About Me

Hi all,

I just read my own ‘About’ section for the first time in a few years and thought I should at least update what continent I was on.

Anyways, my name is still Ben Naismith and I’m a language learner (poor Spanish, worse French) and teacher. I’ve been teaching music and English since 2000, in Toronto, Thailand, Costa Rica, Dubai, and now Vancouver.  At the moment I’m doing mostly teacher training (CELTA), but happy as long as work involves language somehow.

I originally thought I’d start this blog to get into the habit of writing more and maybe to help clarify my own thoughts on one or two things.  Turns out writing regularly was not a habit I ever managed to get into although I still have vague ambitions of blogging more if I ever finish my MSc.

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you find something we can argue about.

    Hi Ben,
    Just came across your blog. It looks like it’s gonna be a good read!
    I posted a note on the Dogme Facebook page to let others know you’re interested in it, hope it’s alright, I think the more we share the farther we go. Feel free to post any new posts on the same page, i don’t know if you’re there already but here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/reservoirdogme

    Hi, Ben! I run a blog called Rethinking Complexity for Saybrook University, and I was wondering if I could use the ‘ambiguity’ picture from this blog post (http://bit.ly/12yOoID) to illustrate a post one of my bloggers wrote about the topic. Here’s a link to our site: http://www.saybrook.edu/rethinkingcomplexity/ and please let me know if you have any other questions.

      Hi Jess, thanks for stopping by. Interesting to see how tolerance for ambiguity is developed in other fields. To be honest, the picture isn’t mine and just came up on a random google image search. Poor citing on my part which I’ll fix up soon.
