La Gran Vía in Madrid

The one street you shouldn't miss on your trip to Madrid is the Gran Via, a showcase of early 20th century architecture, according to this site. This big avenue celebrates its 100th birthday and the most important Spanish paper has developed a nice application, it's in Spanish though, sorry.

Using the Guinness World Records Book as course content!

I am writing today about something I STRONGLY feel. Not stepping on anyone's toes in particular but forgive my own passion in advance. Today, I'd like to publicly advocate my detest with textbooks and in particular, the gross deficit of thought, creativity, respect for learners, price gouging, addiction and lack of reality that most, if not all, are stamped with.

I've been around the block.

I'll say it again, I've…

The #1 ..... (vocabulary website for Young Learners).

Number One ** Not your ordinary endless list - just what's number 1. Just the BEST.


There are so many great websites for teaching young learners. See a list of my own below (culled from my big list, also attached). However, after our own resources here (always got to toot our own horn!). KinderSay is next in line.

It has wonderfully colorful images and rich, clear audio.… Continue

ehow - Lessons on "How to"

eHow is a video site with rich, user created video about "How to " do things. It also has lists and writing about "How to" but I find the videos most useful in class. It has grown after absorbing the site I loved and wrote about previously - Expert Village.

Some topics that have sterling video here are: arts and crafts (paper folding/origami for example),… Continue

Culturally Specific Content

I recently gave a lecture titled, "Korean Content for Korean Students", highlighting my contention that given the new educational environment (a global village, a wired world), we need to use more local and culturally specific content in our teaching/lessons. I focused on Korea but the ideas are applicable to whatever the foreign context, wherever you are. Find readings to support this presentation… Continue

Using Authentic Resources - Videos

In the last few years, one of the biggest changes for language teachers is our access to authentic materials. The world now comes to us and especially videos! It is much easier now for teachers to find "real English" on video. This article highlights many aspects of using authentic materials with our students. Authenticity in the EFL classroom

Authentic speech and listening is essentially…

An Injustice in Spain

The NYT has published an editorial today that I feel I have to share in every international forum I'm involved in, well as a matter of fact, most social websites, facebook, twitter and a couple of Spanish ones.

I don't need to add anything to the matter. In fact, the NYT says quite the words I would say, so what's the…

A Classroom's Hierarchy of Needs

A Classroom’s Hierarchy Of Needs

I just got home after a morning of observing two classrooms. One was wonderful, a place that all students would long to be in. One was dreadful, a place that students would only just barely tolerate and where one student actually said, when asked to make a metaphor using the word school, “School is jail”.

What made them different? On the face of it they were both… Continue

22 Frames - subtitles galore! If you've followed my posts/passion for awhile, you will know I'm a HUGE fan of subtitled supported video. I've helped quite a few online sites in this area as well as highlighting so much TTS (text to speech) here and also through Karaoke. HERE is a lot of the subtitled video you'll find on EFL Classroom 2.0. But so much more than these too!

So it is with… Continue

One Heart

One heart you are following...

You can run

And you can begin

In a place

Where you don't fit in

'Cause love will find a way

When you're down

You can start again

Turn around

Anything you're in

Love will find a place

If you got...

One heart you are following

One dream that keeps you wandering

Love lights your way through the night

One wish that keeps you trying

What's your silver lining

An Education

A must-see. I guess I should have added this film to the "best films about education" discussion but it deserves a better place. Don't misunderstand me, I'm just trying to call your attention.

Great acting, interesting coming-of-age story and nice soundtrack too. In the post-war, pre-Beatles London suburbs, a bright schoolgirl is torn between studying for a place at Oxford and the rather more exciting alternative offered to her by a charismatic older man. The script has been…

Interesting website

Today is the last day of relative liberty, Easter holidays end tomorrow. I wanted to share this site before it's too late. I'm sure I 'll forget about it soon. You can visit the site here. Hope you like it. There are some good reading and listening activities for both elementary and advanced students.

Animations that raise student consciousness

I really admire any teacher that "stretches" the mind of their students. YES, we teach English but further, a teacher should embody "praxis" which is to promote committed action in their students, promote their questioning about the world around them.

A second language offers a wonderful "mask" and opportunity to question all the assumptions we automatically don and wear in our lives. WHY? Well, free, unrooted thought, like that of a child,… Continue

Cullen's ABCs

I really love Cullen's ABCs! If you teach Young Learners, you have to watch her Youtube videos where she instructs teachers how to do the motions/hand movements for many songs for young learners.(along with SuperSimpleSongs, she's the next best! I came to know about her after using a video of hers for a… Continue
