Teaching Kimchi is conducting a “Who’s Who” in the Korean blogging world and loves to introduce Crawford to all visitors of this site. If you would like to be interviewed, please shoot us an email us.
Born in New York City in the year 1941, Crawford grew up in Los Angeles and Mexico City. A wonderful teacher with 41 years of experience, loves to learn and impart knowledge. Crawford has worked as a teacher in China as well. He has contributed a lot by way of writing interesting books and journals. His current project includes a novel and articles for online journals. His other interests are politics, hiking, history, and environment.
A tool he recommends on the internet useful for English teaching would be the blog itself. “Ask the English Teacher http://crofsblogs.typepad.com/english is really a user-driven site: People sends him questions and quires and he tries to answer them. In the process, he says he often gets a chance to learn more about English before he gives a useful answer. In such a way he too gets benefited in a large way. He being not a trained ESL instructor gets to know about the problems faced by non-native English speakers and writers. That in turn gives him insight into the strange and wonderful language.
He find teaching to be an enjoyable profession , where each one, can bring in some surprises and challenges to the methods of teaching at any point of time —as well as the same old problems about I before E except after C, and subject-verb agreement.
The greatest attractions what he feels about learning and teaching English are that one never learn it all. The language changes before our eyes, and all one can do is to change with it.
People interested can communicate with Crawford at http://crofsblogs.typepad.com/english and find solutions to problem related to English.
