Rodger (1989:26, cited in Richards, 2001:39) makes a distinction between a syllabus and curriculum. According to Rodgers, syllabi (or syllabuses), which prescribe the content to be covered by a given course, form only a small part of the total school program. The curriculum is a far broader concept. The curriculum is all those activities in which children engage under the auspices of the school. This includes not only what students learn, but how they learn it, how teachers help them learn, using what supporting...  [Read more]

How can an instructor effectively use games with adult EFL students? - TEFL Blog


Tue, 30 Apr 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences How can an instructor effectively use games with adult EFL students? When I first made the transition from primary school to university, I knew that my lesson plans were clearly going to have to change. As I began to come up with ideas for my new job, I was disappointed that most of the content I previously used had no place in the university.

Designing Syllabus for Flawless Lessons - TEFL Blog

Why ESA is Still the Most Effective Methodology in the English Language Classroom - TEFL Blog


Mon, 18 Mar 2019 Mark Crocker Alumni Experiences Why ESA is Still the Most Effective Methodology in the English Language Classroom Throughout my ITTT TEFL course a specific teaching concept persisted, entitled “ESA”.
