Two Teachers Talking™
Monthly
 
Teachers know that when classes are done, the beer has been drawn, teachers gather around the table, and the talk turns to...teaching. Great (and not so great ideas) are thrown around, argued, praised, and ridiculed. What's been missing is a microphone on the table. Until now. If you're a teacher, and especially if you're teaching in Japan, have a listen. Tony and Charles talk about what they've learned, what works, what doesn't, and what other teachers like you have to say.
