Letter 1

Dear Hania,

I hope this email finds you well. My apologies for not being in touch - it's been an 'interesting' summer to say the least, and I've spent as much of it as possible recharging my batteries. I've done fairly well with that, as it happens - and I have a new book to show for it (you can find it here if you're curious: (…)

I've finished one book that is entirely not related to teaching (Gravenham is all about zombies) I've decided that the next one should only look at EFL  and nothing else. I'm calling it 'A Teacher's Journal of the Year of the Plague' - the same title, more or less, that Daniel Defoe used for a similar account of the great plague of the 17th century. (…)

Dear ELTNetwork

I trust you are all managing to remain well in these difficult times.

I am just wanting to let you know that I am currently negotiating with CUP for a book on EMI around the world, and looking for people to contribute to a systematic review of the existing literature and also to conduct a small-scale new piece of research.

If you know someone who might be interested in contributing, or if you are interested in being included yourself, please let me know.

The major gap at the moment is someone/s from Africa., but we also need people from all over.

Looking forward to hearing from you, best wishes, Carol
