EFL Bliss - in lieu of a blog

This might have been a blog, but a blog demands something more frequent, and you end up with that horrible feeling of being slapped by the calendar because you haven't written anything for so long. But why write unless you really have something to say?

From time to time, though, we do actually write pieces that (usually) have a connection with EFL and the business of teaching English as a foreign language. Here is a selection.

About Fullspate: - Fullspate is actually one man with a PhD and a laptop who grew tired of the bland contents of EFL coursebooks, decided to write slightly more engaging stuff for his English students, and then thought it might be nice to share them online.
