About me

I'm Stan Bogdanov, the proud inventor of the Audio Crossword with HotPotatoes.
I use HotPotatoes a lot; and maintain this HotPotatoes Tutorials site in my free time.

I also support three other HotPotatoes related projects of mine - ported XHTML5 source files and the css3_Facelift which gives HotPotatoes very modern and stylish looks. I've also given a facelift to TextToys - Web Rhubarb and Web Sequitur and Quandary - with some css3.

I wear many hats. I'm an English Teacher and Teacher Trainer, Translator, Mentor and Mentor Trainer, freelance ICT (in language teaching) Trainer, HotPotatoes Trainer, and full-time husband, as well as father of two daughters.

Currently, I'm full-time faculty, Chief Assistant Professor, at the School of eLearning, Vocational and Continuing Education, New Bulgarian University (NBU), Sofia, Bulgaria. I teach on Cambridge Certificate Preparation courses, Action Research in Education, Language Teacher Re-Training (both INSET and PRESET) and Language localization (L10n, T10n).
