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.  You can find out information about how to follow an #ELTchat here.

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.

    How do you balance teaching for fluency and teaching for accuracy in grammar and vocabulary?this topic is suggested as food for thought on the Eve of iTDi’s course of the same title. We will, of course, need to define accuracy and fluency in the beginning of the eltchat. Although elt chats have previously dealt with wither fluency or accuracy, I don’t believe they’ve been juxtaposed this way before, so it might be fun to have a go!

  2. How can we help students to find ideas for speaking and writing activities and be more creative?

  3. A few ideas for the ELTChat:

    1. How can flashcards be used in the classroom? (just blogged about this actually)
    2. How to deal with bullying in your school.
    3. Tips and advice for summer schools.

    Looking forward to the next ELTChat session on Twitter.

    Do certificates matter? Do some teachers need the recognition to prove that they have taken part? Does it inform change?
