Welcome.  EFL Nook is for both teachers and learners of English as a Foreign Language (EFL).   Teachers of EFL will find a variety of resources here, such as lesson plans, exercises, teaching tips, links to other teaching resources on the net, and country-specific information about teaching EFL abroad.  Learners of EFL will find a variety of helpful resources here, such as instructional videos, grammar explanations, links to other learning resources on the net, and many practice exercises.


My name is Vincent Polywoda.  I am a university-educated, native English speaker from the U.S. and a teacher of EFL.  I have a TEFL certificate and taught business English in Santiago, Chile.   I currently teach private English lessons in the U.S. and on-line.   I maintain contact with other teachers that I know, and we share ideas and experiences.

I hope you enjoy my website and find it useful.  Please feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions.  Thanks for visiting
