teacher of English. I’ve been teaching English for more than 20 years. I’ve worked at schools in Japan, Poland and South Korea.

Now living in a small town near Oxford, I teach one-to-one and group English lessons online. I provide writing correction and proofreading services for international students. I also write articles for magazines and websites.

I started EnglishZine to encourage my students to read because reading is a great way to improve your English. The website is now visited by learners of English from all over the world.

How often is there something new on EnglishZine?

I update EnglishZine every Friday. If you want better English, visit the website every week and read a new article or do a quiz.

If you want to receive monthly emails with study tips, competitions and information about new things, subscribe to the newsletter.

You can also follow EnglishZine on FaceBook, Twitter or Instagram.
