ABOUT


Colm Boyd EFL Teacher Materials Writer Picnic EnglishHi. My name is Colm. Thanks for visiting my website. Is it everything you ever dreamed of? Hope so!

Picnic English is an easy-to-use site offering free worksheets for teachers and students of English as a Foreign Language (EFL). Each worksheet is based on a pop song, a movie clip or a trending-topic video.  I create the worksheets myself. Unfortunately as I am not (yet) an international popstar or newsmaker, I can’t claim ownership for any of the videos on here. Picnic English is an educational site with no charges or advertising. If you like it, all I ask is that you tell your friends or colleagues.

By the by, I’m from splendid County Cork in Ireland but live in splendider Barcelona, Spain where I work as an EFL Materials Writer, Content Writer and Teacher.  I’ve written various lesson series for OneStopEnglish and regularly write for British Council Spain blog about ELT and British culture. I also do editing and proofreading of ELT textbooks. And of course, I’m also a teacher at the British Council. I like to spend my free time reading, getting into arguments with friends about the merits (or not) of Taylor Swift’s latest single and generally working myself into a hysterical mess about which drag queens have been wrongfully eliminated from Rupaul’s Drag Race.
