Say hi to the summer school students!

Before the start of the summer school, we're going to be giving students access to a special website called Online Academic English, a place where students can access some practice materials, ask questions in a forum and introduce themselves. To help them introduce themselves, we've created a virtual noticeboard on which tutors and students can upload a picture of themselves and write a short profile. At the moment there are only tutors on the board as we haven't sent out details of the site to students, but will be doing so in the next few days.

If you are teaching on the summer school, it would be great if you could add your picture and write a few sentences about yourself. All you need to do is go to the link below, double click on anywhere that isn't a profile and you'll be given the option to write something and add a picture. When you finish this will then be added to the page.

Teaching 'with an attitude': critical discourse analysis in EFL

Critical-Discourse-Analysis.jpg
Recommended by Anastasios Asimakopoulos and - in his words - 'not as heavy as it appears', an excellent article exploring the role between language and social influence and what that might mean for our teaching. You can access it here, though you'll need to be signed into your Sheffield account to make sure you can open and view it.

Comparison of the effectiveness of dictionaries versus online corpora

Grammar Flip

grammar-flip-image.jpg
Grammar Flip is a website to help you 'flip' the classroom, by that we mean providing engaging and interactive content outside the classroom so you can focus more on helping the students inside. This website focusses specifically on grammar.

TESOL Academic

TESOL Academic is an excellent website from Huw Jarvis linking TESOL theory and practice through recorded lectures and links to research papers. Highly recommended.
