Nicholas Groom and Jeanette Littlemore, 2011
In which I announce a new project.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to be spamming this place with countless papers and textbooks, as much as anything because I only write here about books I’ve read from cover to cover and you never really do that with academic material. However, this blogging experiment has worked pretty well regarding making me think about things, and clarifying those thoughts, and it seems like a substantial dose of that wouldn’t go amiss when studying.
So it is with absolutely no fanfare that I announce Shield This Increase, wherein I shall be occasionally putting up thoughts and ideas more specifically focused on Applied Linguistics. I’m not expecting you to all flock over there in droves, if only because that would imply there were droves of you to begin with. In fact the only reason I’m mentioning it here is because I actually did read this book from cover to cover and rules is rules. More specific thoughts on it are available here.
So that’s two young kids, increased responsibility at work (finally), and a distance learning course. What could possibly go wrong?
