Greg Wagstaff is a teacher trainer, academic manager and EFL video content creator based in Seville, Spain. Originally from Cambridge in England, he works as a freelance teacher trainer for both Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment in Spain.  He also works for the Cambridge University Press YouTube channel ‘Learn English with Cambridge’, scripting, editing and starring in videos for English language learners. Greg holds the Cambridge Delta and believes in blending new approaches and technology with traditional proven methods in the classroom, but that ultimately, simply being able to relate to our pupils is the most important element for learning to take place.

In his spare time, Greg is a sports fanatic (above all rugby and cricket) who also loves spending time with his dog Toby or improving his Spanish.

In this talk, we’ll look at how creative thinking and critical thinking can complement each other and provide an ideal background for learning English. Teachers will go away with plenty of practical ideas for their classes.
