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 Content Editor.  I do digital authoring for Macmillan and also write various lesson series for their OneStopEnglish website. Aside from the world of EFL, I have recently found a way to monetise my love for Rihanna and hatred of Clean Bandit (!). Yes, I am currently writing a book about pop music, due to be published by Luster in 2019.

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.
