26 Fresh ESL Conversation Starters to Get Students Talking!

Part of it must be that because the students able to “converse” in English are better able to demonstrate their personalities, preferences, thoughts… and therefore, I get to know them better. Often it is simply hilarious to see the range of answers students feel free to share in a comfortable environment. If you’re a conversation teacher in an English as a Second Language classroom, there may be times when you feel as though you want fresh ideas, a change in routine or some way to remain slightly unpredictable so your students remain curious as to what tricks you have up your sleeves.

Always remember to keep in mind your students’ unique personalities and language learning journey, and never underestimate how engaged they can become with the right activity! Here is a list of 26 fresh ESL Conversation Starters to move your class! Enjoy! Like this: Like Loading...

20 great podcasts for busy teachers

Initially the drive used to drive me insane, but then someone put me onto some really great teaching podcasts. I found these in many ways superseded what I learnt about teaching at university becasue they were fresh, small managable chunks of information that came from real teachers in the classroom who were speaking about real life issues. The other great thing about it was that I could focus on things that really interested me and just pass on those things that didn't.

Below I have put totgether a list of 20 great podcasts from all areas of teaching that are really worth a look. Be sure to make a comment below if you feel that any others should be added.

Le corps et la voix

Depuis déjà une quinzaine d’années, des modules « corps et voix» ont vu le jour dans l'Éducation Nationale. Ces modules correspondent à une forte demande d’aide à la prise de fonction et à l’exercice de cette fonction. Ils couvrent le champ de la prévention vocale, de la communication, de la présence et de l’exercice de l’autorité.Ce travail sur la voix et le corps s’inscrit tout particulièrement dans la démarche transversale des dix compétences de savoir-être et savoir-faire. En préambule, il convient de souligner l’émergence depuis une quinzaine d’années dans le cadre de la formation des enseignants d’un ensemble de pratiques transversales qui, autour de la voix, de la prévention vocale et de la présence, sont complémentaires aux problématiques de l’autorité et de la violence à l’école.
