  • Manesha, do you think it might be better to plan ahead and make any changes during the lesson?

  • I like your thinking, Neza! :)

  • Which approach is better, Dilini?

  • HF, do you think understanding the rules makes it easier for students to produce language?

  • Thank you for your suggestions, Mariia! :)

  • Good question, Rocio. I'd say it depends on the teacher, program, what you're trying to teach, and of course the students themselves.

  • Good observation, Maite! :)

  • Sabankilie, do you think this is a good approach? :)

  • Thank you for sharing, Silvia!

  • Good approach, Prabha!

  • Good observation, Prarthana!

  • Great response, Marina!

  • Glad you found them useful, Andreja!

  • Good approach, Rocio!

  • Laura, you're absolutely right! Challenging skill! :)

  • Azra, is it necessary for students have prior knowledge to complete a listening task?

  • Priyantha, how important is authenticity in reading texts?

  • Maria, could the financial report be used to teach students how or organise and write a report?

  • Liza, do you think the financial report can be useful for students in some way? Do they need sentences to make a text beneficial?

  • Silvia, what kinds of texts do you find 'appealing' for your students? :)

  • Good point, Mariia! It’s important to remember that when using analytic scales, we need to stay away from what is called a ‘halo effect’: allowing, for example, poor vocabulary to influence other criteria. It’s essential to read and follow the rubrics.

  • Hi Flabia,
    It’s interesting that you assign the same weight for each.

  • Hi Pamela. In our digital world how important is this for their English writing skills?

  • Good point @MevuniDissanayake. Short feedback at the end of the activity/lesson might be a good idea to point out systematic errors.

  • Hi Yasti. Why do you think testing students’ self-esteem in an English class is important?

  • Great strategies @CristianoPedro !

  • Maria, great attitude!

  • Exactly, Karina!

  • Ghadah, what about using something like breakout rooms (zoom)? You can then pop into each to see how they are doing.
