A Big Thank You To…

Ryan & Amy – Two young and talented film makers studying at Newcastle College who helped me to make the video for this project (

Richard from County Print – A fantastic family run printing business established over 35 years, who stand out head and shoulders above all the other local printers that I approached to help with my project (

Bricel – A graphic designer based on the beautiful island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean who has provided the graphic design work required to translate Verbwise from concept to reality (

Amany – An IT support expert who also runs a language learning group (Be Serious & Learn Language).

Sony – and my Xperia L! All the photos for this project were taken using this phone (except the one below…). I used this phone to create the Verbwise Facebook page and wrote many of the early lessons using just this phone!
