In this episode, Lindsay is joined by Ceri to discuss all things home, which is perfect as they are both under quarantine at the moment! They talk about home expressions in English, how difficult it is for materials writers to find the right images of homes, and some activity ideas for lockdown. And as Shaun isn’t there, you don’t need to worry about hearing any of his jokes!

In this episode we talk sick but don’t worry we won’t bang on about a certain virus! In this somewhat bumper episode we talk to Kate in Italy about what it’s like when the government imposes quarantine rules, and how to cope when a school is closed. Lindsay and Shaun talk about the best song to wash your hand to and discuss the metaphors of illness and the language we teach. Realising that neither of them had ever taught medical English, we speak to Ros Wright, who’s more of an expert on the matter. Finally, since we can’t do an episode in being sick without a few doctor doctor jokes, Shaun yet again tries Lindsay’s patience.

In this episode we talk privacy (and try to work out how to say it!). Lindsay and Shaun talk privacy in the classroom, private lessons and technology and privacy and the implications for the classroom. On this last point we talk with Chia Suan Chong who has written about this issue. Oh and we also 'fight' about which is better group or 1-2-1.

Have you missed us? It's time for season 11 to get underway it might be the beginning of season but we're going to talk exits. In the episode Shaun and Lindsay about ways to end a lesson, different kind of sotry endings, exiting ELT and yes the politics of the UK. James also joins in the episode with a bit of jargon busting.

Another comes to end with our traditional end of season round table. So join Lindsay, Shaun, Ceri and James to see what they would take with them if they were stranded on a dessert island.

In episode 5 we get disruptive though Lindsay would probably say Shaun is every week! This episode we explore disruption in education both from a technology point of view and a disruptive classroom. And since we're being disruptive we bring back the TEFL fight feature, and there can be only one winner.

In episode four Shaun and Lindsay address most teachers' daily accessory - the backpack. They share some and I quote Lindsay here "fun facts about backpacks" and discuss what they always carry in theirs. They also discuss why some refer to ELT as a backpack profession.

Since Halloween is upon us (well, to be honest, it's been and gone) Shaun and Lindsay discuss fear. They talk about teacher fears, scary teachers and finally other things that make students afraid. We also explore some common phobias in the return of our listener quiz.

October 21, 2019 05:17 AM PDT

Time to talk food, in this episode, we explore recipes in ELT. In this episode, Lindsay and Shaun discuss the language of recipes and what makes them such a useful and often used piece of ELT material? What is it that makes them a good metaphor for teaching? On a less serious note, Lindsay discovers the joys of traditional English recipes and is that the returning sound of angels?

October 07, 2019 10:27 AM PDT

We're back and to start the new season we've gone green. We meet two of the people behind ELT footprint to talk about the ELT profession with regards to climate change.
