My most popular TEFL.net articles

This list is based on stats which are almost a year old, but wanted some way to mark the ending of my series of over 270 TEFL articles on TEFLnet.

Not many great surprises in the list – for example, it seems many people share my inability to shake off an obsession with teaching tenses (though I have since got over wasting much time on Reported Speech and Past Perfect). It’s nice to see people preparing for the CELTA, agreeing with me that beginners can really communicate, paying attention to pron and determiners, teaching classroom English as well as using it, being adventurous with movement in adult classes, paying attention to cultural differences, and hopefully using mingling activities that are slightly better than the usual ones. It’s also always nice to see when time spent on a seemingly obscure topic like using From Head to Toe for EFL gets some attention – surprisingly often the case.

Not many actual unusual or adventurous topics in there, so have also done a list of my wackier articles on TN and its sister site EnglishClub. If that ain’t enough for you, my over 400 articles are arranged by topic here and by place here.
