David Watkins

David is originally from the UK but has been living and working in Japan since 2001, teaching in both private and public schools. In 2013, David set up Yamatalk English School to focus on teaching younger learners. David began to teach with Jolly Phonics in 2014, seeing outstanding results from his students. He finds Jolly Phonics to be a wonderful way not only to teach children literacy, but to also unlock their enthusiasm and motivation for studying English.

David would like to share his experiences with Jolly Phonics as a means to teach literacy, not just with other teachers, but with parents looking to get involved in their children’s English learning.
