Countable and uncountable nouns In this post, I try to explain what countable and uncountable nouns are. When I speak with native speakers of English they often tell me that the concept of countability in English is absolutely natural. “You simply know which noun is countable and which is not.” However, this natural feeling is nearly impossible to teach. Based on my experience I have created the following mind map where I try to set some rules to help the learners of English.
EdTech Tools - Teacher Tech To make things a little easier for myself, rather than trying to remember what tools I recommend I started a spreadsheet to keep a list. I also asked some of my friends who I consistently learn a lot from to add their favorites to the list. I’ll keep adding to the list! Link to the spreadsheet. I have the first tab randomizing the list so that you can discover new tools.

6 Ways to Make Teaching Grammar Fun (I'm Serious) - WeAreTeachers I love grammar. But convincing my students to love grammar sometimes feels like trying to convince a bobcat to enjoy a nice, relaxing ice bath. It’s true that students are more likely to be engaged in the learning process if you’re excited about the content, but I’ve noticed that students will stay engaged if they’re participating in a way that leaves room for creativity, choice or snort-inducing laughter. Here are some ways to put a little grammar fun into your routine! 1) Build grammar practice into fun writing assignments. My most recent assignment for students to practice comma usage was to choose between writing a letter using one of the following points of view: an old curmudgeon complaining to city hall about a completely trivial issue, a teenager writing to their* celebrity crush, or an alien writing back to their alien friends after visiting Earth.
