My name is Luke Lawrence and I’ve been teaching English in Japan since 2002. This blog was created as an outlet for the various thoughts and musings about TEFL and Applied Linguistics issues that go on in my head and as a concrete step towards professional development.

My intention is not to rant and vent my own personal dogmatic opinions (although it will be very personal), but just to pose questions and use the blog as a way of trying to make sense of sone key issues that relate to TEFL and my professional life.
