ESL Teacher Talk

I was talking to my friend Mark from MES English the other day and we were talking about his podcast ESL Teacher Talk. I had listened to the podcast a few times before, and decided to download a new one. This time I popped it on my ipod and listened on the way to work. This episode was on TPR: Total Physical Response, and it is excellent. I listened to the podcast in the morning, and by the afternoon I was using new things I learned from it in my classes. That’s pretty cool. Check it out here.

Trying new ideas in class

As someone who develops ESl Materials, I am always trying out new things in my classes. I write a new song, and bring it to class and try it with my students. Sometimes it works well, and sometimes it falls flat : ) However, it’s this exploring, and trying, and learning with my students that I love. It keeps things fresh and keeps me going. I’m fortunate that in many of my teaching situations I have the opportunity to try new things. So if you feel yourself getting in a rut, try something new out, a new song, a new exercise, or even listen to a podcast for inspiration!
