Tips and resources for teaching English – English with effervescence It’s always a rewarding activity to find up-to-date materials that could increase students’ and pupils’ motivation in learning and applying new things in English classes. I integrate technology into lessons with the aim of teaching young learners of English that the internet could be used for a variety of beneficial and valuable activities apart from chatting or scrolling through Facebook to see what everybody else is up to, browsing others’ profiles or news shared (in their native language) on social networking sites. In Hungary (where I live and work) only few primary schools are supplied with smartboards and few are capable of giving tablet computers into children’s hands to educate them how to create content or how to use the internet for learning.

Christmas gift-bringers of Europe Santa Claus is relentlessly trying to enter our European households (mostly through our mailboxes rather than chimneys), but Father Christmas, Baby Jesus, Grandfather Frost, and other traditional gift-bringers have managed to fend him off so far (well, sort of). Each country (or region) has its own traditional Christmas gift-bringer. Some of them are quite nice, such as the British Father Christmas, others are outright weird, such as the Catalan “defecating log”, but all of them are equally interesting. The following map shows the gift-bringers’ names with translations, coloured by relatedness of the concepts themselves (that is, not by etymological relatedness of the names). Please note that some of the stripes and gradients may not represent the actual geographical distribution completely accurately; they just show general geographical trends. In Dutch: Kerstman, Christmas Man In French: Père Noël, Father Christmas
Teaching ELL: Speaking Strategies Being able to speak English fluently is critical to our ELLs’ success both inside and outside the classroom. ELLs must pass a speaking portion of a language proficiency assessment to score out of ESOL services and be fully immersed in mainstream classes without support. We always see a number of students, from every cultural background, who are too shy to speak up in the classroom or to answer a question, even when they have the answer. These strategies help all students improve their language development in a supportive, encouraging way. At the end of the list are some strategies specific to helping ELLs acquire and use oral language. Model language by saying aloud and writing the ideas and concepts you’re teaching.

Tools You Need Waze Navigation & Live Traffic on the App Store I had been using Waze for about a year and LOVED IT!! But since the most recent IOS update, it continually is “searching for GPS” and looking for language (I still speak English 😉). I went to my cellphone provider, then Apple, and logged off of Waze to see if the app would reset itself and be fixed. This didn’t work. I even did a total reset of my phone, and nothing worked on Waze and Google (who owns Waze). I then contacted Waze, but got nothing but constant/obvious automated answers back that stated things to do that I already started I HAD ALREADY DONE and listed in my email.
81 Satirical Illustrations Show Our Addiction To Technology Modern technologies have definitely benefited our lives - from medical care to work efficiency, communication to space exploration, offering solutions to our world problems. And we just couldn't imagine our lives without it any longer. But with great benefits come many disadvantages. With the rise of the Internet, smartphones, and other similar devices, we are permanently connected to the cyberspace, whether we like it or not.
