Welcome to The TEFLology Podcast – a podcast all about teaching English as a foreign language, and related matters.
In today’s episode we address the two issues that are dominating world events at the moment. In the first section, we respond to the demonstrations triggered by George Floyd’s murder with a short account about race and racism in ELT. In the second part of the show, we reflect on our experiences with teaching remotely, due restrictions brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
Thanks for listening!!
