1. OUP have kindly posted something I wrote  on problem solving activities for technical English  here. It contains a lesson idea.

2. Macmillan have allowed me to describe my key struggles with ‘merican  (in their wonderful ‘merican English month) here.

  1. I just re-read what I posted there and thought ‘Goodness, do I sound like a Brit or what?’ I mean, doesn’t that sound like someone who sounds bothered about imposing through and through?

    Sheesh, no wonder I’m having trouble learning ‘merican! 🙂
