edu.blogs.com in the Guardian today: What's the best way to teach a language?

I'm dead chuffed to have been able to get into my favourite section of Saturday's Guardian: the Work one (I should point out that it's my favourite because it tends to talk about anything but work). In Tricks of the Trade I put forward my ideas for how we can teach languages. Unsurprisingly, technology features heavily because of its ability to let me learn when I want to and in the way I want to. Simple, really.

Good idea, Ewan - the podcast search. I did a quick search and found many interesting resources - useful and, as you say, free! Thanks.

Ewan, thank you for the idea with podcasts.
I am trying to learn French, as a German.

Congratulations on being mentioned in the Guardian (in a positive report!). Hope you enjoy the Dutch - it's a good time of year to practice clearing your throat: one of my favourite Dutch words "gezellich" takes a lot of throat-clearing http://rubyrennie.edublogs.org/2007/01/07/untranslatable/
wat leuk!

Good mention, huh?

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential.

We work long term to help make that change last, even as educators come and go.
