My name is Dan Isbell, and second languages are what I do. I only speak one second language remotely well (안녕하세요!), so rather than tell stories in my second language, I use Second Language Stories to talk about second language research , teaching, and testing. I also aim to make the blog content accessible, in terms of a public blog and the style of writing, to a wider audience than the conferences and journals that are used to communicate in academia.
