New TEFL stuff from the rest of 2015

TEFLtastic blog wasn’t much of a blog in 2015, and it is unlikely to become one again in 2016 given the two unintended consequences of blogging less:

One slightly disheartening effect of never blogging was a record-breaking number of hits, nearly twice last year’s at well over two million page views. That could well be because people can now click on TEFLtastic for teaching ideas and photocopiable activities without any danger of accidentally coming across attempts at humour or navel-gazing on their way there. Or it could, hopefully, be the result of the second consequence of never blogging, which is that a lack of musing on pointless TEFL-related questions has left time for a leap in the quality of the more useful stuff that I’m producing. It may not seem like it from the big list below, but I do believe, or at least sincerely hope, that 2015 was finally the year I went for quality over quantity. In fact, frankly I’m not sure I’d use any of the materials I produced before 2015 anymore
