Jacek Łagun graduated from the Teacher Training College in Olsztyn in 1996 and acquired an MA from the University of Gdańsk in 2000. He has been teaching for over 20 years, starting from a group of 10-year-olds, moving on a year later to teach Grammar School students for three years. He has been teaching in English Perfect since 1997 where he was an Assistant Director of Studies from 2007 to 2012. His professional experience also includes being an UCLES examiner since 2003 and being a lecturer at the University of Warmia and Mazury since 2007. In 2016 he completed his PhD on the perception of taboo topics and lexical items amongst people aged 17-25 . He is also an author of ELT books and materials for Gateway, Interface and Voices series.
Group dynamics and positive motivation as well as the use of controversial and taboo topics in teaching English comprise the main areas of his professional interests. In his free time he is obsessed with basketball being a ‘stat-rat’, a fan, an amateur player and a coach for a group of children aged 5 to 11. He also enjoys long-distance running - he has finished two marathons. He loves his wife and two sons. Finally, enigmatically as it sounds, he is quite often referred to as ‘the other of the two’ or ‘a Xero Brother’.
