Default Better Language Teaching


Activities:
  • Do you struggle to come up with original, interesting, and challenging ideas?
  • Do you find yourself repeating the same few activities again and again?
  • Do you want more flexibility in your activities, allowing for more dynamic classes?
  • Do you simply want to replenish your teaching bag of activities and games?

Better Language Teaching has 100 activities plus more than 50 variations!

Better Language Teaching

You can never have too many activities at your fingertips. You can never have too many variations. With a simple tweak or two, the students can practice, reuse, and reinforce the language. Flexibility, fun, and interesting are a few more must-haves.

Oh, and they must be easy to understand and quick to implement.

Better Language Teaching

I'll be honest. That's only 50% of the equation. Activities still need firm application of methods and techniques to get your students communicating.

Better Language Teaching has the following inside:
  • Effective methods for sound lesson structure.
  • The importance of Warm Ups for students.
  • The importance of adequate reinforcement early in the lesson for improved language production later.
  • How mistakes can indicate risk and experimentation by the students... good things!
  • How a student-centered class develops problem-solving skills for successful speaking.
  • The learning styles of students, and how that affects their approach to language acquisition.
  • How to effectively present and practice the lesson material.
  • How to set up groups and pairs, and move between the two, for reuse of the language.
  • The important balance between Teacher Talk Time and Student Talk Time.
  • What constitutes effective and ineffective speaking opportunities.
  • Methods and techniques for effective correction.
  • And much, much more!
There's so much more to say... You can learn more here:
