Featured Resource: Bingo Basic

Bingo is a common classroom game especially in the language classroom. However, it is often a time waster (IMHO) and not very communicative at all. Best to make it whole language and functional - about communicating some meaning/idea.…

Featured Resource: Buzzword Bingo

Buzzword Bingo is a  "game" that works well for lectures or presentations but equally can be adapted by the well prepared classroom teacher. 

It's a simple concept.  Each student gets a card with prepared words in a Bingo grid.  As the lesson proceeds, students have to listen carefully and when they hear a Buzzword, cross it out on their card. The first student to…

Learn English by using a Cell Phone!

Mention cell phones to teachers and "usually" you will get a groan and see their eyes roll. You are looking for trouble!

However, many teachers are realizing that the best way to fight something is not to oppose it but rather to harness its own energy and convert that energy into learning (kind of like what judo is all about...).

Cell phones can ignite student interest and they are an amazingly powerful tool, right in the… Continue

Top 5 Warning Signs the Teacher isn't yet a Teacher

I know I'll take a lot of flak for this and I know it isn't the standard way to go when talking about "teaching" (the standard approach being to talk about what is "good" teaching), however, during my years of helping teachers, I've come upon some warning signs that set off alarm bells and signal A) the teacher really isn't fit for teaching B) the teacher has potential but really needs some "basic training".

50 tasks for teaching with only a blank piece of paper

I've always been a "constructivist", meaning that I believe especially with language, students "construct" knowledge and are active participants in the creation of what they know. They don't just swallow and file away ideas but learn through their own filter, culture, personal world as they construct from their own foundation of "knowing". 

My own basic approach for…
