Going "GIF"

I've long used gif photos in class.  They are short, action style photos that really bring to life the image shown. Powerful.

Perfect for both naming a vocabulary item and then also describing the action of that vocabulary item.  Things do things right? So as teachers we shouldn't teach vocabulary separate of the…

The Power of Getting Personal

I just read this amazing blog post about the best things a blogger can do to be successful. Amazing! (thanks Larry F.).

I'd love to sit down and have coffee with this guy. He hits many nails on the head and the point that most impressed me was "being personal". I've always championed this to…

Teaching English Magazine

I read a lot.  Part of my job as an educational consultant but also just part of who I am. I love keeping up with new stuff, trends, finding the best and most insightful knowledge on the web etc..... 

I'd like to share that with members of this community, so my leg work becomes accessible to you.  To that end, I've started a new magazine, updated daily with new items related to…

Speed Quiz

This has directions in a separate word document and they are also built into the ppt.

Essentially, it is a communicative activity where one or a group of students have a picture shown behind them ( the powerpoint)  that they cannot see and another student or students have to give them hints without using the actual word. It is an excellent way to practice vocabulary. I designed this to review vocabulary we were studying and it has a decided Korean slant, but could be changed…

Learning WITH your students!

I've always been one of the guys screaming for a more student centered focus in language instruction. Especially with such a "human" and "deep" subject as language -- a social oriented subject -- this has to be the case. We learn language by social interaction - the research is unequivical on this point. If a baby has no social interaction or little, their language skills are…

Language In Use

It is great to show and offer students many examples of English language in use. Meaning, students appreciate that there are many ways to say the same thing and like to see the "nuance" of the English language. 

Here are some images showing different ways / expressions to communicate a similar thing. Might be handy.  Also, view as a slideshow  or you can…

Going To The Dogs

I had a wonderful time last weekend playing with dogs. Nothing better than romping and running with happy go lucky dogs!  Then, phoned  my mother and we got to talking about all the dogs that have passed through our lives, each with a story.  A day going down memory lane.  

Then as coincidences will be, a teacher…

Eureka! A great post on how to teach English naturally!



I usually don't write too much about the other things I read on the web. I find for the most part, a dearth of really good writing about language and especially teaching language. Not being elitist but most often the underlying ethos is focused on delivering lessons in a "studious"…

The Power of Positive Teaching

A short reminder of how powerful a few words of encouragment can be for our students.  Often maligned, I'm one that thinks we can't praise enough -just have to do it well and purposefully. Here are a few tips I have regarding Praise in the Classroom. …

Making A Difference

One big job of any teacher is to "make a difference".  It is the small things we do that count, the day in and day out that count.  It may be invisible but we do make a difference. 

Here is a presentation / story that I play often to begin the school year or at the end for graduating teachers in…

Lesson Frameworks

A  few photos to outline some of the basic things we should think of when putting together our lessons. Over time, these don't have to be thought of consciously - they'll be automatically part of our belief system and unconscious actions as a teacher.
