Why an ‘A – Z’ of Common Sense in ELT?

‘Common sense is the wisdom of ordinary people’ (Goethe)

Like so much of modern intellectual life, a good deal of what is regarded as ‘thinking’ in ELT is actually made up mainly of a set of well-honed socio-political prejudices.  As a result, a wide range of pedagogical practices are advocated by the professional elite which are of little relevance to the majority of ELT situations around the world, while others, of considerable practical value, are condemned.  This blog is intended to expose these fallacious ways of thinking, and to try to encourage a more down-to-earth approach to looking at issues and problems in ELT, for the benefit of the profession at large.
