What is your professional background?
started out to be a high school English teacher in the US, but decided to go on to graduate school in TESOL. Took a job in EFL in Japan in 1985 and have been here (off and on) ever since. Wrote a children's EFL textbook series (first edition in 1989, now in 3rd edition). Now, I teach privately, and mostly train native (non-English speaking) teachers in countries where my books are used (mostly Asia and Latin America). Totally hooked on Second Life, even if I don't have a current opportunity to use it except for professional development.

Hi Barb,
I'm a librarian at the University of Manchester and I'm researching foreign language learning in SL and its implications for resource provision in academic libraries. I am doing this work as an Arcadia Fellow at Cambridge University Library. I would like to interview people who are actively involved in foreign language learning in SL (both students and teachers) and, preferably, who also have experience of using academic libraries as part of their foreign language learning. However, I would still like to hear from you even if you only fit into one of these two target groups. I imagine the interview won't be longer than approx. 30 min. I would be very grateful if you would be willing to participate. The interviews will take place in SL (or via Skype) over the next 3 weeks (until early June). Please send me a message and we can arrange a convenient date and time. You are very welcome to pass this message on to relevant colleagues. Many thanks!
