Every day, language teachers grade their language to help students understand complicated concepts in a simple way. Very few TEFL authors are able to do the same. Far too much of language teaching literature is, to quote Stephen Krashen, “Far too long, far too incomprehensible and far too full of jargon,” not to mention far too expensive. The TEFL Training Institute podcast is short, easy to understand and free. In each 15-minute episode, we discuss practical, thought-provoking or controversial topics with our friends, and some of the biggest names in language teaching. From motivation to materials, training to teenagers, approaches to assessment, if you want to become a better teacher, trainer or manager, start here. With hosts Ross Thorburn and Tracy Yu.

The most inspiring podcast for TESOL teachers/ teacher trainers

I am an ESL teacher and I follow quite a few TESOL podcasts. This is by far the most inspiring one not just because of the quality of the content but also the passion of hosts.

Applicable information in a concise format

The format is excellent and there isn’t much fluff. It’s all valuable information and I see myself implementing the concepts almost immediately in the classroom. I get so, so much out of this podcast and am able to do so on my walk to work or making a quick meal. Thank you!!
