4 Common Misconceptions that Beginner English Teachers Have

So you’re traveling abroad to a non English-speaking country, and you have an English teaching job all lined up. Once you get settled into your new home, you’re thinking that your life will be pretty easy.

After all, you’re an expert at speaking English — you’ve been doing it all your life! How hard can it be to teach? Surely, after the first couple lessons, you’ll get the hang of things quickly. And after a few hours of teaching each day, you’ll have plenty of free time to explore your new country and work on your own foreign language skills.

Teaching English is rewarding, but not as easy as some would think. Check out these 4 myths that set the record straight.

SEO in Different Languages for Marketing in 2015

Search engine optimization (SEO) is something many marketers, web designers and data miners consider an “American thing”—or at least an English thing. However, SEO bridges language differences, cultural variances and seeps into every aspect of websites (or at least it should!) and website rankings. As a quick reminder, SEO is a set of evolving best practices that dictates where a website “ranks” in a search engine based on the website’s key phrases and keywords.

For example, if you Google “ice cream shop San Diego,” there’s a reason certain shops come up at the top of Google rankings: SEO. Likewise, if you Google “helado Chihuahua,” certain ice cream parlors in Chihuahua, Mexico will come up (and hopefully not Chihuahua-flavored ice cream).

German is world's fourth most popular language

After 15 years of research and a 1,300 page book on the subject, sociolinguistics professor Dr. Ulrich Ammon found that German is surprisingly popular with language learners all over the world.

Professor Ammon found that German is only ranked tenth globally in terms of native speakers, of which there are around 104 million, but is ranked fourth in terms of non-native speakers who have learnt the language.

The only larger languages in terms of learners are English, French and Mandarin, he told Deutsch Welle.

"People get the impression that when you learn German, you are gaining access to countries that are flourishing economically, which in turn brings better career opportunities as well as education and training." he said

Are Fillers Okay to Use When, Um, Learning a Foreign Language?

Fillers are everywhere: they’re the ums, uhs, and likes that sneak their way into our speech, often times without us even realizing it. Indeed, fillers, also known as disfluencies, carry no semantic value, but they are used abundantly in natural speech, and are different in each language.

Despite the bad rap that fillers get from schoolmarms and speech coaches, it’s important for language learners to acquaint themselves with the fillers in their language of study — nothing gives you away as a foreigner quite like saying, “Yo quiero, um, un helado.”

#foreigner #language #fillers
Learning fillers in your language of study will actually make your speech more fluent. Curious to, um, see how?

Les écoles suisses à l’étranger songent à l’apprentissage

Des perspectives prometteuses s’ouvrent pour les écoles suisses à l'étranger. La nouvelle loi crée des bases pour élargir l'offre à l'apprentissage, un modèle qui suscite un intérêt croissant en-dehors des frontières. Mais il faudra du temps et des efforts pour atteindre les buts souhaités.

French exams kick out les cliches

An exam board wants GCSEs in modern languages to escape outdated vocabulary and implausible conversations about holidays, the weather and zoo visits.

The youth-friendly OCR French, German and Spanish exams would introduce topics such as tattoos and festivals. It would mean getting rid of vocabulary such as tank tops and pencil cases. "Students are not really going to meet somebody in a cafe in Paris and describe their entire family," a teacher told the OCR exam board.

The exam board's draft plan for new-look GCSEs for England, submitted to exam regulator Ofqual for approval, is intended to bring a more contemporary quality to modern languages.

It wants to escape a feeling that language lessons are trapped in time by moving away from themes such as "Aurelie and Fabian go to town" or "Mathilde's school day".

Le tagueur s'excuse pour son orthographe

Le tag, passé inaperçu en Suisse, a fait sourire la Haute-Savoie. Le Dauphiné libéré de ce lundi s’amuse beaucoup d’un tagueur «poli» et soucieux de son orthographe.

L’auteur du message mural a ainsi inscrit «A force de gagner ta vie, tu l’as perds» sur les murs de la capitale vaudoise. Puis, réalisant sa bévue, il a ajouté «pardon pour l’orthographe» sous sa première phrase… se rendant ainsi coupable d’une seconde entorse à la langue française, mais faisant honneur au savoir-vivre des graffeurs vaudois.

The seven big language learning issues facing the UK

From the impact on the economy to community cohesion, a new report explores Britain’s relationship with multilinguilism

Despite the UK’s pivotal role on the global stage and its melting pot of cultures, the country remains largely a nation of monoglots. But what is holding back Brits from learning a foreign language?

The Guardian and the British Academy launched the Case for Language Learning to investigate the reasons behind the UK’s shortage of foreign language skills, discussing the importance and value of learning a foreign tongue. The Living Languages report highlights many of the debates and thinking generated by the two-year project, and brings together some of the dominant themes.
