In our latest episode, Lindsay and Shaun discuss pairs - why do teachers love pair work but then refuse to work in pairs in a workshop? Do we use pair work too much? Lindsay shares some of his favourite ways of putting people in Paris (yes, Paris) and the duo discuss binomials, reduplications and the rules governing the word order within them.

This is the perfect episode! Lindsay and Shaun explore the perfect aspect and what makes it so fun / hard/ difficult (delete as appropriate) to teach. They also explore what makes a perfect classroom and a perfect student. Finally, they discuss how close they are to being perfectionists.

In episode two Lindsay and Shaun discuss instructions and the complexity they hold for teachers. We discuss what makes a good instruction, how we wish other jobs took on board ELT instruction giving, as well as what makes them go wrong. Later in the episode, we consider what ELT activities have complicated instructions and Lindsay shares some advice about writing good instructions. There is also a surprise guest appearance from a high-demanding ELT Author sharing his wisdom on instructions.

In this episode Lindsay, Shaun and James (yes we've let him on mic again) give it their best shot at a cheesy Christmas episode. After stumbling across a website that proclaims the recipe for an unforgettable Xmas lesson for adult learners we decided to put it to the test....Happy Christmas everyone.

In the penultimate episode of this season Shaun and Lindsay talk stereotypes. They discuss teaching stereotypes in movies and what the real-life equivalent might be. They also consider if they have any stereotypical behaviours in the classroom before touching on class materials and the students they teach.

It’s an irregular episode! First because one of the regular hosts (Shaun) isn’t here. Instead, Lindsay and Ceri sit down to talk about all things irregular in language teaching. First off, this means the infamous irregular verb list. We were both surprised at how much research and writing has been done on these approximately 180 verbs. We begin to go deep on the origins of irregular verbs and whether or not they are disappearing. We also talk about other irregular things in English grammar, and finish by looking at how English teaching is irregular in other ways - irregular hours, irregular contracts, irregular teaching style.
