ELF Communications is a research-oriented website that aims to showcase the work of academics, writers, and researchers from around the world in English.
We have materials from prominent people in their fields of study from various countries around the world, including Japan, the USA, Australia, France, The Netherlands, The Philippines, the UK, Greece, the Caribbean, Portugal, Sweden, and Saudi Arabia.
The varieties of English from the so-called 'Inner Circle' countries are often over-represented, and we would like to give students access to varieties of English they don't often have the opportunity to hear with materials on philosophy, linguistics, mathematics, art, language teaching, and more.
All our materials include a transcript of the interviewee and time codes to help you navigate the interviews more easily. The interviews are around 10 minutes each and include 5-6 questions about the person's background, research activities, publications, and future plans.
This website can also be accessed by smartphone or tablet to make the experience more convenient.
We hope you enjoy the materials and learn something new while widening your English listening horizons. .

2. CHRISTOPHER GARETH HASWELL, Reinvestigating the experiences of teachers and their teaching assistants at internationalized Japanese universities, 九州大学言文論究, 44, 2020.03, This paper reports the findings of a follow-up project to a study investigating university programs in Japan which utilize international students as teaching assistants (TAs). It included both the TAs and teachers from these programs. The previous study upon which this project was based concluded that while there were both professional and personal benefits to undertaking the role of TA, programs utilizing international students as TAs had yet to attain all the potential advantages of these students’ employment. By informing the participants of this project of the earlier findings, the intent was to clarify and elucidate the original conclusions. Interviews with 31 international student TAs from Kyushu University and Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (APU) and 17 teachers from APU were transcribed and analyzed for similarities in the comments. The results suggest the programs at the two universities are providing important personal and professional experience for the TAs, but the program could be further expanded to assist the goals of both the university and the TAs themselves..
