Including dyslexic learners in a large language class may seem very challenging, but a few simple strategies can make learning more accessible for all.

Inclusive Language Teaching – ELT well

Sometimes it is suggested that students who have a SpLD should not have to learn another language, but should instead use the time to work on their first language skills. While this policy may be well-intentioned, there are some strong arguments for everybody having the opportunity to learn another language: it seems wrong to disadvantage some students like this by insisting they remain monolingual in our increasingly global culture;for EAL/ESOL learners there is little choice but to learn English, if they are to have any independence;research suggests there are many benefits in learning another language, from improving phonological processing to facilitating a broader world view and greater tolerance of diversity and unpredictability.

There are now more than 20,400 incredible hidden wonders listed in the Atlas, and we’ve plotted each and every one of them on this interactive map. The possibilities are vast, from the Icelandic witchcraft museum to the tree goats of Morocco, to Galileo’s middle finger, to the Skeleton Lake of India and thousands of other architectural oddities, natural wonders, catacombs and crypts, and unique collections across the world’s continents and oceans.

I’ve been lucky enough to work with him on a variety of projects over the years. He was one the first online moderators on our The Consultants-E online courses, and set the standards very high indeed.

What this slice lacks in refined sugar, it makes up for in its infinite potential for hashtags: #dairyfree, #paleo, #vegan, #raw, #glutenfree, #cleaneating etc.


The only food trend – gluten free – is one I follow by force, not fashion. That being said, I secretly love health food crazes as they encourage trying new things with food. I’m not about to activate an almond or anything, but I genuinely enjoyed the added challenge of making something in a novel way. I especially enjoy how mint leaves themselves lended their colour to the green layer!
