English is the lingua franca of science and academics. Writing in English opens your research to a wider audience of students and researchers, but for many of us, English is not our first language. Instead, academic English may be a second, third, or even fourth language for students and researchers, which presents a unique set of challenges.

In this episode, Clayton is joined by his Fulbright colleauge, Seth Trovao, to discuss the value of international educational exchanges, second language learning, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), and using English as a Second Language (ESL) to communicate research. With shared educational backgrounds in English language instruction, Clay and Seth offer ideas and advice on how to approach developing your Academic English.
