My Full-Time Job and Vocabulary

Recently, a lot of people have been asking me, “What do you do?”

This is difficult for me to answer simply.

I have my own teaching business where I help English and learners and teachers through my videos, articles, courses, and mentoring.

To give you the backstory, after leaving university, I worked in marketing for 18 months. I decided to go travelling and spent 9 months in North and South America.

I met my wife in Ecuador, we had a long-distance relationship for a few months, and then in 2009, we moved to Spain to teach English.

We wanted to settle down, so we moved to America. This is when I started teaching one-to-one lessons online.

Now, I help learners like you through my videos and fluency course, and I also train teachers.


The most common way to ask someone about their profession is to ask, “What do you do?”

In America, I notice a lot of people start this question with so: “So, what do you do?” It makes it a little more polite.

We can also tag on for a living: “So, what do you do for a living?”

What to Do Now:

1. Answer the following question: What do you do?
