Having grown up in Saudi Arabia for eleven years, I am one of those Indians who have been fortunate to be exposed to Western Culture and expansive, global ideas since childhood. I grew up with and around English, playing video games since the introduction of 386 and 486DX personal computers, reading science fiction and fantasy stories, and attending the Indian International School, where I learnt everything with an English medium in an English environment.
I am a professional English language trainer, who has conducted training seminars, corporate workshops, and one-on-one training sessions with professionals, students, hobbyists, and English enthusiasts the world-over. I have trained Indians, Japanese, Taiwanese, South Koreans, Thai, Russians, Brazilians, and even Japanese-Americans in the English language. I have been a Publisher and an Editor, helping a publishing house release over one hundred e-books from the manuscript to the final release publication.
I am a global citizen and most importantly, a good listener. Speak to me and let's share our interest in utilising English. Let's become globally enabled together.
