  • 3240. Are You a Charismatic Teacher?

     Some useful and interesting points for today. I know about a man that used to say that the more you study something the more you like it! And that’s something we can explain to our students. The more you learn about something the more you’ll be interested on it. He had chosen the degree of Medicine, kind of by chance. However he had applied all ...

  • 3234. Our Students Like Stories!

     Reading texts in the target language is a nice and suitable activity, which one we have to exploit a lot: reading makes you learn that target language. And better if those texts are meaningful to our students. They must be meaningful and interesting to them. But also providing texts that seem not to be interesting for our students can be a ...

  • 3232. More to Boost Motivation in the Classroom

     We second or foreign language teachers have to speak massively to our students, okay. And sometimes we’ve got to make an oral presentation about some issue, okay. Something that boosts, enhances, and fosters massive speaking is… massive reading. Also for our students, before an oral exam in that target language, it could be useful to read ...

  • 3231. How to Motivate Our Students: Some Hint

     Self-motivation is adequate for learning. Of course! Some geniuses, like Edison, Einstein and Steve Jobs weren’t motivated and good at regular learning at school. Otherwise they were motivated for the knowledge areas they showed they were so good... Also we teachers have to be careful and prone to discover the areas or skills our students are ...

  • 3227. A Nice Way of Managing the Classroom

     Self-discipline. That is just necessary. It is not enough we think we can manage the classroom. It is necessary for the students to have and develop self-discipline. Yes, because only in that way they’ll set to work and learn. And self-discipline can be taught to those students. How? Well, explaining to them the advantages and necessity of ...

  • 3225. What a Motivated Person can Do!

     I know an English-language teacher that got C2 level of that language, which as you may know is the top level of a language. And with stays that were few and short in English-speaking countries. What was his secret? His attitude. Yes, just his attitude. He was eager to learn and acquire the language. He learned his English in Spain, while ...

  • 3223. Students Need to Show Themselves as They Are!

     So geniuses we were talking about. But they’re born as geniuses or they make themselves? I would say both. They find genius ideas, fine creations, they have brilliant and bright findings! And they may be encountered among our dear students... We have to facilitate creative thinking and working. For example we could let our students write ...

  • 3222. Geniuses in Our Classroom?

     Isaac Newton, Thomas A. Edison, Antoni Gaudí, John Ford, Joan Miró, Alfred Hitchcock, Steve Jobs. Geniuses, right? Well, they all were bad students. In no way do I intend to tell you that our students have to be bad ones in order to be geniuses. Those people got bored in the classroom or anyway they had problems at studying. What students of ...

  • 3220. You Committed Teachers Are Great!

     The efficient teacher… is not born, he’s a self-made man – plus the help he has received from his colleagues. He is able to make his students work and learn nice. He knows how to motivate them. And his students respect and love him, ultimately. He knows how to set a nice discipline in the classroom. But sometimes there are behavior problems – ...

  • 3210. How to Use Technologies in the Classroom
