Katy Simpson

Katy Simpson is a teacher and materials writer currently based in Japan. She has worked in the UK, Thailand, and Dubai, where she developed an interest in the use of English as a Lingua Franca.  She co-authors a blog about English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) pronunciation, at elfpron.wordpress.com, which aims to bridge the gap between research and the classroom. Katy has spoken about ELF pronunciation at conferences around the world, including a presentation for the British Council Seminar Series. In 2016, she set up an online school aimed at students who use English internationally, at myenglishvoice.com, which publishes weekly self-study materials aimed at developing students’ listening and pronunciation skills. My English Voice is a finalist in the 2017 ELTons for Innovation in Learner Resources.
