Introduction:

It is 23 July, 2019. Welcome to episode 3 of the Delivering Development podcast, helping language teachers and others in the field to enhance their professional development. My name is Kevin Westbrook, and with me today are Neil Bullock and Laura Styles.

Kevin introduced the first slot, looking at suggestions for how listeners could pursue their professional development during the summer break in the northern hemisphere. The others then contributed their ideas.

This was followed by the Tech Tips section. The links for the tips are below:
