Allow me to introduce what is likely to be my last issue as Publications Chair of Between the Keys.
We, the Material Writers team, after our individual blurbs, bring you a host of articles in our new-look publication. We kick off with what is going to be a regular column – Local Notes where we interview Japan-based material writers. Our first interview is with Yukari Kasuda who has recently published not just one but two books!
You may remember from a previous issue part one of Richard Walker’s Confessions of a Collaborator. Well worry not; in this edition we bring you the second and concluding part of his account of writing an in-house textbook for use at Reitaku University.
Moving on from that, we finish with a ‘My Share’ from Kinsella Valies in which she explains how to assess student ability to apply listening, speaking and writing strategies studies by having them listen to an English language presentation by a guest speaker.
Finally, allow me to reiterate what Adam has already said; the team are always looking for people who want to get involved with the creation of BtK, either in a chair role or something less demanding. Interested? Contact our coordinator, Adam Murray, without delay!
Thank you for your support over the last eighteen months or so.
