Roundup: The Bible and English • English is stupid • Publisher calls for spicy EMEs • CELTA Top Ten

At the Guardian, David Crystal and Jeanette Winterson give their thoughts on the influence on English of the King James Bible. The Toronto Star reports on ESL teacher Judy Thomson's efforts to reform English with her book "English is Stupid". One suggestion of how seriously to take this lady is that her About page shows her organization is a proud member of...wait for it...Facebook, as well as TESL Ontario and LinkedIn... Abax president Hugh Graham-Marr gives a publisher's take on the state of EMEs (Educational Materials Exhibtions) at teacher's conferences and gives 6 reasons why fewer teachers are visiting EMEs. At TEFLtastic, James Taylor gives a neat list of "10 Things You’ll Learn By Doing The CELTA".
