I started this blog in 2005 but stopped for a number of years. Getting the occasional comment motivated me to write again. I try to blog about English teaching in Japan with an emphasis on teacher education. I am not the best writer in the world but I hope the content here might be useful to people who are interested in EFL in Japan. I usually have strong opinions about the issues I write about but because this blog is not anonymous, I try to avoid making statements that could cause a stir.
