Two fascinating columns added to ELT News

Two new columns have been added over the last week, 'Thoughts on Japan' by Thomas McAuley and 'Material Thoughts' by Jim Smiley. ELT News is clearly going from strength to strength, and even more columns will be added very soon.

Thomas McAuley teaches on the Advanced Japanese Studies MA course at the University of Sheffield and is a renowned Japan specialist. His column should provide fascinating insights even for those who have lived in Japan for many years.

Jim Smiley has a deep knowledge of the educational materials available in Japan and the factors that are (or should be) taken into consideration when they are designed. He is currently the Coordinator of JALT's Materials Writers Specialist Interest Group.
