Help Us, Help Others

I'm extremely proud of EFL Classroom 2.0 - our members, our supporters, just the fact that we've created a place helping thousands upon thousands of teachers (and by default students), in every corner of the world. 

Every day, teachers download thousands of resources, stream thousands of videos/presentations - all for free. And I've made it my agenda to try my best to keep things fresh,…

Disappointed Books

Books will always be with us and like poetry, will be valued more as they become less... They are personal and secret things - therein lies their power.

I'm busy writing another one, always busy with "the word". Today, looking at my book shelves and feeling good that I have my books together in one place. Been traveling the world for a lot of years and they sat in boxes so long.

I say this by way of introducing this wonderful video - The Diary Of A Disappointed Book. It makes…

Jan. 18th - We Protest

On January 18th, we are going to go "off" like a few sites on the internet - in protest of SOPA, an American act of congress that has the potential to clog up information on the internet. 


Our world benefits from the free flow of ideas and information through the internet. SOPA is a cruel and essentially crude money grab. A clinging to old ideas in a new age. These same corporate interests saying they have suffered from "theft" are themselves the biggest thieves and pirates…

Language Starters / Prompts

One of the major skill sets of a great language teacher is the ability to "prompt" students so they will generate language.

It isn't easy and with time a teacher becomes better at replying, prompting, leaving unfinished, their utterances so that students are put into a position of "having to communicate". It is a skill that even gets more refined as the teacher adapts and scaffolds at just…

To The Unknown Teacher

These few meager, to the bone words, go out to all the teachers who are "unacknowledged", under the radar in their magnificence.

I'm sure we can all name many of them. They support us, encourage us. They don't make a big splash, aren't particularly memorable but they "get the job done" - the job being to nurture the diamond in all students, to polish it, to make it believe in itself and…
