Improve your English through film clips

Improve your English through film clips | EFL resources | Scoop.it

When learning English it's important that you hear as many different accents and types of voices from different ages of speaker so that you are able to understand English wherever you go. This activity gives you lots of opportunity to practice your listening skills and broaden your understanding of English speakers.

Exploiting Infographics for ELT

Exploiting Infographics for ELT | EFL resources | Scoop.it

For those of you who haven’t encountered the term ‘infographic’ before, an infographic is a visual representation of, what is often, quite dense statistical information. This is the kind of information which can be very difficult to read as prose / text, but which, when transformed to a visual, can become accessible very quickly.

Infographics and business English training make a good fit and Nik Peachey's ideas transfer nicely to the BE classroom.

Merryn Fawssett's insight:

Really interesting read on what it means to be 'English'! Love the ideas for classroom discussion. As an Aussie who was born a Kiwi, has lived in India 6 years and England for 3, the concept of nationality is a complicated and convoluted one - I'm sure this is the case for many of our learners too. Maybe as teachers we can be part of changing attitudes about heritage and belonging in a new global society.
