English Club.com

 


http://www.englishclub.com/teach-english.htm


This is an interesting web site for EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teachers  It is a good source of ideas and support for lesson planning.

In English Club.com, teachers can find lesson plans, teacher forums, ideas for school projects, teaching tips and TEFL articles.

I visit English Club quite often, because I am constantly planning new lessons and the web site has valuable and useful tips.

There is a section in English Club.com where teachers can find "The saying of the day", "The slang of the day" , "The phrasal verb of the day", and "The idiom of the day". This is my favorite. It's basically about vocabulary you woulndn't find in the dictionary: expressions with metaphoric meaning and everyday local  informal language available in the net. Students really enjoy learning this kind of things.




Dear students, as you can see one of the topics for our third post is " a carrer-related web site you enjoy visiting". I have chosen this as a demonstration, basically because I don't have anything to say about the SECOND  option, but you can choose the one you prefer, of course. The instructions for the first option are:

In 180 to 200 words write about a career-related website that you enjoy visiting.

You should:

- provide a link
- describe the website (sections, features,etc)
- say how often you visit the site
- explain why you like the site.

>Add comments to at least 3 of your classmates’ blogs

But, if you prefer OPTION 2, you should write about the following:

Who is a person/expert on your field that you admire?

Say:

-Who she/he is.(short biography)
-What she/he has done. (examples of their work)
-Why you like her/him.
-Include his/her image

> About 180 -200 words please
>Add comments to at least 3 of your classmates’ blogs

You have 2 alternatives as you see, so choose the one you like the most.

Hi, this is my first comment. I think the Englishclub.com website is a really good idea for teachers and students around the world but needs a better visual presentation of the sections.
