English Teacher Article Speaking Activities That Don't Suck

| | Comments (2) | TrackBacks (0)

I have English Teacher X's obra prima to read next and have enjoyed the other ebooks - they include a lot of sensible and realistic advice - but I didn't enjoy Speaking Activities that Don't Suck as much.

ETX starts from a very low level of expectation- he began in 1995 in Asia and says most teachers got through their lessons by reading from the book or talking about their lives. I started over a decade earlier in Europe and this would not have been accepted then- ETX's description of accommodation and conditions rang true.

I have since lived in SE Asia and seen how things are, but this book is not universal. It may help a beginner teacher, but an experienced teacher might find more in the other books.

Many people tough can read and write English but fail to speak perfect English,they should practice speaking English.Till now i have been using YouTube to practice English.Practicing speaking can help us much faster.
