Analysing the human behavior, we can conclude that we have a lot of conflicts everyday, what make us stressed and unhappy in most of the time. So, how can we avoid them?
First, we have to see which situations can lead to conflict in people's personal and professional lives. To much work? Problems with money? Addictions? Arguments at home? Misunderstandings? All of these cases show us a necessity of putting our bad feelings away. In my opinion, it happens because we don't have time for ourselves anymore; everything is happening very fast in our lifes (relationships, changes of informations, feelings, desires, necessities, etc) and because of it we've become anxious.
So, stop a little. Pay attention on the things around you. When I say "things" I'm talking about friendship, family, landscapes, dreams, love, hobbies. What really bring us what everyone wants: happiness. Try to escape from fights and arguments, give good vibes for the people and it will return for you :D

My takeaways from BrELT on the Road

Just in!

Coincidence or not, propositions and concepts echoed through the plenaries and concurrent sessions I attended (apologies in advance to those I could not even attend in spirit at the same time).
Jamie Keddie encouraged us to use video to let students create their own narratives and not to limit this resource to practicing target language. Thru video, students can see there are multiple perspectives that contribute to a story and we have individual interpretations of that story. In so doing, they understand there is no right or wrong - we construct meaning based on our pre-conceived notions of reality. This awareness pivotal to critical thinking. The beauty of it all is that we benefit just as much from this method as our students.
Prodding students to see differently or see the unobvious was at the heart of Claire Venables' session "Not a box". By asking students to find new uses and meanings for a box, we are giving young learners a chance to learn language that i…

Yes we can speak English

Guess I'm a sucker for projects and project-based learning. Although this latest endeavor might not be considered a project in itself.
A simple Google search on the use of Whatsapp or other instant communication tools for English-speaking skills development came up with an extensive list of results.
The idea of creating a group to practice speaking had a specific target group - English teachers who are taking an online postgraduate course on language teaching. Many of them miss the chance to brush up on their oral skills, for the simple reason that the classes are online and interaction with the professor and colleagues comes only through text. 
The initiative rekindled a professional goal I had set for myself when I created the blog Help a teacher with their English (it has been discontinued - all related posts will show up here in the future). Nothing like being able to follow through on an idea and see it materialize into something you had not even fathomed in the first place.

Learning is truly ongoing - practicing too
