New ELT News column: 'Writing Right' by Torkil Christensen

Torkil.jpgELT News would like to welcome Torkil Christensen as a columnist for ELT News. Torkil has made major contributions to ELT in Japan going right back to the early years of JALT. During this time he has edited and assisted numerous writers so his 'Writing Right' column will be based on a great deal of experience and should prove fascinating.

Torkil is Emeritus Professor of Hokusei Gakuen University Junior College. During a long teaching career he has taught to students of many levels of competence and ages, always focusing on instilling motivation and fostering interest. The article in the January, 2005 issue of The Language Teacher "Dogme in language teaching in Japan" closely reflects his approach to the teaching of languages. For many years he was the coordinator of the Peer Support Group of JALT helping struggling writers with their papers.
