Propose and join #ELTchat!

Please bear in mind that if you are proposing a topic you should try and join the chat if it is chosen (though time zones can make that difficult).

Please also note that the chat moderators do monitor the voting. Cases of block voting are followed up and, in such a case, the votes will be disqualified and results of poll will be announced on our blog.

Since we started #ELTchat in September 2010, 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”.

Check our summaries page to see if your idea has already been included in a past #ELTchat

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 to edit or reword a topic or not to include in the poll if it does not follow the above guidelines.

Before you propose a topic, do please check the  summaries page 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!

    Following a recent expose on language tests run by ETS in the UK, what do people feel about the current system of language testing in order to get a student visa in the UK (or in other countries)? Link:

  2. I suggest to discuss “How to teach and test listening skill”
    different techniques, procedures & strategies to present and practice a listening activity, and how to assess students’ competence in listening

    Mohamed, thank you for your suggestion but we have already done one #ELTchat on listening techniques. See the link below, read the summary and if you can suggest a different aspect on the issue of listening, we would be happy to consider it.

    The importance of active listening and how to do this in an EFL classroom.
