Now that you've done that - note that these are the "Wondergirls", a Korean girlband phenom. They are being interviewed in America. Watch the first 50 seconds and pause the video (below). Then, check the order again.



Now, watch the… Continue

Having "teacher" Endurance

I get asked a lot, "how do you do so much?" or am labeled, "the hardest working ELT teacher". I'm always somewhat lost as to how to respond. Baffled really. I guess I'm a fish that knows nothing about the water I swim in!



You see, I just do. I don't think much but rather when an idea comes, I…

Catchy song

Just by pure chance (via twitter) I came across this catchy song a few days ago. Someone twittered this video about the misfortunes of a young squirrel, it's such a nice and encouraging, inspirational, motivational video that I immediately decided to use it for my classes; besides, it's subtitled and commented, it's perfect! But after a few minutes my attention was drawn to the music, the lyrics and the…

Learning Korean Online

As a native speaking English teacher I still have a hard time putting myself in the students' shoes. The best way to put myself in their shoes is to study a second language. I don't have time except my office hours to study. Fortunately there is a good site to learn Korean online. I'm studying for Seogang University online and it's free. In some ways studying online is better than the class. I can study on my own pace, have 100% interaction and meet at my own time. Here is the like to the…

What makes a classroom fit to live in?

faludy_gyorgy With the events in Egypt unrolling these past days, my mind has been on them and also on the wider question, what makes a "liveable" country?
