The Professional Development team here at OUP is helping to solve your EFL teaching problems by answering your questions every two weeks right here on our blog.
Recently, we’ve posted the following blogs in response to teachers’ questions:
- #EFLproblems – Teaching the over 50s
- #EFLproblems – Teaching Monolingual Classes
- #EFLproblems – Learners noticing and correcting their own mistakes
- #EFLproblems – Learning English Beyond the Exams
- #EFLproblems – Motivating Young Learners
- #EFLproblems – Teaching Writing in the age of WhatsApp
- #EFLproblems – Cell phones in the adult classroom: interruption or resource?
Each of these blogs was followed by a live Facebook chat with a member of the Professional Development team to discuss the topic further. Dozens of teachers have taken part in these chats to help them better understand how to deal with the issues we’ve addressed. Be sure to like our Facebook page to be reminded of upcoming live chats.
If you are facing a teaching challenge that you would like us to write about, please leave a comment on the EFLproblems blog post. You can also let us know on Twitter using the hashtag #EFLproblems or on our Facebook page.
We would also like to take this opportunity to point you towards some of the great resources we have available for teachers.
You can follow OUP ELT on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, YouTube, and, of course, here on our blog. If you are new to any of these platforms, these instructions will help get you started.

Professional Development Webinars
Did you know that OUP runs free webinars every week? If you’ve never attended a webinar, it’s definitely worth a try. All webinar attendees receive a certificate of attendance, a PDF of the slides, and a link to the webinar recording. Even if you can’t attend the webinar at the time it’s happening, signing up will give you access to the recorded webinar. If you miss any webinars, you can catch up with the webinar resources archive.
Oxford Teachers’ Club
With the Oxford Teachers’ Club, you can get free access to over 18,000 trusted EFL and ESL resources, lesson plans, worksheets, and activities, which you can download to support your English language teaching.
Finally, a big thank you to everyone who has submitted a question for us. Keep them coming, so we can continue learning and developing together.
