Every week, propose a topic, vote in our poll and join our #ELTchat!

If you are proposing a topic, please make every effort to  join the chat if your topic  is chosen. 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 out our Summaries & Transcripts Index

Make sure your idea has not already been discussed in the past. Check our summaries page to see if your idea has already been included in a past #ELTchat. Here you can find links to all the transcripts and summaries available Click here to find it or look for it on the pages menu on the right hand side. 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! Read those great posts which we have collected and make sure you visit the pages of the bloggers who contributed them too!!!!

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.


Editing your topic

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.

See you on #ELTchat on Wednesday!!!

    In his Q&A session on Saturday, Sugata Mitra posited that ELT teachers may be insecure of their place and position in the world. This seems like a good topic for a chat

  2. I would possibly suggest ONE of the following topics:

    1. The Role of the Cohesive Group in the EFL Classroom
    2. Are EFL/ESL teachers required to conduct effective research?

  3. If my previous topics have not made you intrigued, I would propose the following one, please:

    – Online Peer Assessment/Evaluation

  4. Marisa says:

    Putting all the topic suggestions on ice for next week’s poll – this #ELTchat has been cancelled

  5. Marjorie Rosenberg says:

    Are seemingly inefficient approaches to teaching helping our students as Kathleen Graves suggests? Or do we need to look into improving our efficiency in the classroom?

  6. Hada says:

    While some totally reject MI and NLP altogether, others express ‘heavy-duty scepticism’ but some believe they’re essential to analyse students’ needs. Were NLP and MI ever essential to plan a good lesson?
