Service is Resumed

I started this blog about a year ago, but took a "break" in August 2010, with the usual excuse of being too busy to update it. Well, I've decided to refresh the site with a new design.

The old blog had a few posts which were perhaps too lengthy for a blog format. From now on, longer pieces will be published in PDF format and accessible by clicking the "Articles" tab at the top of the page. I intend that the posts here will be of a briefer, more topical and more practical nature than what appeared previously, with more detailed and philosophical musings published in the "Articles" section.

I've also added tabs for ELT resources and research. Some of the resources will be original, but I will also link to other resources that I think are useful. My intention for the "Research" section is to be a repository of categorised links of publicly available research in English language teaching or second language acquisition in general. I've come across lots of interesting papers on the web and I think it would be nice to have some of them in one place. These sections are sparse at the moment, but should fill up over the coming weeks.

I've deleted the old posts. Some of them may appear in the "Articles" section, however. If there is an old post that you would like to see again, e-mail me and I can forward it on to you:



  1. welcome back...

  2. Thanks Sean. I like following your blog and your battles with institutional complacency and student inertia! We have many of the same problems in ELT. I'll add you to the blogroll since I read the blog often.

  3. Hi 26 Letters,

    Glad to see you back blogging. My March and April are getting pretty hectic, but I'll endeavour to catch up with your postings as times goes by, and wherever I can comment with something useful, will do so!
