Zaption - Interact & Learn with Video Interactive: European Stereotypes As part of the Europa project, newspapers from six European countries (Britain, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, and Italy) were asked to stereotype each other, and then asked cultural commentators in each country to assess how accurate they are. You can read the resulting articles on The Guardian website. Here's an extract from the one about the British: The stereotype is itself a stereotype. The European image of the Brit – either pukingly drunk football fan or snooty City gent, both living off past imperial glories, sullenly resenting being in Europe rather than ruling the world – is itself a cliche. Just as Brits know that every good Frenchman wears a striped shirt and beret, and that ruddy-faced Germans subsist on a diet of beer and sausage, so we know precisely what all those Europeans think of us.

One of the best language apps – “HelloTalk”- Review plus my experience | Koen speaks… I have been self-learning Korean for a little over a year now. And like all enthusiastic language learners, I’ve explored almost all resources available out there to help me learn the language.

HelloTalk has the widest assortment of fantastic features, which have been especially tailored designed for the language learning purpose. I have been using this app since June 2015, and I have made many good Korean friends through the app. Language learning is all about training your brain to remember the new patterns of words and new sounds. To fulfil that very purpose I have tried almost all language exchange apps available out there. Features available at HelloTalk Like I said before, HelloTalk offers one of the best arrays of language learning features. Like this:
10 sources of free interactive content for your class Educators are creating lessons and sharing them online. Tap into great teaching resources with these 10 sites. (Flickr / Luis Vidal) Years ago, textbooks served a different purpose. Information was at a premium, and textbooks filled the void. They were chock full of it — a one-stop shop for the curious student. Today, things have changed. Textbooks are bulky, inflexible and pricey. These days, where powerful technology lets us connect with others and share ideas, there has to be a better option than buying the same textbook for every kid. Open educational resources (OERs) may be the best option available right now. These resources include individual reading selections, videos and PowerPoint presentations. Oh, and that word “open.” Here are 10 open educational resources worth checking out: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. engageny (engageny.org) — This site, maintained by the New York State Education Department, helps students and teachers align to the New York State Board of Regents Reform Agenda.
The Digital Comic Museum - Free and Public Domain Comic Books Teaching English: Online Reading & Resources We are fast approaching the new school year and it is a time of mild anxiety and hurried organisation. We are left with the big questions, such as what is my code for the photocopier and how do you teach teenagers again? Alongside the obligatory sleepless night before we return, we can also feel the optimism of a new start. English teachers have a busy year ahead. To prepare for the onslaught, some English teachers ready their rooms and hunker down, whereas others read some books or a bunch of articles, whilst some do both.

A task in which students need to work together to come to a conclusion (task-based learning) If a shop or restaurant has closed down nearby ask students to decide what they think should replace it. You’re thinking of watching a film in English in class. Opinions and debates Start students off on any controversial topic you think will create discussion. Create an experience Walk in silence round a nearby park or round the building where the lesson takes place. Topics that may spark anecdotes My scar. Once the students are talking as a whole class, in groups, in pairs or with you (for one-to-one classes), this is where the important work begins. Was it because you were interested?

The best resources to get kids coding Many schools are getting to grips with teaching coding, but the resources available, while numerous, can be difficult for any teacher to get their head around. There’s different approaches and different languages to learn, and it can be hard to work out what is most suitable. The tendency is to think ‘what do kids like?’ and then attach the coding skills to that. Hence the newly announced partnership to help pupils learn to code with Minecraft. Such things can take you so far, and with certain groups – to fully emerse yourself in any language, you need to offer a variety of challenges that will engage everyone in the classroom. And these are not bad places to start – some are just starting points, while some are simply guides to further resources.
