This webinar is hosted in English

Four years ago I gave a talk at a British Council conference on ‘virtual learning spaces’ and concluded that we already had the necessary technology to do amazing things and that what was lacking was appropriate language teaching pedagogy. I’d like to talk about the same subject again. But this time provide some audio evidence.

"Remarkable. If we had more description of just what lessons Jane did and other exposure to English, and her own view of what caused the improvement, this would be a major contribution to our knowledge about what works. Thanks for posting this." Professor Stephen Krashen.

Jason has almost 20 years of self-employed experience in English language teaching and learning. In 1992, at the age of 25, he co-founded an English language school in the heart of London’s West End and within two and half years the school had achieved British Council accreditation.

A long-standing interest in the psychology of learning lead Jason to feel that something could be done to improve the way his students acquired English. As a result he created the Out There course concept, where students engage directly with fluent or native speakers at every stage of their language development.

After 250,000 hours of teaching and editing Out There published their unique course materials which can be used both offline and on. The online element came out of a fascination with social media and free internet telephony such as Facebook and Skype.

The inexpensive DRM-free course materials for students and teachers recently made the EU’s top 10 formal uses of social media for language learning and can be purchased online from the English Out There website at http://englishoutthere.com

Apart from founding and running Languages Out There, Jason also works with a number of other companies in the languages and communications fields.
