    How To Handle Attendance Problems with adult learners

  5. Good evening,
    I have spent a couple of weeks wondering whether we, as teachers, spend too long teaching English and not enough time teaching strategies to learn language.
    Could be an interesting chat!

  6. Sure – will add this to our topics list – thanks!

    Can we skip literature in the ELT classroom. I have a hunch it wouldn’t hurt the learner.

    -> certainly controversial 🙂

  8. karim says:

    How could we teach writing as a process to young learners?

  9. karim says:

    Personally, I teach my students skill techniques like in reading skill (skimming and scanning). Also prediction technique as in pre-listening stage.etc….

  10. karim says:

    Wich is more accurate the term ‘objectives of the lesson’ or ‘learning outcomes’?

  11. karim says:

    Do the degree of smoothness of transitions between the different activities of the lesson a proof of a professional teacher? why or why not?

  12. Maria says:

    The cute things our learners say…. this would have the potential to either be a more lighthearted eltchat or lead on to discussions around language and error correction…
