Lewis Lansford is the co-author of Oil and Gas 1 (part of the Oxford English for Careers series) with D’Arcy Vallance, English for Cabin Crew with Sue Ellis, Tech Talk Intermediate Workbook and an array of other textbooks, teacher’s books, tests, magazine articles and other ELT materials for top educational publishers.
His first English teaching work in Spain in 1989 inspired him to get a Master’s degree in TESOL (University of Arizona, 1991), which led to teaching academic and professional English in the US and Japan.
He moved into publishing full time in 1995 as an editor with Longman Asia in Hong Kong, and has since developed, edited, consulted on, and written materials at all levels for learners around the world. He also has taught materials development to graduate students at the University of Durham.
Though he’s actively involved in publishing for a diverse group of general English learners globally, his passion is ESP.
