Controversial quotes about teaching English..... for our EFL 2.0 Family!



I recently came across this great blog post about Six highly provocative quotes in ELT, from the 6 things blog.



I love a good aphorism and though these are all thought provoking, they somewhat lack the punch and umphapha that Nietzsche would have imagined. I guess that is par…

Faking it

Today, my "much better half" insisted that our dog Chico could understand Korean. She showed me how he could understand Korean and sit and stay, even give paw. I had a good chuckle.


Not much different to many teachers who believe their students understand them in the classroom! Chico, like so many students, was great at "faking it". Doing the right thing for the wrong reason.…

Getting your students TALKING - some strategies.

I remember when first confronted with a "silent" class. They were really passive and not willing to speak. After lots of trial and error I finally came into class gagged! (yes, I was brash and bold in those days!). I…

Textbook Snake Oil

I came across this teacher training video as part of my "morning browse".

Browsing and surprising myself is something I do almost every day to rid myself of the tyranny of the web, a semantic 3.0 web that imprisons us by allowing us to see only what we might like or have an interest in.

To avoid this "tunnel vision", I browse. I will google something that comes…

Lessons for teachers from "The King's Speech"

kings One of the nice things about the small city I moved to recently, is that it has a wonderful theater downtown, minutes from my house. Every Sunday, they have a $5 showing and tonight they showed "The King's Speech". Great movie, highly recommend it despite my aversion to "period pieces", especially British ones! Go see it and if you are in the mood, think about the lessons that it might have for us teachers.…
