The Story of English in 100 Words

The Story of English in 100 Words | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The linguist David Crystal is the last word on words, with publications including The Cambridge Encyclopaedia of Language and The Cambridge Encyclopaedia of the English Language, but he has a fabulous anarchic streak. He has questioned the hegemony of the Queen's English and lent legitimacy to the numerous 'Englishes' that have developed in the former colonies.

Vocabulary and autonomy

Vocabulary and autonomy | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

This article looks at ways to improve your students' abilities to both explore, store and use vocabulary. The general aim is to involve the students in a more autonomous fashion in their learning, rather than simply having them presented with word lists selected by the teacher or syllabus.

How to share a screen in Skype | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
