- Gavin Dudeney's musings sparked off a lively debate on the role of gender in ELT.
- Neal Chambers is helping his students out with differences in satire and irony.
- Alex Case's latest guest piece was hopefully, as Nicky implied, simply a satire on getting a teaching English certificate.
- Johanna Stirling's encouraging TEFL teachers and language students to become involved in a literacy project: did you know that 90% of women and 80% of men are illiterate in Afghanistan?
- Natasa Grojic has everyone in tears and is challenging what to talk about into class and what not.
- Anne Hodgson's bio-tech students are only interested in the bare necessities so she gives it to them!
- Lindsay Clandfield has us day-dreaming of the year 2050, when finally we teachers will have nothing more to do but press a couple of buttons! Of course, that would end up meaning that Asimov was right. Sigh. (link from Scott Thornbury via Twitter).
