About Vicki Hollett
Vicki Hollett was an EFL teacher for more than forty years and an award winning author of many ELT courses for Oxford University Press and Pearson. She chose to use her expertise with English language teaching and materials creation with a camera, instead of books. Together with her film maker husband, she produced videos for corporate clients and also free videos for their Simple English Videos website and YouTube channel. Simple English Videos was a winner in YouTube’s prestigious NextUp 2016 competition for fast rising channels and the prize included a week of training at the YouTube studios in NYC. She always had a lot of tips to share.
Sadly, Vicki passed away in late 2022. She was an amazing ELT author, lecturer, teacher trainer and EFL video producer. We will always remember her extraordinary spirit, and generous personality.
