Episode 15

Loved this episode. It tied in so well to what I’m doing as a last activity in my classroom. Everyone is introducing & describing a resource/activity to learn English that has really helped them. This is to encourage continued learning during the summer. Thanks!

Listen, learn and be entertained

I often feel like listening to teaching podcasts is like eating my vegetables. This one is actually entertaining, due in large part to its garrulous hosts. Give it a try and you’ll become a more informed teacher while actually enjoying yourself.

Check this out!

This is a great podcast for ESOL educators! The most recent episode about teaching online was really timely and helpful. I’m looking forward to doing a deep dive into past episodes.
