The formula is simple: ELT videos sell a few thousand. The Phantom Menace sells many millions. And in "Only in America" you even get to have Edward Norton in your classroom. The use of multimedia and the Internet is becoming increasingly popular in ELT.

What are your views on this? Dull exercises on a computer are nearly as dull as dull exercises in a book or on a tape. The problem with computers is material. I suspect really good purpose-made material will only arrive once publishers have discovered a foolproof way of getting paid for their efforts in small increments.

But say it becomes 10 cents an exercise? Possibly, but then there has to be a system for paying in 10 cent or one cent blocks and for collecting lots and lots of tiny sums of money.

In all countries primary school and secondary school teaching of English is improving, and will continue to improve. This should lead to adult teaching at a higher average level than now. However, I think there will be an even greater demand for keeping up your level of English by continued practice and conversation.

The impact of technology, especially the internet, will lead to more demand for proficiency in English, as well as more opportunity to practice. But I said that ten years ago. The net will cause some changes in the written language. One popular prediction is the demise of the capital "I" in favour of "i" which seems to be happening in e-mails already. I somehow doubt this prediction, though capital I is easily confused with "l" lower-case L and "1" one.

Do you remember the first days of computers when we had computer-style typefaces? ELT books still like to use these in showing computer messages which is ridiculous as technology soon allowed a great range of fonts. Computers allow italic for quotes within a text rather than "inverted commas within a text" and British books tend to use bold for speakers in dialogue. American books prefer to retain the colon, which I consider Luddite e. But in the next generation of HTML What do you think of the ELT scene in Japan?

What changes have you seen since you first arrived here? The first time I was in Japan was or , and I came every alternate year until about six years ago. I felt the country changed enormously in that period of time. Things became more westernized, but the West changed to. I can get sushi at my local supermarket in Britain not as good as the real thing, I hasten to add.

I think tinned tuna wrapped in rice rather loses the point! On my first visit I seemed to be at colleges or universities far more. I remember we foolishly volunteered to help carry the book exhibition tables downstairs together. As with everywhere else in the world, the students have changed more than the methodology. This generation has a different attitude to the more widespread education system.

There is more incentive to learn English too. It would have been on my first day at Anglo-Continental, where we always had a significant number of Japanese students. I would have taught my first all-Japanese class there too. What was good, in retrospect, was that my first meetings with Japanese people were in a social setting not a teaching situation.

I still remember private lessons from One gentleman from Sony presented me with a tiny radio that was the envy of all my friends for about three years. Then of course everyone had them. The same way that everyone else does.

I was dissatisfied with the material I was teaching. I was teaching at Anglo-Continental in Bournemouth, England. When I started there in , the school already had a research and development department and its own recording studio. His material was always funny and lively. So I always expected to write material. This policy continued when Bernie and I were testing ideas for Streamline.

Our brief was to prepare something that could be used both by very experienced teachers and by very inexperienced teachers. Streamline spawned so many other projects - higher levels, the graded reading scheme, then eventually the videos - that it became a full time occupation just after Connections was published. What aspects of course design has remained the same? The impact upon the field has been obvious and gratifying.
