Hi everyone!

I wanted to let you know that on Thursday I'll be absent. As I told you last class, I'm really sorry, but I could not change the appointment...

So we'll meet again on June 5th. For that day, remember to complete the questionnaire on teaching styles, and read chapters 1 and 2 on TBLT, by Nunan.

Take care and see you soon!

Third class

Hello everyone!

On Thursday we had another class. We spent most of the time learning how to create a blog, how to take advantage of the options of design and how to use voki.

We also finished discussing the chapter on popular methods and I handed out a questionnaire to be completed using the chapter on teaching and learning styles.

So, for homework you have to:

  • create a blog and publish a welcome note.
  • if possible, create a voki and embed it in the blog
  • complete the questionnaire mentioned above
  • if possible, read chapters 1 and 2 on TBLT by David Nunan

Second class

Hi there!

Yesterday we had our second class. Students got in groups determined by birthdays and then they -you, in fact- worked on a chapter which provides a revision of the most popular methods that have been used to teach English. Groups worked actively and enthusiastically and some very interesting reflections followed.

Next class we'll be working on chapter 13, by Cook, on different teaching and learning styles. Also, next class we'll start working on our blog-project.

Oh, and try watching the presentation now... I've changed the configuration and I think it will be available to all
