In this podcast, Jay chats to Judy Thompson who might be described as a "renegade" English language teacher.

Judy has a unique approach to language teaching whereby she doesn't teach what she learned or what could be described as "traditional language teaching"; instead, she teaches what she does or what is naturally occurring in language and she has developed her own methodology for doing this.

As such, her approach to language teaching is refreshingly authentic and also very effective. In this particular discussion, Jay and Judy pull apart 'intelligibility' in English which includes the sounds of English, as well as the importance of word and sentence stress.

This conversation will be appropriate for both students and teachers alike.
