    Dear Mr. Wright,
    This will sound unusual, I know but I do like these kind of ‘mental connections’ between people. The truth is, I didn’t write the comment above to answer your question. Looking at the time of the posts, it seems that we were writing about the same thing at the same time! Yes, while you were writing the question about stone faces, I think i was writing my thoughts about it already! 🙂

    Kind regards,

    Çiğdem Engin

    thanks for your website…

    Well if I hadn’t have typed ‘storytelling ‘ and ‘Budapest’ into the old Laptoptometer then the world of EFL, Art and Storytelling would never have opened so wide via your site.

    And I’ve just logged onto the online version of the Istanbul storytelling fest where you will be ,as a bonus.. its just gets better and better…

    What vitamins do you take to prodigiously produce such fun and creativity?

    Oh and Budapest…re ; your Trinity Tesol (is that a full EFL course, not the IBET one ? ) launching anytime soon ?

    …and your August 3 day course is a great opportunity ,very tempting , thank you.

    The netsuke stones are well …. a work of art….!!!

      Martyn! Thank you so much for your wonderfully encouraging words! I came upstairs to my room feeling battered after a disagreement with my teenage daughter and then worried by the survival of our language school in these difficult times…generally feeling at a low ebb and THEN Dee Di DEEE! Your lovely email!

      The Cert IBET is with Mark Powell who is simply the best when it comes to Business English. It is a 50 hour course in 8 days and we charge less than any of the other schools where he does it…and you can get it all paid by the EU anyway.

      Yes, please come to my workshop on storytelling…and bring your friends. We need 10 people but I will do it even if there is only one person.

      Thank you again. Andrew PS I am SO happy you looked at the pictures..almost noone has ever commented on them! PPS Please tell me a bit more about yourself.

        I am 52 and UK born and bred with a maternal southern Italian background. I’m currently living in Geneva with my gf and ..well, trying to find a strategy for remaining abroad, I’ve been looking for TEFL trainings , and there are a couple in B’Pest, to tempt me into teaching…that’s why I wondered if you do one..(a basic trinity cert tesol/celta/efl thing) to prepare for work )…
        I have few if any class/exam/grammar strategies but loadsss of unread books on the matter….conversation and creative stimulation is my forte so adult peer groups would be ideal…
        my career path of the next few months is work in progress…

        .but my real desire is to find and develop any latent creativity within work
        between people as a soft skill approach to new worlds and work correspondences….i’m not a friend of fluorescent lighting in bare classrooms

        I have been an EFL teacher in a humanistic method residential school in Czech Republic , which was wacky and filled with laughter…I had free reign to use the range of British humour from loads of tv series et al on the willing Havel -inspired bohemians. My background is through some Commedia del’arte with Antonio Fava’s School in Reggio Emila and through teaching ,years ago, in a democratic libertarian international boarding school in the UK.

        In 2010 I met Alan Maley in a humanistic efl fest in ITALY..he was cool…and I always quote him as saying to the stunned audience there that ‘of course class education is more about controlling students than about learning..’ coming from one of.efl doyennes this was greatly appreciated….he got my singular round of applause…Sir Ken Robinson says the same to great humorous effect in his RSA lecture online.

        I find it difficult to imagine transforming my current domesticity into regular paid work , but needs must and life will out…So I’m currently overheating my laptop in the search for any number of combos to make the journey more piratical than pragmatical….I remain curious enough about the Balkans and Central Europe to think of living there..especially the enchanting Croatia. Ideally I’d just do storytelling in schools and children’s festivals like the one in Sibenik ..well maybe one day..

        And Hungary. well on my last journey through it was as flat as a pancake…but hey at least there’s lake Balaton. I have a variety of diplomas in Fine Art ,a Master Prac in NLP and one from Commedia dell Arte plus a useless but great for study research purposes online EFL cert..apparently the Koreans and the Hungarians would accept it !!!
        Oh and I discovered Ben Haggarty..at a London fest at Xmas…..wow, just wow see here:

        I understand Jan who’ll be in Istanbul is the Crick Crack club exponent for the fest…where Ben resides…

        .I’ll be tuning in online

        erm that’s probably way too much storytelling for now …(this doesn’t have to be blogged)

        and about your paintings….i could see them being animated for some EU sponsored cultural project…or turned into a puppet show ….nice work..

        Ta for asking, all da best

    Another great thing about Customized Fat Loss is that this
    will help you in reducing weight as well as stimulate the expansion of your muscles.

    If you think that you can skip Alli for one meal in order to eat something
    high in fat, think again. Apart from that, they are also ready to even provide packaging, letters
    of credit and consular documentation.

    Hey there! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website such as
    yours require a massive amount work? I’m completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will
    be able to share my own experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

    Appreciate it!

    I’m not fastidious,but please fold your napkins on leaving the table and ask permission to sit on the edge of the sofa as any full use will wear out the covering material, over time.Oh and please leave the toothpaste tube on the right of the sink.

    • 17 Andrew Wright July 21, 2013 at 7:40 pm

      Now, I am convinced that I am not fastidious! By the way, what did you think about the paintings on stones and wood? I hope you liked them. Andrew

  9. 18 Inspire Waves July 21, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    Is there a way of teaching EFL via Netsuke and silent Japanese Brush painting. The Silent Wei Wu Wei perhaps to empty the mind so that it attunes itself first? I reckon each stone is a millenial story in itself. Nice you have the patience and attunement to each piece to let the magic come through.

    • 19 Andrew Wright July 22, 2013 at 8:44 am

      Try it and let me know how you get on…day by day…week after week…finding someone to pay you to do it…and earning enough to survive. I like the idea…but it is easy to get ideas and so much more demanding to put them in to practice. Andrew

      • 20 Inspire Waves July 22, 2013 at 11:39 am

        I’m about to leave for a Dos job in Italy. Over in the Czech Republic I used to do EFL residentials, with the sound of early morning laughing meditation for the stressed Skoda execs. We had a funky bunch of directors. One held fire walking seminars monthly, so I knew if it didn’t work out we’d be going to hell … Trubble with being a Dos is that the demands for Trinity/ Cam exams are a bit fastidious and don’t include any laughs for the hallowed halls of Fascistidious academia.Wel not yet, but you never know. The Croatians do love their stand up comedy gigs at their annual EFL conf and Alan Maley did say ‘you know education’s all about control not learning’ , to a Humanist Conf in Italy not so long ago. Bloody anarchist. Nice paintings and fun resources there though Andrew, sometimes work does pay if you love what you do. Obviously you do.Inspiring and dedicated.

      • 21 Andrew Wright July 23, 2013 at 7:44 am

        What a nice response to wake up to this morning! Thank you for it. Best wishes for your new job in Italy! Andrew

    how do you resist those strong temptations to eat wrong foods and hurt your health and
    your light level. Learning you have celiac
    disease can be very overwhelming, particularly as the ‘cure’ is not
    one or two pills, but a very strict gluten-free diet.
