Our ongoing series of articles from Patrick Jackson, "A Pat on the Back" continues to draw the biggest reaction from our readers, regularly getting more social media buzz than anything else on the site. The articles look at people in ELT who are helping make the world a better place, usually in small but meaningful ways. So if you know of anyone who is deserving of a pat on the back, please let us know.

I recently managed to catch the attention of globe-trotting ELT celebrity Jeremy Harmer long enough to persuade him to do a quick interview. So if you haven't been one of the lucky ones who have studied with him this year in New York, or seen him in person in Malta or Uruguay, check out the interview.

I just did a quick check and counted 67 ELT-related news stories that have been posted on the site since my last editorial in mid-August. Some stories are obviously bigger than others, butI think you'll find something of interest in our archives.

Busuu is massive. With more than 35 million members, it can claim to be the largest social network for language learning. Members can learn one or more of the 12 languages currently supported (Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Turkish, Arabic, Japanese, Chinese and English). The site is free, with premium content available for a monthly fee. Rather than try to write an article about all the aspects that make Busuu such a great resource for language learners, I'll recommend that you check out the 2-part review article over on eltjam.
