For a Better Brain, Learn Another Language

Multi-linguals might also be better decision-makers. According to a new study, they are more resistant to conditioning and framing techniques, making them less likely to be swayed by such language in advertisements or political campaign speeches.

Top 10 Websites for Teaching Grammar

Top 10 Websites for Teaching Grammar | English for International Students | Scoop.it

Using grammar correctly could be challenging may be not for those who are English native speaker, but surely for those who learn English from scratch. English language and its difficulties can be very much puzzling. Although, a dictionary or software can assist learners but it cannot give accurate answer. In fact, word processing programs are not very much effective in correcting grammar errors completely.

"Coursebooks are..." - Cambridge Conversations

"Coursebooks are..." - Cambridge Conversations | English for International Students | Scoop.it
There’s a perennial debate in the ELT profession about the value – or lack thereof – of coursebooks in the classroom. The great Scott Thornbury and many other high-profile thinkers in our field often question loudly the value of coursebooks and argue that classrooms would generally be better off without them. So when I asked …

Embracing Messy Learning

Embracing Messy Learning | English for International Students | Scoop.it

I am slowly learning to embrace the struggles that students experience as they engage with authentic work. If I don't allow learning to be messy, I eliminate authentic experiences for students as thinkers and creators. I find it important to regularly remind myself that frustration leads to insights and that learning is not necessarily the equivalent of mastery.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 8, 9:46 PM

Learning is messy. It is a recurring process which is always recommencing itself.

magnus sandberg's curator insight, August 9, 4:24 AM

The article is good, but what I really love is the term "messy learning" itself. So much teaching in school has the ideal of creating clairity and being systematic in every part of the learning process. But that is simply not how learning happens. We need to embrace the messyness!

Josh Round's curator insight, August 10, 12:08 PM

The messy learning described here mirrors the struggles and frustrations our Learners face in communicative classrooms - a inherent part of the process of learning a language.
