Dear Parents,

Here is my take on the process of doing a situational writing question, complete with the updated "Formal vs Informal Writing Comparison Chart" (according to the new requirements for signing off from SEAB) AND the Lil' Steps to Success Revision card for this component.
With such limited time left, I hope your children will be able to find some tips which will make a difference to their writing and aid them in boosting their confidence smile emoticon go score!
After some Q & A for situational writing in the previous post, I believe a walkthrough on the process of doing situational writing is in order. A lot of children neglect the preparation process before doing the actual writing and this often results in missing information or a disorganised piece of writing. Before we dwell into the process, let's have a better understanding of the requirements for content and language for this componen...

Hi!! My mind has gone blank. I need to prepare something to review grammar for my pre-university students and I can't think about anything motivating, fun and engaging, far from the blank-filling exercises. I am talking about tenses: present simple, perfect and continuous, past simple, perfect and continuous, future with will, going to, future perfect and continuous... Basically every tense.

Mistake and prescriptive language vs common usage and descriptive language. Commonly English teachers teach "right" and "wrong", "correct" and "incorrect". When they should really be teaching common and uncommon, signifier and signified, described meaning and understood meaning.

If you work as a freelance ESL teacher, I bet you know how frustrating it is to have an income that is up one month, and down the next.

Hot Potato! 5 Fact-paced ESL Classroom Games Using a Kitchen Timer

Who knew that a simple kitchen timer could be a revelation for the ESL classroom?

Who would have guessed that the small countdown device that dings when food is cooked could be the cornerstone to wonderfully fun ESL games?

But it does. You’ll be amazed at how your classroom could benefit and how easily you can use these games in your repertoire.

You may be wondering now “Hey, Chris, what games are these exactly? I must know!” and I’ll explain it all and give you the rules, benefits and some examples of each.

But first, let me give a brief introduction on the timer. It’s a simple device, no bigger than a small box of dental floss, but it has such an impact that it will floor you. I prefer to use the small simple ones with the easy-to-set timer and the loud, signature “get your chicken out of the oven” beeping.

Now, you may be thinking “Hey, Chris, my phone has a timer, can’t I just use that?” Sure. The reason I prefer using a timer, as you will later see, is to build suspense and to create an experience. The constant clicking of a handheld timer seems to add some tension which is great for competition.

A little more on that later, let’s go on to the games, shall we?

Here are five simple yet rewarding games you can easily play in your classroom!

Have you ever thought of using Pinterest to help you grow your ESL freelance business? What worked for you? What is working for you, if you're using social media?

#ESL #TESL #freelance  
This is a guest contribution from Marie-Eve Vallieres. Nobody puts Pinterest in a corner. With 73 million users (85% of which are females), an expanding presence outside the United States and upcoming buyable pins, this social media platform/search engine is now more powerful and sophisticated than ever.
