Author information

Steven Collins was born in London in 1960 and has lived most of his life there. He qualified as a lawyer (solicitor) in 1987, having done a Master's in Law at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. He then decided to make a complete change of career and went into T.E.F.L (Teaching English as a foreign Language). Having lived and taught in Italy and Spain for a short while, he returned to London in 1993 to write the Practical Everyday English series of books for advanced students. He has been a full time writer since 2008.

Review quote

This is the best book on conversational English and phrasal verbs I've ever read. When, I'm in the UK, I never go anywhere without it."Hideki Noda (celebrated Japanese playwright): "Mr Collins's books cover exactly the gap that foreigners still have to cross in order to pass from just grammatically correct English to real daily English." Dr Juan Coderch (Senior Classics Tutor, The University of St. Andrews, Scotland
