Miki Pannell is a libertarian linguist.

He holds a degree in Spanish with English and Literary Studies from Middlesex University, England, a post-graduate English Language and Linguistics - Certificado de Tercer Ciclo from the doctoral department of the University of Seville, Spain and is a fully qualified EFL teacher holding a post-graduate Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of a Second Language from Oxford House College, England. Miki prides himself on being an Economics degree dropout from the London School of Economics.

The theatrical ability comes from five years at Plymouth’s Raleigh School of Speech and Drama as an adolescent, and the multi-instrumentalist musical skills (the soundtrack is 100% self-played and self-composed) come from 30 years playing and recording in bands across Europe in a career that includes about 10 albums including 3 solo albums, the most recent being Miki Pannell ‘Me & Mr. M.T. Wallet’ (Heroe de la Guitarra Records).

(Language and content note: Although the course contains no explicit bad language in the texts, audio or video, some swearwords have been analysed in the footnotes for purely academic purposes.) Also, some of the themes included are more suitable for adults as we address topics like alcohol, drugs and adult entertainment. For this we recommend mature students of 16 years or over.)
