I'm Paul Fanning, a retired teacher and teacher trainer in the field of English for speakers of other languages (ESOL).
I live in the town of Reading in England, but maintain links with East Africa, where I still have some professional contacts, and Spain, where the eldest of my five children resides.
My main activity in retirement is thinking and writing about learners’ problems in English for Academic Purposes.
I hope that my web site will bring his numerous ideas and insights of the past 40 years to a wider audience of learners and fellow teachers, so that anything of true value in my thinking is not lost.
The word “Guinlist” in the address of the site is an anagram of “linguist”, the word that best sums up his academic orientation.
