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!

Please, include topics which


  • have not been covered already in previous #ELTchats

    I would just ask, has eltchat ever dealt with teaching phrasal verbs as a topic? Some teachers and coursebooks treat them as a grammar topic, others say they are just vocabulary terms. If you agree it’s worth discussing, I promise to take part.

  2. No, we haven’t, dear Mary – a good topic (and perhaps we could talk about other language areas as well in future)

  3. ELT jargon has become a language on its own. Does mastering it make us better teachers, or should we invest our Professional Development time in improving our practice?

  4. Is there a difference in professional development and teacher development? If so, what is the difference and do we need both?
