MEETING CHALLENGES IN THE EFL CLASSROOM


Branko M. has been so kind as to give me the opportunity to present some of the challenges teachers worldwide need to face if they wish their teaching to result in efficient learning on the students’ part. Although I feel fortunate to have been trusted with students of all ages and levels, the difficulties posed on the way have been numerous, also allowing me to take delight in their resolution.

The PDF file above shows how I structured my talk: I elaborated on four different, though interrelated, challenges which manifest themselves in EFL teaching combined with the corresponding solutions, the potential resources to be used and some examples from my personal experience. I consciously avoided complex educational jargon or the use of related bibliography. My words solely represented my everyday anxities when it comes to my profession and my thoughts about the solutions I have given.

The full text of my presentation will be posted in a series of guest posts on Barbara Hoskins-Sakamoto's blog very soon. In the meantime, you can listen to the recording of the seminar and get plenty of teaching ideas from the other three resourceful presenters, as well.
