How to Learn a Language: 7 Secrets from TED Translators

Here are some tips from TED translators which you may like to share with your students. There's a different TED video to back each indivudual point up.

Thanks to +Halina Ostankowicz-Bazan for bringing this to my attention!

If you are planning on taking a course in teaching English as a foreign language, it’s a good idea to start getting your TESOL resume in order now. Don’t wait – your TESOL resume will take a bit of planning and the sooner you get it organized, the quicker the whole job hunting process will be. Think about it; fresh off a successful course, TESOL certificate in hand, you will be keen to get teaching as soon as possible. This means that organizing ...

Check out this interview I did with Justin Murray of Real Life English. If you're looking to build a popular site for English learners, you'll get a lot from this.
 
New interview on the blog...

I talk to Justin Murray from Real Life English about how they created a popular website for English learners, what they did when Facebook deleted their popular group, how they are connecting English learners, and much more.

Check it out!

My new post on how to get your learners to do more outside of class.
 
Here is my new post where I introduce four ways to get your English learners to do more outside of the classroom.

This is what has really worked well for me, and although I focus on one-to-one lessons, these methods can be adapted for more traditional settings.
One of the biggest frustrations of teaching English is when your learners don’t do anything outside of class. When a learner starts taking lessons, they say the right things and seem motivated. But this initial enthusiasm usually disappears after a few weeks. I feel that as teachers, part of our job is to inspire our learners to do more, and to think about how we can help our learners to stay consistent over the long-term. This is something that ...

Sound stories in four parts: this is a writing activity that uses sound effects as stimuli, and gets students using their imaginations and working together to produce a narrative.
http://wp.me/p3NSi5-2q
Set it up For this activity you need to choose four sound effects and have enough pieces of paper for each of your students. It’s best if this is blank paper, but this is not essential. A selection...

A relatively short one on why longer might be better than shorter in Initial Teacher Training. Comments from teacher trainers most definitely welcome (tell me if I'm talking rubbish!)

This set of tips for presenters at conferences is as much for myself as anyone else! Good luck to anyone presenting at IATEFL (or any other conferences) this year :)
So, one of the main events in the English language teaching calendar is almost upon us: in about three weeks’ time the IATEFL Annual Conference in Manchester will be here. The exhibition hall will ...

Nope I've seen it. I can see where he's coming from, but a lot of that isn't the reason I go to IATEFL. 1) I'm a volunteer for the association, so I know what work goes into it. 2) I'm not concerned at all with the amount of books on show or whatever (haven't ever bought a course book at IATEFL). 3) I don't only go to see the 'big names'; I go to support my friends and colleagues in their sessions.

What should we use instead of practising in this sentence.
You can spend lots of time at this holiday camp practising exercise and having a great time!
should we say doing exercise or getting exercise?

If you your students have ever asked yourself a question "would a native speaker say something like this?" here is a great method for them to quickly find it out! :)
Not sure if you sound natural in a language you are learning? Create your own feedback loop! It will help you sound like a native speaker in no time.

About 4 years ago, Rachael Roberts, through her blog, introduced me to John Field and his work on listening. Which directly led to my first conference presentation. I've gone back, rewrote and (hopefully) clarified my blog post on that paper. If you are wondering if listening can truly be taught in the language classroom, you might want to give this post a look:
