It's the start of a new season and in episode one Shaun and Lindsay talk family. They discuss whether teaching runs in someone family before looking at how families are dealt with in ELT. Which famous family tree would use in class? Do you know what a nibling is? Just how many types of cousin are there? All this and more in our season 8 opener.
Lindsay and Shaun bring the curtain down on another season by discussing the classics - not Greek or Latin but what they consider to be classic ELT books and activities. Will you agree their choices? Since it's also the last episode we let producer James have a turn on mic as well.
