About Andrew David
I studied Classics and trained as an English Language and Classics teacher, at Pembroke College Oxford, Exeter University, International House, and Harrow College of Further Education. I have over thirty years’ experience as an English Language teacher and ESOL Programme Manager in Further Education; and over twenty years’ experience designing and delivering museum tours for English Language students, at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum. At the British Museum I also offer workshops for children on Ancient Greek and Egyptian Life, and I have taught on the Museum’s Iraq Emergency Programme, delivering English Language training for Iraqi Archaeologists. My first Classics teaching was private tuition in 1983, and I have over twenty years’ of Classics teaching experience, in Primary, Secondary and Adult Education. Since 2012 I have been a Tutor of Classics at City Lit, where I currently teach Latin and Greek courses on-line, and face-to-face at the British Museum: recent specialist courses include ‘Learning Latin through Latin’ (by the Direct Method), and Greek Accentuation. Publishing work includes leading on the forthcoming audio facility for the course-book ‘Reading Latin’ (Cambridge University Press 2016) widely used on Adult Education and University Classics courses. In all my courses I try to include speaking and listening work, thus following the students’ stated preference for hearing how we think Latin and Greek were spoken in Classical times.
