Swiftian Common Sense - Fire all English Teachers!

The following really is "common sense" but it might shock you. So be forewarned. What follows might tug at your very nature and deep ingrained notions of who you are and what you do / teach.



I propose that the best way to get students to learn English is to fire all teachers.



Yeah, you heard me right - fire all English (as a language) teachers. Or, in order to make the transition easier, phase in the layoffs and shift those with…

My Favorite Xmas Lesson

This is my favorite Christmas lesson. I've taught this lesson it seems, a zillion times. Works with all levels. I call it "Gift Giving".

It is a great way to close out lessons for the holiday break. 

Basically, it is groups of students giving each other Christmas gifts that are cut outs provided by…

The Work-Life Split When Being a Teacher

As a teacher, you’re not supposed to share your personal life with your students, at least not anything beyond what they already know about life in general and what they consider to be pretty unmeaningful in the grand scheme of life (your marriage, your eating, your drinking coffee). Heck you should hide from them the fact you have bowel movements.

The same precaution should be applied to fellow teachers and…

We Keep What We Give

web20

I'm a confirmed, addicted, "sharer". Been that way for years and I'm sure its caused it share of incredulity. Many people just don't operate on and of the same mental construct - believing as I do that knowledge is not something created nor owned. It is air and for all. But that is okay - the world is beautiful because it is made of so many who are different. There is room for all of us.

Strategize Your Selection of An English School Today!

When selecting a school to work at, select a school that has upward mobility. A school that has what you want. Some of these schools don’t have upward mobility, whatsoever. Some of them are just very structured. They’re government jobs. And you work the same position year after year, doing the same things. Many don’t even allow innovation within the classroom, so you can’t even grow beyond the old models of teaching. How does that sound? Sounds like a slow and…

How to Plan Your Lesson to Suit Yourself

We’ve reached a point in time where you can almost always avoid reinventing the wheel.

Memory games are spectacular for getting the students off your back, particularly in countries where raw human-derived memorization is considered the path to success. This is why people love talking to parrots.

Getting the students to stretch their memories is an easy task to give them.…
