Using a Ramdon Picker to Teach English It is a pity I am not working with primary or secondary students . I don’t think I’ll be able to use this tool at the beginning of the course. You see, I teach adults and it normally takes some time for them to get used to the way I teach and well I don’t think I’ll be able to keep a straight face if I see them staring at me as if I were crazy when I spin the wheel.

About tekhnologic – tekhnologic I’m a language learner as well, and I try my best to find time to learn Japanese and French, although I am not always successful. Personally, I find reading is the best way to learn as I am absorbing vocabulary in context with a story and can notice grammar patterns. Why is my blog call tekhnologic? I wanted to originally name by blog technologic, but like most ideas, someone else had already thought of it first. I tried to think of a better name, but nothing appealed to me. Finally, I decided to change the C to a K because of tekhne, which is part of the origin of the word technology but it originally meant art or skill.
