ELTchat Review – Teaching Grammar and Culture

This week sees the introduction of a new feature to the podcast.  We are reporting from the ELTAM conference in Macedonia and will in future include reports from as many conferences as we can.  If you are attending a conference and would like to record a short piece then get in contact with us at the email address below and we will lend a hand.


The Twitter discussions this week focused on two key areas of teaching – grammar, and culture.  Both sessions provided a lively and informative exchange.  Shelly spoke to Martin Sketchley about grammar teaching and he filled us in on his experiences and added some useful information about the Lexical Approach.


After the second session Marisa talked to Beyza Yilmaz and she highlighted the key points of the session and illustrated them with stories from her own classroom.


There is also news about upcoming developments in the ELTchat Podcast, but for those you will have to listen in!


Happy listening!

    ELTA Albania group (14 people) enjoyed your conference very much. It was really useful and the newly assigned teachers appreciated that a lot. We all exchanged talks with almost all people there and we learned a lot from them in order for us to enhance English teaching in our country. What we appreciated most was the promotion the Ministry of Education give you as ELTAM.
    We hope that such cooperation is going to strengthen further.

    Best regards,

    Shpresa Delija
    President of ELTA Albania

    I came upon you website by chance, and enjoyed listening to the talk on grammar and culture. I teach English to foreign students at Northern Virginia Community College, and this semester, I began including culture in the teaching of grammar. I would like to know if you know of titles of books that will help me in this area.

    Thanks for your kind words. It’s great that we have so many willing contributors – that makes it a pleasure to produce.

  7. I really enjoyed the conference. There were useful topics for every English Teacher. Conferences give many opportunities to people to meet, share and exchange opinions about the same concern- English Language Teaching. It’s an opportunity to create links for future collaboration. greetings from Albania.

  8. Hope to meet again next year.
