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. The students’ interaction with the materials is as such largely passive with the teacher controlling the suitability of the materials selected and deciding what information the students will extract from it.

"Great Book For Conversation Topics in an ESL/EFL Classroom
The book is broken down by themes -- holidays, foods, family, sports, etc. and I've used it in my adult ESL class many times to spark conversations. It's my first choice of conversation books I go to when I need a filler lesson or want to encourage students to speak up and share their ideas!"

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.

Fifty Ways to Teach Vocabulary: Tips for ESL/EFL Teachers

Fifty Ways to Teach Vocabulary: Tips for ESL/EFL Teachers Without grammar, you can't say much; but without vocabulary, you can't say anything.

Vocabulary is the foundation of successful language learning. ESL/EFL learners need to be familiar with a great many words if they want to read, write, listen, or speak with ease. In addition to the sheer number of words and phrases students need to learn, what makes vocabulary acquisition so tricky is that one “pass” is never enough. In order to really “know” a word, learners need to know, among other things, how to spell it, how to pronounce it, what other words it collocates with, what prefixes and suffixes it takes, what grammatical patterns it fits with, and what positive or negative associations it may have.
