Hello again.

Scott Thornbury was a plenary speaker at the 'Exams Catalunya 7th ELT Conference' in 2019 and as the 8th Conference has now been scheduled for 14th November, 2020, Exams Catalunya has released a short video of an interview with him, in which he offered his thoughts on some important ELT issues. He answered the following questions: 

  1. Is language a body of knowledge or a skill?
  2. What skills do today’s teachers need? 
  3. How can we bridge the gap between theory and practice?
  4. Is the approach to teaching Englaish very different in the USA to in Europe?
  5. How are conferences useful to teachers?

Enjoy the video.
