TEFL Business English and Second Life

In connection with a presentation for BESIG Berlin I went to Second Life to meet Gavin Dudeney, Project Director, The Consultants-E EduNation ll , where he has his corporate office. In the interview we talked about TEFL and Business English in the context of Second Life.

After showing me round the building, Gavin gave us a quick tour of the island and then we returned to his office to do the interview. (For technical reasons we later left the office and did the bulk of the interview on Skype).

The sound quality is by no means perfect, but I think it can be listened to comfortably.
