Materials Writer: Communicative English for Syrian Refugees in Turkey (British Council)

I created intermediate / upper intermediate level materials for a major speaking skills programme for Syrian refugees in Turkey with the British Council. My role in this programme was to create high-quality and visually engaging learning materials that met the users’ complex range of needs. Syrian refugees themselves were responsible for delivering the material, so detailed (but straightforward) teachers’ notes were also required. Given the users’ personal histories, the brief also called for sensitivity.


A folder of the B2 (Intermediate) lessons which I developed can be accessed here as pdfs.
