Josh Underwood has provided feedback on the week’s activities in a video update.

This is an additional video, hosted on YouTube.

Josh talks about his 3 principal beliefs about language teaching – and also adds a 4th!

This video was recorded in Spain on 8th May. Please note: at times there are issues with the sound due to bird song!
