We Teach Languages Episode 43: Common Misconceptions in English Language Teaching with Ryuko Kubota

In ep 43, Stacey asks Ryuko Kubota, a professor of language and literacy education at the University of British Colombia, about a recent publication in which she explores ten common misconceptions in English language teaching (ELT). Ryuko talks about several of those misconceptions, including how beliefs about native speakers, whiteness, and legitimate forms of language contribute to the general public's understanding of who is a good language teacher.
