  • 3409. Are You Curious about What You Teach?

    Non-native teachers that teach English for example – or another language – have to maintain that tongue alive and fresh. How? By reading books or e-books in that language plus listening to a radio station on the Internet.  As well a learner of a second or foreign language can learn and acquire it by reading and studying grammar books and the ...

  • 3404. Helping the Class with Sense of Humor

    Communication. That’s the goal. That’s the main objective for our lessons.  We second or foreign language teachers and teachers in general have to direct our classes to set nice communication among us the teacher and the students.  Thus we will not use the students’ language too much: we will tend to use the target tongue massively, turning to ...

  • 3348. Our Students Like Stories!

     Reading simplified and abridged readers can boost learning the foreign or second language, okay. When reading those readers the learner faces a communication problem to solve: he has to understand… and enjoy the novel or the non-fiction book. When we people face a communication problem to solve, we learn the language more quickly, even we ...

  • 3344. Creating a Nice Atmosphere in the Classroom

     So we teachers must create immersion in the target language in the classroom. But I do use our common mother language too! With some of the groups! The ones with lower level of English (the target language). Am I doing wrong? Maybe the key thing is creating an atmosphere where English is widely used and the students are exposed to that marvelous ...

  • 3343. Smartphones in the Future Will Be like...

     I’ve been insisting that the main point about teaching/learning a foreign or second language is for communication. Short ago I’ve also been having a look at the mobile or cell phones evolution. Can you remember the first mobile phones of the 90s? The picture above gives a view to the evolution of those devices that serve the purpose of ...

  • 3323. Our Job as Teachers Is Simply Great

     I was thinking, you know, we teach and learn languages for communication among people, and that’s so great so great, but not only for communication. A language supports also culture, literature, metaphors in that tongue… Something else: Think how it would be if we knew English and Spanish! I mean, they’re two of the languages most widely used on ...

  • 3318. La belleza de la profesión de maestros

     Es una maravilla poder expresarme en castellano o español y en inglés. Ayer leí en algunos sitios webs que el castellano o español es la tercera lengua de Internet: inglés, chino y español serían las tres lenguas más utilizadas en la Red. Y todo es cuestión de ponerse. De ponerse a aprender un idioma, si tienes tiempo y constancia. Modestamente ...

  • 3314. Communicating in the Target Language

     I’ve told you all that I keep on learning English. Learning a language is life-long, I can assure you. Something I carry out for my own learning that language is reading for example a novel. In some way reading a novel in English and enjoying it is like being in a country where English is spoken. As well our foreign or second language classroom ...

  • 3301. First Is People Then Language

     Learning and acquiring English as a foreign or second language demands an immersion atmosphere in that language, okay. But if our students need some encouraging words in their native language, it’s okay to do it so, in their mother tongue. Also they may need some small laughing, so as to break the ice, and that may be done in the mother language ...

  • 3299. From All Five Continents!

     I was thinking of when I started my career as a teacher. Now I would do things differently from then. For instance I’d carry out my lessons in English, the target language, and I’d implement a communicative approach to teaching. And I’d treat my students more humanly than then. Practice and experience make things different, so different. The ...
