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!

  1. Kayla Wilson – @Shea_Baby92 on Twitter proposes:

    Recommendations for first year teachers in regards to ELL students

  2. Konstantinos Kemparis says:

    Do grades on degrees & teaching certificates count? Will it really make a difference having a Cambridge Celta with A or a Cambridge Delta with Distinction? After all, what’s the purpose of the existence of grades?

  3. Muhammad Emdadul Haque says:

    How can I make my colleagues enthusiastic for co-operating teaching?

  4. What can we do to get out of our ruts? We all get stuck in routines or just get to busy to try anything new. What do you do when this happens?

  5. How to help students learn from test correcting. I give them back with errors signalled, and they have to correct them themselves, but often they just take the test of the student with the best marks and copy it. I’d really like some ideas to make them learn from their mistakes.

  6. Should qualification bodies introduce certificate/diploma renewal policies? For example, how can one make sure that a CELTA or a Delta holder will remain a ‘hot’ job applicant after the completion of the course requirements?

  7. Sara Tilleman says:

    Flipped learning in English language classes – What is the best use of your face-to-face time in class?

  8. Sue Annan says:

    What’s best: separating a class by age or by level?

  9. Fabiana Casella says:

    I really liked Sue Annan´s idea: group students by age or by level?
    I had thought of something different: what do you do with FULLY unmotivated Secondary School students -17 almost 18 years old- who would not move a finger even for a good grade which would let them graduate.

  10. Hi Sue and Fabiana,

    We will have to keep these last two topics for next week’s #ELTchat

    Thank you for submitting
