What would you like to talk about on #ELTchat on September 14th?

Time to Vote

Please post your topics for our next #ELTchat on Wednesday, September 14th. The highest polling suggestions from last week that were not chosen will automatically be added to this week’s poll but is there anything else that you think might make a good topic for Wednesday’s chat!

Top choice will be discussed at 21.00 BST & 2nd choice at 12.00 BST

All times are British Summertime times. Each week we alternate top and second choice.

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!

    Reading aloud in class – do you do it and why to do it?

    ‘affective teaching’ or ‘effective teaching’: which shoes should we wear?

  3. David Petrie says:

    How about using poetry / poems in the classroom? Why and how?

  4. I like the one with the poetry.

    This might be a bit personal but I would like to discuss the characteristics of a good language school. What makes a good private / public language school? How to recognise a purely commercial language school? How to make this information accessible to potential candidates?

    We could extend on the topic – how can Engish teachers who are non-native speakers of English choose the right course /language school to improve their own language proficieny?

    • HI Natasha! I also loved the poetry questions but, unfortunately, it didn’t seem to be so popular this time!

      The second topic looks interesting – could you please go to the latest ‘topics’ post and copy paste it there?
