Michael Macfarlane has an MA in Applied Linguistics from Essex University and began his career in teaching and educational TV in Japan. He subsequently worked on a British Council project, which involved supplying and running the new Language Centre for King Abdul Aziz University in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia. This moved him in the direction of full-time writing and he became Development Manager for OUP’s in-house writing unit. He also gained ELT publishing experience with OUP Japan.
Since 1983, Michael has worked as a freelance writer, teacher, editor and publishing consultant. He is particularly interested in meeting specific needs, whether by market or by student subject interest, such as business studies.
He has worked on several Garnet Education publications, including Link, a four-level course for Arab World absolute beginners; English Practice Grammar; and the English for Libya series. Other major projects include vocational courses for Germany (Cornelsen-OUP and Cornelsen); English for Palestine, Grades 8-12 (Macmillan); and International Express, pre-intermediate and intermediate self-study components (OUP).
