A trip to York & some forthcoming titles

At the weekend, I had a trip to York for the English UK North academic conference at St John’s University. It was a bit of a flying visit, but I managed to see a little bit of the city with an amble along the Shambles, a glimpse of the Minster and  a stroll through the Museum Gardens:



At the conference, I sat in on a Mike McCarthy plenary – always a pleasure – and a fascinating session by Emina Tuzovic about teaching Arabic learners which provided lots of food for thought. I was talking about ways of supporting and encouraging learners to develop their vocabulary independently.


It was also an opportunity to mention, for the first time, a project I’ve been working on and have been itching to tell people about … the Oxford Academic Vocabulary Practice titles are two self-study books aimed at EAP students and due for publication in January next year. Look out for more details in the next few months …
