A Great Youtube Channel

dictionaryofobscuresorrows--0001--teaser--large.thumb There is a lot of great video content out there for teaching. I try my best to stay on top of it all, despite the 1,000s of hours of video uploaded to the internet each minute.  Video is the future.

Great Expectations

This post is really about two things. ONE - to thank Karennee whose post brief post about the video below got my brain flooded with a thousand volts. TWO - to briefly and strongly, suggest an important point about instructing and teaching.

Do you believe in a "standard" English?

Throughout the years, one thing above all continually astounds me about my fellow English Language teachers, researchers, writers, administrators and even students. What is it? Well, it is how conservative they are about language and how they fervently believe and attach themselves to a "standard" English that…
