Gwyneth Fox


Profile: I have taught EFL/ESL at all levels from nursery to university, mainly in UK but also in Italy and Luxembourg. From 1981 until 2005 I worked at the University of Birmingham, most of the time on the Cobuild project, which I ran from 1990-97.

Since 1999 I have worked with Macmillan as a consultant for EFL dictionaries. The first Cobuild dictionary was published in 1987 and I have been all over the world since promoting Cobuild dictionaries and publications and more recently Macmillan dictionaries. For example, I have given full-day workshops in Kenya, Ethiopia and Ghana, shorter workshops in South America, South-East Asia and Europe, and have attended conferences in more than 30 countries.
