Scott Thornbury is, in my humble opinion, ELT’s top thinker and if you’re interested in ELT methodology, it doesn’t get better than his A-Z blog. Highly recommended.
This excellent site is for both students and teachers of English. What makes it so good?
1. Clean, user-friendly layout
2. Daily updates
3. Information that is relevant and always 100% accurate and reliable.
I came across this site last year as I was putting together a workshop on listening comprehension and I was very impressed by the academic soundness of the articles I read. Top-notch. Check it out.
This site gives you an estimate of the sheer size of your vocabulary based on a sample of words. Sounds interesting.
This one’s interesting for translators. Its search engine looks up not only words but also a number of fixed phrases.
I came upon this one by accident and I was very impressed by the reflective teaching articles. Definitely worth a visit.
Interesting site, full of thought-provoking posts, for those interested in TBL, Dogme and teacher training.
This guy is a Lexical Approach expert. Seriously. Do check him out.
Higor is a Brazilian teacher educator, just like me. Very interesting stuff on his site.
Kevin Stein’s site contains a good mix of anecdotal accounts, reflection and ELT theory.
There’s something about Rachael’s writing that strikes a chord with me. Maybe it’s the perfect theory / practice balance that she always manages to strike.
Lots of fun, ready-to-use, well thought-out pronunciation activities. Do check it out!
