John Bradbury is the head of Language & Development at the CG-SQUARE center for learning and excellence. Having been raised across varying continents from an early age he has become a talented linguist who speaks a wide array of languages. Now at 34 years of age he has acquired more than 10 years of experience in the field of education and language development.

His career has taken him through multiple continents in Education. From 2008-2018 he was situated in China where he developed language courses and syllabi for universities such as Xi’an Jiao Tong University and Sichuan University and language institutions for non-native language speakers. 

His passion for language and development stems from his own experiences of learning multiple languages and his understanding of the  difficulties that non-native learners face. John is a strong believer in that language shapes the way we think and determines what we think about and that it is one more window from which to look at the world.
