TEACHING ENGLISH British Council

TeachingEnglish is produced by the British Council with content and editorial support from the British Broadcasting Corporation. Both organisations receive funding from the UK government for their work in promoting English, supporting English language teaching (ELT) and providing information and access to ELT products, services and expertise from the UK. All teaching material on the site is free to access.

As part of a pilot project, the site also features a variety of teaching materials produced by selected UK publishers.

Our purpose

We have designed this site to act in four ways:

  • as a theoretical and historical archive: where you can read about teaching methodology, current practice and issues in ELT
  • as a practical resource: for materials, activities and ideas for your teaching
  • as a forum: to help you, as teachers of English, to discuss your teaching, exchange ideas and share materials
  • as an information source: for professional development and training as well as an access point for consultancy services to implement educational policy reform.

Our content

  • The site is divided into four main sections which mirror the purposes described above:
  • THINK: where you can find teachers’ articles on different aspects of teaching, from classroom practice to learning theory
  • TRY: where you can find lesson plans, quizzes, ideas for activities and other materials which you can download to use in class
  • TALK: where you can keep you own personal blog, join discussion forums and form groups around particular areas of interest
  • TRANSFORM: where teachers can get help and advice on their professional development (training, qualifications, personal development, specialist areas, etc) and policy makers can find information about the products and consultancy services that the British Council can offer from the ELT constituency in the UK.

The materials on this site are designed for non-native speaker teachers of English working predominantly in secondary education in state schools around the world. However, we have made a wide variety of material available and we trust it will also be of interest to teachers of all age groups and working in other kinds of teaching institutions.
TeachingEnglish also allows users to comment on content across the site. Views expressed by our users are theirs and do not necessarily reflect the views of the British Council or the BBC.

BRIT LIT

BRIT LIT projekat

http://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/britlit

About the BritLit project

BritLit was originally established in Portugal to help teachers in secondary schools to work effectively with the extended reading texts (short stories) in the national curriculum. Since then it has become a global resource and offers access to texts and supporting material for the whole school range of English language teaching.

The stories and poems featured are mostly chosen because of their relevance to the teaching programmes in many countries as well as the interest likely to be stimulated in young people. The majority of the stories and poems are from contemporary writers. This allows a parallel programme of author visits to schools across the world to take place. All the writers featured have a strong connection with the UK.

Some of the materials are written by professional materials writers and some are written by teams of teachers of English who have attended NILE training courses in Norwich, UK, with this purpose in mind. All the ‘kits’ are edited by Fitch O’Connell, Claudia Ferradas and/or Alan Pulverness.

The resources are called ‘kits’ because they are designed to be chosen from rather than used in their entirety – teachers build their own lessons from the activities on offer. The wide range of materials on offer allows mixed ability teaching to become a reality, as is the preference for including materials where the task can be easily graded.

Teachers interested in considering some of the further pedagogical implications of using short stories in the BritLit way can downlaod and read Literary Farmers (pdf).

BritLit was started in 2003 as a joint adventure between the British Council in Portugal and APPI, the Portuguese association for teachers of English.

TUNE INTO ENGLISH

The staff at Tune Into English have been combining their passion for music and teaching since entering the world of ELT.

Our students look forward to being rewarded at the end of each lesson with their favourite song, and agree it is the most motivating point of the lesson.

Tune into English was created by Fergal Kavanagh . He is both a Teacher Trainer and a one-time Radio DJ, and has taught in the Scuola Superiore and at the British Council and the University “L’Orientale” in Napoli, also collaborating with the Regione Campania. He has co-written a coursebook for the Italian, Spanish and Greek lower secondary school and conducted teacher training sessions throughout Italy, as well as in Germany, Spain, Turkey, Bulgaria, Slovakia and Ireland.

In November 2005 he first presented the Tune Into English Roadshow, and since then has encouraged tens of thousands of students in five countries to listen more closely to the language used in songs.

While Tune Into English is his main activity, Fergal also works in many different fields. He regularly contributes to guide books on Naples and the surrounding area, has organised a pizza festival in Ireland and an Italian tour for Irish singer-songwriter Marc Carroll. He has collaborated in film production, and his voice features on many more productions.  He continues to occasionally DJ in local clubs and at private events.

Nina u Australiji – blog Nine Radojicic

SVE STO NISTE ZNALI O AUSTRALIJI

blog drage ucenice sa priprema za IELTS academic, Danice Radojicic o zivotu u Australiji 🙂 kao PhD studentkinje na University of Melbourne

http://ninauaustraliji.blogspot.com

“Subota je popodne i konacno sam pronasla vremena da nastavim da vam pisem, i to na mom novom (od prve plate ovde – zaradjenom) Samsung AtivBook-u. 🙂

Znam, dugo ste cekali na sledecu pricu, ali ipak je opravdano – kada krenete sa svojim PhD projektom, radite od 9 do 17h svakog dana u laboratoriji i posle predjete kilometre u trazenju idealnog stana u kome biste mogli da se skrasite (ne zaboravite, Melburn je par puta veci od Beograda) – dan vam je izuzetno kratak za druge stvari i zadovoljstva i samo pozelite da se ususkate u krevetu i slatko zaspite od umora. Trazenje nekretnina za iznajmljivanje je dug i tezak proces, ali, o tome ce biti vise reci u narednom postu.

A da biste mogli da stignete na vreme na posao i posle posla obilazite razlicite delove grada, a niste u poziciji da vozite svoj auto (sto je slucaj sa dva tek pristigla PhD studenta), Melburn vam pruza sjajne, ali i skupe usluge javnog prevoza – vozova (metroa), tramvaja i buseva.

Krenucemo od trenutka kada zelite da isplanirate vas put do nekog odredista. U te svrhe cete koristiti web sajt ili instaliranu aplikaciju na vasem telefonu: PTV – Public Transport Victoria – Journey Planer (ovo ce vam sigurno trebati u pocetku, kada ne poznajete grad, mada ga dosta koriste i ljudi koji su “domaci“ :)). Ukucacete mesto gde se vi trenutno nalazite, vase krajnje odrediste i JP ce vam izbaciti sve moguce puteve i vidove transporta do zeljenog mesta, priblizno vreme koje ce vam trebati u te svrhe i mapu u PDF formatu za lakse snalazenje. Zgodno, zar ne? Jedina mana ovog sistema je sto ne mozete na karti da vidite

GODIŠNJAK

Godišnjak je najlepša reklama vaše škole! Pokažite sve kvalitete vaše škole i njenih učenika!

Godišnjak je prilika da nagradite vaše učenike, da im omogućite da i sami vide koliko je bogato i raznovrsno njihovo obrazovanje i školsko iskustvo. Godišnjak će vam pomoći da učvrstite duh i identitet škole i da kod svojih učenika razvijete veći osećaj pripadnosti i privrženosti školi.

Godišnjak takođe predstavlja priliku za aktivno i praktično sticanje znanja i veština, formiranjem sekcije Godišnjak!

Za đake: Godišnjak je knjiga o vama! Pokažite svetu ko ste, kakvi ste, šta volite, šta ne volite i šta sve možete i umete! A ako ste zainteresovani, možete i sami da pravite vaš Godišnjak. Mi ćemo vam pomoći da ova knjiga bude baš vaša!

Za roditelje: Lepotu i značaj školskih dana prepoznajemo tek sa godinama, ali malo ko od nas je u prilici da–dok traje–napravi ovako detaljan i sveoubuhvatan album sećanja. Uz Godišnjak, vaša deca će moći da uživaju u lepoti tog perioda celog života. Naravno, i vi ćete se rado sećati njihovog odrastanja i svog drugog polaska u školu! Svesni smo da je svaki izdatak veliki (i mi smo roditelji!) ali verujemo da je Godišnjak nešto što vremenom samo dobija na vrednosti.

Za ostala udruženja: Godišnjak postoji da bi zabeležio jedno zajedničko iskustvo i jedan odeređeni period u našim životima. Škola je nešto što nam je svima zajedničko, ali nas okupljaju razni povodi: sport, hobi, volonterski rad, posao. Gde god se sastajali ljudi kako bi podelili neko zajedničko interesovanje ili radili ka istom cilju, može se napraviti Godišnjak da bi se to iskustvo ovekovečilo i podelilo sa drugima. Bilo da ste sportski klub, grupa građana, nevladina organizacija, radni kolektiv ili drugo udruženje, kontaktirajte nas i napravićemo knjigu o vama!

Lesson Stream by Jamie Keddie

A chef friend of mine once told me the secret to good cooking. According to him, success lies in obtaining excellent ingredients.

It all seems so simple really. And as a language teacher I can relate to this. We can’t overestimate the importance of the ingredients that we select for the classroom – that is the materials.
Materials should inspire teachers and engage students. They should be provoking (without necessarily being provocative although that can be good). They should arouse curiosity and get heads thinking and language emerging. During the last few years, the modern teacher has been given access to an explosion in good ingredients to take into the classroom.

Take Western Spaghetti for example – a great animation by filmmaker PES. During this one and a half minute clip, we watch a series of bizarre household objects – a ball of wool, a Rubik’s cube, a handful of rubber bands – being transformed into a delicious looking plate of spaghetti with tomato sauce.

The clip is everything we would want to get students on our side. But what do we do with it? Well, that is whereLessonstream comes in. Lessonstream is a selection of lesson plans – or rather, recipes – which serve to demonstrate how teachers can make use of such materials.

Of course, good chefs don’t stick rigidly to recipes. They adapt them. And I would never expect a teacher to use one of my lesson plans exactly how I have written it.
For that reason, the site uses a Creative Commons license. That is what the logo in the bottom right hand side of the screen is all about. What this means is that teachers have permission to remix, mash and share the content on my site for non-commercial purposes.

Have fun!
Jamie 🙂

The Round

the round is an independent collective of creative individuals in English language teaching.

It was founded by Lindsay Clandfield and Luke Meddings in spring 2011 and arose from a series of conversations about bridging the gap between blogs and books – and about the difficulty of placing innovative, niche or critical materials with the big ELT publishers.

Our mission is threefold:

  • to provide great material for educators (fairly priced and readily accessible)
  • to give a fair deal to authors (who sell and retain the copyright on their own work)
  • to be a learning environment (where we share expertise and ideas)

The website, designed and developed by Mark Bain, is a shared space for marketing products by round authors and disseminating round news and ideas.

Serbian City Club, London, UK

Serbian City Club is a London-based independent and non-political organisation established to promote the interests of Serbian professionals. Its aim is to provide a networking platform for the professionals looking to pursue a career in the City of London and more recently those who are looking to return to Serbia.

Thanks to our growing group of members, we support and encourage all professionals, whatever their origin or social status, to enter into the heart of the leading European and world’s business community. Anyone who is interested in becoming a member of our network is more than welcome to join the Serbian City Club and help us by taking part in our activities.

Serbian City Club was founded in the late 1990’s by a few enthusiastic Serb immigrants that were working in London’s financial institutions. Their idea was to bring to life an informal club that would gather young Serbian professionals that lived and worked in the UK. However, since 2004, our numbers have steadily increased and today the Club is more than 1600 strong. Our members are mainly London-based and work in all walks of professional life as scientists, doctors, bankers, engineers, lecturers, civil servants, etc. in renowned British and global institutions. Our typical Club member is characterized by a high level of education and cultural awareness which tied with their linguistic skills ensures their allows them seamless integration into British society. Whilst retaining strong links with their families and friends in Serbia, with a view of transferring their knowledge, skills and experience, they strengthen Serbia’s European identity and its key role in the Balkans. With this in mind, we have recently started a project of ‘brain drain reversal’ through which we are enabling Serbian professionals to return to Serbia.

The Club organizes networking events in London on a monthly basis thus enabling continued contact amongst the existing members and an opportunity to welcome new ones

DANCING ENGLISH

Forged out of thousands of children´s concerts, Dancing English was created to teach English and language skills to primary-age children through music and movement.

Kind of like Super Simple Songs, only for older children. Because big kids have big energy, and they need songs to match. Take a look at our intro video and you´ll see kids performing ameaningful movement for every line of every song. Combine this with songs kids really love, real-world lyrics they can relate to, and our free worksheets—and you´ve got a powerful teaching tool.

We admit it, we love fooling kids. We write fun, cool, rocking songs that to primary-age kids don´t sound like “educational” music at all. But teaching English is what we´re all about. And we know older kids love these songs because all of our songs are kid-tested. They´re easy to teach, easy to learn—and they don´t sound like children´s music! Maybe that´s because our music is recorded by Grammy-level musicians who record and tour internationally.

How good are the songs? Oxford University Press called on founder Daniel Griffin to write all the music for one of its primary English methods. And he tours the world with one of Latin rock´s biggest artists, so he knows how to get a crowd dancing and shaking! But don´t take our word for it—take a listen here.

ELT blog by Anthony Ash

This blog was created with all English Language Teachers in mind: whether you’ve recently qualified, have 20 years of experience or are a Teacher Trainer, there should hopefully be something here for you.

I have been fortunate enough to have gone through a number of training courses and qualifications, most of which cost a substantial amount of money such as the DELTA and a Masters degree. With this in mind, the aim of this blog is to share and disseminate the knowledge and skills from these courses. Why? Because not everyone is able to access such courses, yet not because of a lack of willingness but because of other impeding means.

Through a mix of topical posts, comments and discussions to share and develop ideas, together we will take teaching beyond the classroom.

ELT Teacher 2 Writer is two things – firstly, we publish eBooks that train teachers in the craft and skills of ELT writing.

These are available via Amazon and Smashwords (which distributes to iBooks, Barnes and Noble, etc). There are training courses for writers of fiction and poetry, so why not ELT materials?

Secondly, it’s a database of writers, ranging from already widely-published writers, to enthusiastic teachers who write for their own teaching situations and want to find a wider audience. Any of the publishers whose logos are on our home page have free access to the database, enabling them to search for writers who match the criteria of the projects they’re looking to resource. For example, a publisher can search for people with experience of teaching secondary classes in Spain and Poland, and who have had materials published. Another search could be done for people who have IELTS experience and who are willing to give feedback to a publisher on the materials they’re currently using in the class. This kind of information would typically take a publisher weeks to gather, but using our database it can be done by sending a batch email and collected literally overnight.

Please visit the website or contact us if you’re:

  • a writer looking for work
  • a publisher looking for writers
  • a writer looking to hone your writing skills
  • an organization looking for writer training courses
