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: Can do statements in language education in Japan and beyond
Subtitle: Applications of the CEFR
Edited By: Gabriela Maria Schmidt

The first publication from The Framework & Language Portfolio Special Interest
Group (FLP SIG), "Can do statements in language education in Japan and
beyond", includes 23 papers from writers primarily in Japan but also from
influential contributors based in Europe (Mike Byram, Anthony Green, David
Little). One aim of this publication is to give specific ideas and resources for
educators to bring into classrooms. As a result many of the papers in this
volume take on an action research focus. Several other papers seek to explain
the development and issues regarding use of the CEFR, the ELP and can do
statements. All papers feature a Japanese and English abstract. The majority of
the papers are written in English. However, in keeping with the multilingual focus
of the CEFR, two papers are written in Japanese, and three other writers in their
first language of German.
