Third class

Hello, hello!!

Yesterday we started dealing with Task Based Language Teaching. We dealt with chapters 1 and 2. This time you worked in groups, arranged according to your birthday dates. I must say that you all worked very well and at a very good pace. Still, it would be even more enriching if you all read the material for each class. I know you all have a lot on your plate, but I must insist on the importance and the benefits of keeping updated with the reading.

For next class you must read chapter 3. You must also do the reflection tasks on pages 31 and 35 and post them in your blog. You have time until next Thursday to do so.

We also mentioned that the likely date for the First Term Test is June 22nd.

As soon as I post this I'll start checking your newly created blogs and adding them to my list of blogs, so you all have access to all the blogs.

And now yes, I leave you to

About yesterday, homework and YOUR BLOGS!!

Hi there!!!

Yesterday we had our second class (only second!!)... You got in groups (divided by favorite colours) and worked on a questionnaire on Teaching Styles. All the groups worked very effectively and enrichingly... At the end of the class, we shared the answers...

For next class (Thursday 27th April)), you have to read chapters 1 and 2 on Task Based Language Teaching, by David Nunan.

Also for next class, you have to create your own blog!! Some things to take into account:

  • you can do it individually or in pairs 
  • for next class you just have to publish a welcome sign (you can make your own sign or you can use an image from internet)
  • you will have to post something at least once a week (somethimes I will give you specific instructions and sometimes you will have complete freedom to decide what to post)
  • the blog must be related to our subject, but you can decide whether it will include material only on teaching English or on other topics too (you can decide to post information and material for your students, or for other teachers of English or for anyone who loves the English language)
Here you have a tutorial on how to do it (there are A LOT of tutorials in YouTube, you can use this on or any other that you prefer)

Now I say goodbye
