Dear Fellow bloggers,
This will be my last message, as my time as guest writer has now come to an end.

I mentioned 'flow' in my last blog. How do teachers establish the right atmosphere for achieving a flow state in their classes. Well, one component is the way they use their voices.&nbs
One of the key questions which surfaces constantly in discussions among teachers is 'what makes a good lesson?'.
I am an alien in the blogo-sphere, so I am not at all sure how to proceed. So ‘whatever’, as they say, let’s just give it a go.
Earlier this year at IATEFL Cardiff, I was interviewed by Rob Lewis of the British Council.
