End of the year!!

Hi there!!

Last Friday we had the last class!! I'm guessing you are all feeling relieved!!

I just wanted to thank you for the positive feedback you gave me. The truth is that I love teaching and I really try to do my best! As we keep saying in our classes, even after many years of practice there is no magic recipe. Some classes go great and others not so much. We never stop learning. I believe that one of the most important factors to have a positive, enriching experience in any classroom is to create a warm, relaxed and trusting atmosphere...

Also, for me it is important to be coherent: to teach doing what I tell you you should do. And your feedback tells me you notice and appreciate this. So... thanks!!!

Good luck in your exams and...

Planning lessons and courses

Hi there!!

On Friday we dealt with the material on Planning Lessons and Courses. Unfortunately, very few students had read the material...Still, we managed to discuss some important ideas on the topic. You should download the questionnaire from the blog and finish it on your own, since next class we already start with presentations....

Bear in mind that in a few weeks we will be having the Second Term Test.... you should catch up with your reading!!

On Friday we will have the first presentation, so please try not to be late so you do not interrupt the group in charge.

Syllabus Design

Hi there!!

How are you doing on this rainy weekend??

Last Friday you worked in groups (organized according to the first letter of your names) on the questionnaire on Syllabus Design. The we shared the asnwers. We dealt with the first ten questions. For next class you must answer the questions on the "Diseño Curricular", which we will check together at the beginning of the class. Then you will have to design a yearly plan in groups.


We have moved the presentations back one week: instead of starting on the 22nd we will start on the 29th. The date of the term test remains the same. The topic "Testing" will not be included in the exam.

I really hope tomorrow you spend an amazing day!!

Hi there!!

On Friday many students absent...probably because of the unfavorable weather conditions...

We finished dealing with the Natural Approach and then you got into four groups (according to favorite colour) and worked on different sections of the chapter on TBLT.

Next class each group will present a short summary of their sections and then we will all work with some true/false statements that you had to write.

Also, we wil start working on Syllabus Design, so you have to read the material on Syllabus Design and the Diseño Curricular. Finally, you should print the questionnaire on Syllabus Design that you can find in this blog.
