#ELTchat Playlist for May & June 2018
May 30th 2018 Topic
Based on a request by Csilla Jaray-Benn @CsillaBenn who hopes to also introduce her trainee teachers to Twitter and hash tagged discussions:
Native and Non-Native Speaker Teachers.
Although we have held #ELTchats on some aspects of this topic in the past, it’s always a hot topic given the demand for teachers and the many non-native well qualified ELT teachers who feel discriminated upon for many of the jobs. And it has been a while since we talked about this topic!!
Here are the summaries or transcripts of previous #eltchats on the same theme
- Are there advantages to being a non-native-speaking teacher? #ELTchat transcript 08/12/2010
- Non Native English Speaker Teachers and their insecurities about teaching a language which is not their mother tongue #ELTchat summary 27/04/2011

May 16th 2018 Topic
In the past we have talked about the same topic on at least two separate occasions but today the focus is on the learner training rather than the tools which should feature – if at all – as part of helping learners become more self-driven in their efforts to acquire the foreign language.
Here are links to our past #ELTchats on the same subject
- Ways to develop learner autonomy – tips for learning outside class time. #ELTchat Summary 26/01/2011
- Learner Autonomy: Is it important? If is it, why is it and how can we promote it? #ELTchat Summary 06/02/2013
