New TEFL stuff summer 2020

This is usually the time of year when I prove how busy I’ve been while the rest of you have been dossing off on the beach or getting paid to herd around kids in identical backpacks, and also make sure you don’t miss stuff that’s appeared while you’ve had better things to think about and which could be useful when you get back to the usual routine. Looking at the weird fluctuations of my blog stats (not that I often do that, of course), I’m guessing there is not yet a new normal in TEFL, so who knows how useful this could be this year… Anyway, here are the 32 new PDFs, five new articles (and kind of articles), and five new index pages, with the newest top of each section.
