It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: The Developing Language Learner
Subtitle: An Introduction to Exploratory Practice
Written By: Dick Allwright
Judith Hanks
Series Title: Research and Practice in Applied Linguistics

If we want to treat learners as practitioners of learning, alongside
teachers as practitioners of teaching, and therefore capable of reaping the
developmental benefits of practitioner research, how can we best proceed?
For Allwright and Hanks the answer lies in Exploratory Practice – an
inclusive form of practitioner research developed largely in Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil, and in Lancaster, England, that enables both learners and
teachers to develop their own understandings of their learning and teaching
