The Introvert Teacher

Nearby Glasgow was the venue for the 51st Annual International IATEFL Conference and Exhibition in April 2017. Delegates from around the world enjoyed presentations by speakers over four days. Everything from 'Are you a 21st century Teacher?', through 'Self-publishing ELT materials', to 'The native speaker fallacy, Canadian and Emirati higher education perspectives' - just three examples from hundreds of interesting presentations which combined with pop-up sessions, poster sessions, the exhibition and evening hospitality.

The contestants on 'Say the Word', a pronunciation game show launched on Channel 5 Singapore television for Mediacorp in November, were judged by British Education Centre, our partner school in Singapore. Filming took place in August and there was sometimes a fine dividing line between 'Correct!' and 'Incorrect!' for what was aimed at General British English pronunciation of words. Eight episodes had themes ranging through Business, Medicine, Sport, Fashion, Education, Food and others; contestants were in panels of four; four bloggers, four teachers, four pageant winners, four fitness trainers, four airline cabin attendants.....
