TEFL Interviews: Paul Nation on Vocabulary, Fluency, and Curriculum Design

The TEFLology Podcast is a bi-weekly podcast all about teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) and related matters, presented by three self-certified TEFLologists. We take a lighthearted look at the fields of English language teaching (ELT) and applied linguistics, with topics ranging from TESOL methodologies and approaches to current affairs and history.

 

In the first of our JALT 2015 special episodes we present an interview conducted with Paul Nation. Paul is a professor at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and the author of numerous books on vocabulary and on many other aspects of ELT. Matthew and Matt met Paul at the JALT 2015 conference in Shizuoka, Japan, and asked him some questions about vocabulary, fluency, and curriculum design.
