How to choose topics for #ELTchat Discussions

Since we started #ELTchat last September, we have discussed a wide number of topics, but with many new members joining our conversations every week, it is very natural that we will get requests for topics which we “have done”.

Please, include topics which

  • have not been covered already in previous #ELTchats
  • are relevant to ELT teachers and teaching foreign languages
  • are not targeted attacks on individuals or institutions
  • are simply and clearly expressed.

The #ELTchat moderators reserve the right not to post comments or to include them in the poll if they do not follow the above guidelines.

Before you propose a topic, do please check the transcripts index on this blog or go to the #ELTchat wiki and click on the Transcripts or Summaries Links to see what has been covered so far.

If you see your topic but would still like to discuss a different aspect or set of issues, do submit it and we will consider including it again!

Time to Vote!!!!

  1. Apologies in advance to any topic that has been repeated. Here is my suggestion:

    What speaking is more important to teach, conversation or situational English?

  2. Sue Annan says:

    Using a rolling syllabus makes it difficult to integrate old and new students on the first day. What tips do you have to aid the process?

  3. well, my turn to raise a problem I face in the country where I teach (I’m sure most of us often face it and probably it has been mentioned before), how can we manage parents whose children show difficulties in learning, due to learning disabilities or other factors, children with disruptive behaviour in class, are we the ones who should inform parents, should there be specialists visiting each class now and then, let the DOS do their job ??(we all know what that means). I really don’t know what teachers in other countries do , are they allowed to interfere? I’m really sorry for the long comment but the questions come so naturally…..
    Thanks for listening to me

    Sorry. For those who don’t have rolling syllabi : an ongoing programme where students can arrive at any point and join an existing class.

  5. Elisavet Stylianou says:

    Being a native/non-native English teacher: how does it affect one’s teaching, relations with students/other teachers etc, and do you see it as an advantage/disadvantage?

  6. Neil McMahon says:

    How about:

    Do you encourage extensive reading among your students and how do you go about it?
