About the author

Mark Hancock presenting the PronPack Sound Chart at an ELT conference

Mark Hancock is a well-known ELT author, teacher and trainer with over 30 years experience in the field. He has taught in Sudan, Turkey, Brazil, Spain and the UK and wrote his first English language teaching book – Pronunciation Games – over 20 years ago. 

Mark’s approach in both teaching and writing ELT materials is to engage the learner and inspire their intrinsic interest in the content and in the process of the lesson. This is driven by his belief that teaching and learning a language can and should be an enjoyable experience.

Pronunciation has been a special interest for much of his career and he has written several popular, award-winning textbooks on the topic. Mark regularly presents on teacher training courses and at international events, both online and face to face.
