Welcome to the first post (of hopefully many) of this new blog. The intention of the blog is just to act as an outlet for all the TEFL-related musings that go on in my head on a daily basis. My main TEFL interests are in aspects of culture and identity and the role of teachers and so-called native speaker teachers in the EFL world. Although I know very little about it, I’m also fascinated by the social-psychological aspect of language learning and teaching, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a little of that creeps into the blog too.
I’m going to try to keep it as casual as possible and most posts will probably be half-developed musings and semi-thought out ideas that pose many more questions than they offer answers.
All feedback and discussion is warmly welcomed, but if it just ends up with me venting my thoughts into the digital ether, that’s OK too.
