On this podcast, you’ll meet Evan, a very experienced teacher who’s originally from Idaho in the US, but now is in Europe and he joined me to talk about teaching, travel and artificial intelligence, among other things.
What’s the most annoying thing about teaching remotely?
Which places and cities have you visited and worked in?
How do you balance the temptation of wanting to visit tourist attractions and needing to work?
What are some other pros and cons of working and travelling?
Bon Jovi – Dead or Alive: “It’s all the same, it’s only the names that change.”
Evan’s mum: “There’s no geographical solution to a personal problem.”
In China, did students have a preference between having a US accent or a British one?
What are your thoughts on students wanting to sound more like a native English speaker?
What would you say to a student who wants to sound more like a native speaker? Who isn’t happy with their accent?
How can students use data analysis to maximise their study time?

Watching paint dry is more fun than this!
One of the downsides is…
China is larger than most people can wrap their head around.
a plethora of cities = a large or excessive amount of something.
The onus is on the listener = the duty or responsibility
Flashcards – a small card, usually with information on both sides (book/libro – or picture of a book)
In a nutshell – in the fewest possible words, briefly
I shout at the top of my lungs = very loudly
to rip off = remove violently
foreskin = the skin at the end of a man’s penus
a hush fell over the restaurant = the restaurant become very quiet (you could hear a pin drop)
to go down a rabbit hole = To enter into a situation or begin a journey that is particularly strange, problematic, difficult, complex, or chaotic. Alice in Wonderland. I went down a rabbit hole when I was searching for something on Google.
Evan went down the rabbit hole of AI.
