About EnglishLesson.Info™

EnglishLesson.Info™ is a redesign of my old site, EnglishNowTV.com™. The concept for the site came about from my many years of teaching English as a second language (ESL) in the private and corporate marketplace. Hi, I'm Bernie O'Mahony the founder and creator of EnglishLesson.Info™.

I live in Japan and moved here in 1999 and live with my wife and 14 year old son. After teaching in various schools and locations throughout the area, I saw a trend - English schools keeping students just to get their money, by giving lessons that would be dragged out for weeks or even months. Not wanting to be a part of that, I set out to make quality lessons that students can use alone or teachers can easily print and use in the classroom.

The aim is to give quality content and see students staying to study because they want to! If you're a teacher and feel you have short or long courses that could be offered online, contact me today and see how you can make a passive income by listing your content online with EnglishLesson.Info!

Thank you for dropping by, I appreciate it very much! You can reach me by clicking any of the social icons above in the top right hand links! Look for 'BernieO' on Periscope and Snapchat, and site content, news, etc on the Facebook and YouTube links! Or for an even quicker response, email me!

I'll answer all emails as soon as I can.
