New ELT News column: 'Japan, India, Online English Writing' by Abhishek Goel

abhishek.jpgELT News would like to welcome Abhishek Goel as a columnist. Abhishek will write about his experiences teaching writing online. He is the founder of Cactus Communications, which has become a leader in providing online writing courses to universities and companies in Japan.

In Abhishek's first entry, 'Online Teaching and Learning – Relevant for Writing?' he writes about how Cactus was set up and the advantages of learning and teaching writing online. He writes: 'I think a key advantage of teaching written English using a computer is the opportunity for the teacher to go deep into the learners’ writing. Teachers can edit the learners’ writing, use macros to quickly insert correction codes, insert comments neatly in any part, and of course write out detailed suggestions. Imagine doing all that on paper: the resulting evaluation may not even be legible!
