Welcome back to The TEFLology Podcast – a podcast all about teaching English as a foreign language, and related matters.

For today’s episode, we are delighted to bring you an interview with Michael Swan. Michael is known for his numerous books, which include Practical English Usage, Basic English Usage, and The Good Grammar Book. Michael’s wide interests include pedagogic grammar, mother-tongue influence in second language acquisition, and the relationship between applied linguistic theory and classroom language-teaching practice.

In today’s interview, Rob asks questions to Michael about his career, developments in English language teaching, and about some of Michael’s beliefs on classroom practice.  

This interview was recorded at Oxford Day 2018, an event organised by Oxford University Press in Japan. We’d like to thank all at OUP Japan for arranging this interview with Michael on our behalf, and for letting us record our podcast during their event.

Enjoy the conversation!
