Episode 339 - Board Games in English Language Teaching

Episode 339 - Board Games in English Language Teaching

January 6, 2021

In this episode I revisit the presentation I delivered in Speak up London school back in 2019. The idea was to show my teacher colleagues how to use board games in the English language classroom. 

I've been using board games in my English lessons as a teacher for a long time, and I was always interested in finding ways how to justify the games in terms of methodology. Whether you're an English teacher or learner, if you want to find out more about how this approach works, give this episode a listen. 

For anyone who is interested in joining the course or try one lesson for free any time soon, I have some cool information. Just make sure you listen to the end.

This episode explains why I have no choice but cancel all my patron subscriptions, which is extremely annoying for me. In order words, I'm addressing especially anyone who is, has been, or would consider becoming ZEP patron at some point. 

 

If you are currently a ZEP patron, please stay tuned for further information.

Episode 332 - The King Commute

Episode 332 - The King Commute

December 1, 2020

This is an episode I've been planning to do for a long time. It's about a fellow English teacher and a colleague of mine from Speak up London language school Kieren Hughes and the book Battery Life he co-wrote with his friend Nick White. 

Battery Life is a collection of short stories that take place in London. So if you would like to embark upon a kaleidoscopic journey into 21st Century London through the eyes of dozens of unique characters, give this episode a listen. 

In the second part of the episode I read out a selected story from the book called the King Commute. I'm definitely not the best audiobook narrator, but I gave it my best :)

Here's where you can buy Kieren and Nick's book: https://www.amazon.com/Battery-Life-Nick-White/dp/1726233146

Episode 330 - An Announcement which Got out of Hand

November 21, 2020

This was supposed to be one of those announcements in which I invite you to the following live show, but I guess because of my current social deprivation caused by a few factors including the lockdown, I ended up ranting a bit.

Episode 327 - Learn English Online

November 13, 2020

In this episode, I tell you everything you need to know about a new project called LEARN ENGLISH ONLINE. Essentially, this is an online community on Discord where you can meet like-minded English learners.

All of you can join for free and the idea is that this platform will give its members an amazing opportunity to take part in various speaking activities prepared by members of the group, like games and regular discussions. For me and other English teachers, podcasters and youtubers, this will also be a good place to promote our content. 

To become a member of LEARN ENGLISH ONLINE, install discord on your PC or mobile phone, do a quick registration, and then join using this link: https://discord.gg/5hq6vB8WYw
