Teacher Talk is an ongoing series of podcasts dedicated to exploring the world of English Language Teaching and teacher education. We aim to talk to a wide range of people involved in English language education, from those working in the classroom to those involved with research and everyone in between. We hope those listening will become part of a community talking together about English language education.
Teacher talk is proud to be supported by NILE, the top teacher training and development institute in the UK.
