    S02E13 Using Improv In The Classroom

    S02E13 Using Improv In The Classroom

    Looking for some new ideas to try with your advanced teen classes? Try some improvisation games. These games can be fun and interactive for the whole class. Today, we're talking to Paul Singleton about ideas to use this in the classroom. According to Paul, these have broken kids out of their shell to have them more active and involved in the class.

    We also talk about mental health and his experience of teaching at a children's hospital.

    S02E11 The Art of Using Projects (w/Mihaela Palimariu)

    S02E11 The Art of Using Projects (w/Mihaela Palimariu)

    How many projects do you do with your kids in a semester? Projects can be a wonderful way to get students to do specific work to prepare a task focusing on a targeted part of language. Doing projects in our EFL classes can be great... but they can also fall flat without the right direction. 

    There are some guidelines that we should follow to maximize the benefits of doing projects in our English classes, especially for teen classes.

    This is what we are talking about today with our guest Mahaela Palimariu, a professional English teacher and conference speaker. I've recently had a chance to attend the ACEIA teaching conference in Seville, Spain. One of the conference speakers was Mahaela, and I asked her to join me on the podcast to share her knowledge and wisdom with you.

    She gives some specific pieces of advice to get the most out of your ESL projects to get all of the students to contribute and benefit from the project. Learn some tips, advice, project ideas, and methodology plus a whole lot more in today's jam packed episode of the More Than English Podcast. 

    Enjoy!
