Amazing blog with teacher resources!

I found a great blog with lots of teacher resources.  It’s name is Tecknologic and its author is an English teacher in Japan. It was chosen as Featured Blog of the Month in April this year by British Council. It has  downloadable templates for activities and games, videos and tips and tricks. Everything is explained in detail.

Definitely worth checking out!

Exploring English – Free MOOC

Futurelearn is offering a free MOOC (massive open online course)  from British Council (“UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities”) for people interested in learning more about the  British culture and improving their English language skills. The date hasn’t been announced yet, but I will inform you through my blog or you can register in Futurelearn and register you interest so they can  send you an email when the course opens.

This course is suggested for people with an intermediate or higher level of English. You will be able to watch videos and download them. Moreover, you will find quizzes and discussions to evaluate your understanding. The course also involves writing about your feelings and experiences about each week’s topic. However, it’s up to you to participate actively or to take the course and just watch and read other people’s comments.

The course lasts 6 weeks and it takes about 2 hours per week to cover each week’s tasks. You can get a cerftificate from Futuelearn at the end of the course or buy a Statement of Participation.

Don’t miss the chance to learn more!
