The best of 2016 – TEFL articles

No actual blogging in 2016, so instead two posts on my favourite stuff I’ve published this year. My own highlight was actually finally finishing a book, but I also have fond memories of these articles:

25 stupid things about Cambridge First Certificate

20 things wrong with most self-study materials

Activities that match the questions in students’ heads

50 ways to answer the phone (in English and other languages)

Cultural differences in telephoning

80 British gestures

British body language (on topics other than gestures such as bodily contact and proximity)

Rude gestures in the UK (divided off to make the ones above family friendly U certificate articles)

How to end phone calls smoothly and politely

The most useful can/ can’t for ability activities
