David Wilson has recently retired from full-time teaching of French, German and students with special educational needs at Harton Technology College in South Shields in the North East of England. His main research interests lie in modern foreign languages (MFL), special educational needs (SEN) and information and communication technology (ICT). He has presented at conferences in the United Kingdom, Hungary, Canada and Japan. Several publishers and organisations have commissioned him to write articles and to provide specialist advice. Schools and universities have invited him to run teacher-training workshops. He has contributed to a recent European Commission report. His website at http://www.specialeducationalneeds.com features his research papers, cross-curricular portals and a sample of his teaching materials for MFL learners with SEN. He posts regularly on educational forums, often in response to colleagues and parents seeking advice and assistance about MFL and SEN.
