http://traffic.libsyn.com/mastersoftesol/22_-_Stafford_Lumsden_-_Online_Learning.mp3 {bleep bloop bleep} I booted up cyborg teacher Stafford Lumsden to talk about online learning and the changing perception of what exactly a classroom is.

http://traffic.libsyn.com/mastersoftesol/21_-_Can_Dictation_Be_Fun__-_Oksana_Kharley.mp3 “Oh googie…dictation….” Possibly one of the most misused input/output techniques. The dreaded dictation.

Plurals are easy, right? There’s one or there’s more than one… pretty straight forward. “All”, “every”, “All the” “each” – that’s pretty simple too, isn’t it? Well, hold on to something sturdy as Eytan Zweig gets you to think a little deeper about how we both form and understand language. The literal meaning (semantics) and the meaning of the use (…
 
In the first of this batch of hit-n-run quickie interviews from the KOTESOL conference in Seoul at the end of 2016, I spoke to Justin McKibben about how we can expand students roles.

http://traffic.libsyn.com/mastersoftesol/06_-_How_ESL___EFL_students_learn_-_Stephen_van_Vlack.mp3 As teachers, we need to be aware of how students are learning.

http://traffic.libsyn.com/mastersoftesol/05_-_How_to_teach_intonation_-_Dorothy_Chun.mp3 One of the most overlooked elements of teaching spoken language is intonation.

http://traffic.libsyn.com/mastersoftesol/04_-_Questioning_the_Native_Speaker_Norm_-_Jennifer_Jenkins.mp3 English as a Lingua Franca – ELF – is English as a shared language (usually) between non-native speakers.

http://traffic.libsyn.com/mastersoftesol/02_-_Gestures_and_Embodied_Cognition_-_Scott_Thornbury.mp3 In class, we point behind us to represent the past. Forward for the future.
