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.


Come back & vote in our poll and join #ELTchat!

    What makes the best kind of homework for language learners?

  2. I’d be very interested in discussing teaching students outside the classroom, on local excursions, using language affordances that exist near the langage school.

  3. Kemparis Konstantinos says:

    Teachers need to know how to teach listening effectively, use technology in the classroom, give feedback, adapt materials… we all know (and talk about) that. But how about studying English? Improving our English? Mastering English? Do we give our subject matter the same importance we give all these other areas? Should we? How (often) do English teachers study English? How should we go about it?

  4. Anthony Ash says:

    Today I will begin an intensive DELTA course. A number of people I have met through ELTChat are also embarking on the DELTA.

    I would like to suggest a DELTA discussion, the title could be “what you wish you had know before beginning the DELTA”

    Sleep is for the weak ;-p
