Language wrap is a long-awaited, much needed update to Jon Meier’s Language Sandwich.  I created the original site around 2004.

Things have moved on since then. The aim is to cover my main areas of professional expertise and interest: Media, Languages and Classroom Practice

I can’t remember how much time I spent building the old site. Needless to say, I did not see my 2 young kids for several weeks.

Anyway the new site brings together resources which I have written over several years. The aim is to provide some high quality free content and to introduce some paid-for content later.
