Rob Metcalf (right) brought a "considerable amount of experience" teaching English to a new career writing materials for English teachers, one he got into "quite by accident", he tells us...

• Rob Metcalf has lived and taught English in Barcelona since 1988 and works as a materials writer and online tutor for Net Languages.
