Perfect husband ????

Well, I think everything a woman needs is love and respect.

Anyway, for me the statement from the list that best define the "perfect" husband is:

* Is faithful to you in an old fashion way - no flings

The perfect wife :

Believe in him. Your husband needs to know that if he fails to succeed at something or makes a mistake, you'll still be right there. Your emotional support gives him confidence.

Accept who he is. No one is flawless, and though there may be some things you'd like to change about him, he is who he is. He needs to feel loved by you for who and what he is, not what he could be changed into.

Give him guy time. Just as women like to bond with shopping, phone conversations or other quality time, men need time to communicate and spend time with male friends. It can be a stress reliever and a time for them to kick back with friends.

Communicate gently. This doesn't mean you have to be subtle or indirect when talking with your husband, just be aware of your tone in an argumentive state that could be described by him as nagging.

Encourage him. If your husband has a dream or something you know he would absolutely love to do but needs a little nudge, give him a little push and boost of confidence. He'll see your support but also take your encouragement as reinforcement of your desire for him to be happy.

Be direct and to the point. Men can sometimes get lost in too much detail, and aren't the best at mind-reading. If you want or need something, tell him--don't expect him to know what's on your mind.

Perfect husband? Perfect wife?

Perfection is a journey not a destination. Always better being imperfectly perfect rather than perfectly imperfect."

I think perfect husbands and perfect wives must be boring people.

The desirable partner is the one you're always proud of.
A successful marriage is made of everyday's acceptance and agreement.

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
