The Mother Tongue in the Chilean EFL Classroom: How We Learn English: Thomas Jerome Baker: Amazon.com: Kindle Store

“The Mother Tongue in the Chilean EFL Classroom” is told from my point of view. Yet, in a larger sense, it’s an ELT story that makes the effort to share, a moment in time, with some very special people, in a very special country - Chile, a place time forgot, a place where we do things the Chilean Way. Don’t bother looking for it on the map. Be content to know it is located at the end of the world, literally. One of the most defining characteristics of an EFL classroom in Chile is the quality of the teacher. If the teacher teaches English in English, they display what the quality of their beliefs are, namely, “in this classroom there is no place for the mother tongue.” If the teacher teaches English in Spanish, maybe they read my book, but weren’t impressed. The teacher’s beliefs are also on display, namely, “there is a place for the mother tongue in this classroom.” Who is right? Who is wrong? At any rate, the language that the teacher teaches in, is crucial. It will ultimately define the students’ achievements...

Four Fantastic FREE Books 4 U! by Thomas Jerome Baker on Oct 13, 2012 1,170 views

 

Free books matter a lot. In the beginning, everything I wrote was intended for free. I had noticed that so many English language teachers here in my home country had to struggle to pay when they attended a professional conference or wanted to buy a book for their professional development.

My writing was a way for me to make a contribution to fill the need I had observed. It gradually dawned upon me that the only way I would ever have a legitimate way to alleviate the affordability gap was a paradox. Let me explain the paradox.

Extending Middle Class Tax Cuts to Grow the Economy: President Obama says, “Let’s Get to Work!”

Extending Middle Class Tax Cuts to Grow the Economy: President Obama says, “Let’s Get to Work!” | Authorship | Scoop.it
There are 53 days left to find a solution that stops taxes from going up on 140 million American families and helps us reduce our nation’s deficits in a smart and responsible way.

And that’s what brought President Obama to the East Room of the White House this afternoon — where he laid out his strategy for finding the right approach to move the country forward.

“I’m committed to solving our fiscal challenges,” he said. “But I refuse to accept any approach that isn’t balanced. I am not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me, making over $250,000, aren’t asked to pay a dime more in taxes. I’m not going to do that.”
