Interview with Jason West of English Out There
In my interview with Jason West, the creator of English Out There, we discuss the weaknesses of traditional English schools, methodologies, and materials, and how his approach aims to overcome them. I especially enjoyed his effective, no-nonsense approach to language learning, his efforts to bridge the gap between traditional classroom-based learning and independent study, and his willingness to share before-and-after speech samples of his students.

If you enjoyed this post or have something to add to the topic, please leave a comment below. I greatly enjoy learning more about what successes and challenges other language learners have experienced. The conversations help make this a better blog for all of us. But please make sure to follow these three simple rules to help make sure this remains a shiny happy place for discussion, not a cesspool for trolling or advertising:
- Use your real name (or initials if you prefer), not your business or blog name. The latter will be considered spam and deleted accordingly.
- Language Mastery is an asshole free zone! If you want to be rude, go comment on YouTube. There's nothing wrong with disagreeing with me or other commenters, but do so in a civil fashion or your comments will be deleted and your IP address will be blocked.
- Try to keep comments related to the post topic. If you have a general question about language learning, feel free to contact me here.
