English Out There

English Out There social learning, social media ESL materials took 7 years and 250,000 hours of teaching to develop. 6 levels+ Chi, Jp, Kor, Rus and Spn versions. So you can teach EOT to your students, then connect with another class on Edmodo for real focused speaking practice using Voice Thread, Skype or G+. There's an app in the app store too! We were one of the top 10 uses of social media for teaching language in the EU in 2011.

    It seems that the app for Edmodo is not available for my country for licensing reasons. Kindly advise when it will. I would love to implement this in my classes. EFL/EPD/EPC english instructor. Nicaragua, Central America.

    Just wanted to share a success story using QR codes in my adult ESL language classroom. I was skeptical about the how/why/where/when of using QR codes in ESL, but after reading several articles decided to give it a try. Essentially, I converted a reading comprehension (match the headings with the description activity) to a QR activity that used reading, listening and speaking skills. With the exception of two older students who went into a sort of digital meltdown, the activity was well received and the students gave me very positive feedback, mostly in terms of impact and motivation. It was a way to work on digital competence as well, bring in some TICs and "shake things up" a bit. My first stab at it was successful and from what I learned on how to improve it, I will definitely repeat QR codes in class.

      We had a brief training session on this about a year ago but I never got around to trying it. I'd love to see you lesson details for a refresher if you don't mind sharing. terri.pleasant@sa.britishcouncil.org

      The exhibition idea is fantastic. I am working with my son's primary school to do the same. I will send my activity to both of you today.

    Hello,
    I'd like to start a correspondence between my students in 8th grade (13-14 years old) and a class from a different country, so that they can practise their English. We are from Italy and we could also help students who are studying Italian as a foreign language.
    I would like them to use Padlet or we could set up a group on Edmodo and create sugbroups so we can monitor what they write and have a protected environment. Anyone interested? My email is annana05@gmail.com.

      Take a look at this website on postcrossing. Lots of spectacular ideas to get your students writing, receive REAL postcards (not digital) and also have a cross-cultural exchange. I can send you a contact I have in Spain who is involved in it. I, too, am going to do it with my students this year. I have additional info in English if you'd like. https://www.postcrossing.com/

    Hello,
    Can someone recommend a good Conversational English book. I am using Pronunciation Pairs by Ann Baker and Sharon Goldstein, it's very good but I would like to research other books as well.

    Thanks and God Bless

    Hi my dear fellow teachers,
    I need some help. Could you please give me some ideas to boost SPEAKING in big classrooms at a secondary school?
    Thanks a lot

      Hello Ms. Rosales, some of the strategies that I use is creating teams, or partnering students in pairs. This will help increase communication. I use daily topics of conversation, by posting a question the students writes a response and shares with thr class. this activity will defenietly increase conversatioon. I hope this helps.

      Some of my students are rather shy and therefore lack speaking practice. It has been helpful to pair students or set up small discussion groups. Students may adopt different roles apart from the “English-only” guard. I use to select students to give feedback on the content and specific vocabulary being used and the structure and accuracy of the points being made. A timer can be useful if you wish to increase the length of the individual contributions. As many students are speaking at the same time, it may be a little difficult for the teacher to observe the process, but, provided more...

    This is our new Android app that works with our learning content, just £1. It has a unique little twist to voice recording...you can schedule three replays of each file so that you can hear yourself speaking a few times. The reason we did this is so that learners brains get enough of the personalised information about their speaking performances that help them to improve fast. If you give it a go let us know what you think :-)

    Hi folks, how's it going? We''re a small publisher who constantly innovate. We have been working on our new face-to-face English speaking course product and Android app. We've taken our gaze away from Edmodo for a while so it would be great if any of you could let us know how it is going and you think there is anything we should know? We are thinking on putting some lesson plans/worksheets on Edmodo Spotlight...has anyone got any feedback for us? All the best, Jason

      Spotlight is a great place to publish content. Do give it a try.
