How to Survive and Thrive Overseas

How to Survive and Thrive Overseas One of the biggest mistakes people make in their lives is to put off, put off, put off - until later - until they meet some artificial criteria - before they act and do what is needed to get what they really want from life. It is a simple thing, okay maybe not super simple, to land yourself a decent job abroad and to get yourself living in a country where you can live reasonably well for 1/2, 1/3 or even less of what you think it costs you to live well where you are now. Where you can often save money even on a very modest wage. And, at the same time, you are seeing and traveling and experiencing the real world out there - not just the shopping malls, SUV payments, under-water mortgages and other things that can make life in the Western world seem, well . . . a bit plastic at times.
There is an ease of remaining in your home country in that it is nice and safe and that makes it easy to blame others, or the economy or whatever for your lack of progress in getting what you want out of life. And there are plenty of people there to naysay and put you back on the course to dull mediocrity and a sad dull boring life . . . just like theirs. They don't want you to break the mold, it would only disturb their own resignation to their paths. Come on . . . Get with it!

Something To Write About

Something To Write About Author Bill Zimmerman created this book of writing prompts over the years teaching English language learners and literacy students. Its intent is to help students discover their writers' voices and express the rich thoughts within them as they master the English language. Students are encouraged to write about their family, their friends, their old life and their new life, feelings, dreams and goals.
These writing prompts encourage students of all ages to write about the things in their lives that are meaningful to them—their childhood memories and family stories, the people they love and admire, their hopes for the future, their deepest beliefs. Zimmerman says, "I have always believed that everyone has a story to tell—if only someone would ask, if only someone would listen." This book gives teachers a way to draw out students' stories and help them communicate their thoughts through writing.

A No-Nonsense Guide to Writing Materials

A No-Nonsense Guide to Writing Materials ELT (English language teaching) writing comes in many shapes and sizes. Some authors write or co-write coursebook series. Others produce workbooks to go with those coursebooks. Or perhaps they write language practice books, or graded readers or grammar books. They may write resource books for teachers, or books on aspects of teaching methodology. And increasingly they may write material for online delivery, or as part of mobile-learning Apps.

If you are thinking of writing anything like that (or if you have started writing but don’t know where to place your work), then The No-Nonsense Guide to Writing is for you. As a look at the contents will demonstrate, there is advice here not only about the process of writing, but also on aspects of contracts and adequate remuneration. Other aspects of a writer’s life are covered too, such as who you may collaborate with, and what it’s like to give presentations about your work – and of course about what happens when things go wrong. You can find out, too, who produces and publishes ELT material in today’s changing world – and how to produce a sample to persuade them to take an interest in your work.

And so, for all of you who want to become (or continue to be) writers of ELT material, this collection of articles provides a one-stop resource of information about what you need to be able to do, what to be careful about, and how to enjoy it.

We hope you will find this collection of articles useful.

Thinking Critically through Digital Media

Thinking Critically through Digital Media Although the use of internet and digital materials in the language classroom has come a long way over the last 20 years, still the vast majority of web based material that finds its way into the language classroom is used for information input or comprehension purposes.

This is a fabulous book to supplement your lessons in the ESL university/adult education classroom. I use a listening/speaking text from a popular publisher, and I frequently find it lacking for speaking exercises that my students can use to apply the grammar points presented in the book. This book is the perfect solution to that problem. It is organized by grammar points - ones that you'll commonly find in any of the big-company ESL texts. In addition, the book starts with a brief section on some suggested uses for the questions in the classroom. Then, each grammar section begins with an overview of the grammar point, which I've found useful in expanding my class text's explanations. Within each group of questions, you'll also find that there are questions targeted at different language skills - so there is something for all learners. I own a copy of another book from this author, and I use it throughout my semesters. I was thrilled to have another of this author's books, and I am sure it will become a well-loved desktop friend.
