I’ve published numerous textbooks, including exam material, adult and secondary courses, as well as radio and television programmes for the BBC.

I’ve been closely involved in both digital versions of my textbooks series, working with YDP (Young Digital Planet, Poland) as well as in newly originated material with the BBC.

My recent work has included secondary courses for Poland, Greece and Turkey, Palestine and China, as well as working as series editor for adult learners, and preparing a monolingual phrasebook.

I have experience of working with large organizations, analyzing their requirements, and finding pragmatic solutions. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/simon-greenall/13/1b/5a1
