Nativespeakerism with Meri (@the_non_native_speaker)

Nativespeakerism is a very important topic in the ELT industry.

In her debut episode Meri from @the_non_native_speaker talks to us about the stigma of nativespeakerism.

We discuss how it's important to not follow certain accounts that promote 'don't say…' posts.

Furthermore, as teachers and learners, we should be aware that non-natives have mastered another language, compared to a monolingual teacher.

Message to teachers: Let's stop with the provocative and nonsensical 'don't say' posts

Message to students: be aware of the clickbait that certain teachers produce.

Tune into this episode!
