What’s the greatest challenge you’ve faced as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language (EFL)? Is it getting your students to speak in English? Reducing the use of L1 in your classes? Motivating your students to learn? Maybe something concerning behaviour?
We in the Professional Development Department at Oxford University Press receive a lot of questions about teaching and learning. Through our work with teachers and trainers all over the world, we also receive a lot of ideas, simple suggestions and activities. So, we’ve decided to write a series of bi-monthly articles focussing on addressing these greatest challenges.
Every two weeks, we will focus on one of the challenges you send us by addressing it right here on the Oxford University Press ELT blog. We will follow up each blog post with a live Facebook chat to discuss the issue further. Join us to ask questions and contribute your ideas on the topic.
The first challenge will be posted on October 23, with a follow up Facebook chat on October 25. Be sure to Like our Facebook page to be reminded about the upcoming live chats.
We look forward to hearing from you, so we can continue learning and developing together.
