LETTERS, THE TEACHER'S ELVES



I’m sure we sometimes finish the lesson before the planned time or we see that our students are lost and aren’t following us then we tend to find something to motivate them.



It’s always a good idea to have something ready for these moments. Fillers are great. They are short, energising and motivating.



Whenever I feel we are stuck in the middle of the lesson and have nothing to continue, I use one of the simplest tools that I have,… Continue

Use these two words and become a better student

Words are powerful.And you do not only know that since your last exam. A single word can change everything: it can make you the victor, save relationships, calm you down or pull you into the abyss.Finding the right words is an art that not everyone masters. Some use their words inflationary and put one empty phrase to the next. Others put every word on the gold scale and interpret everything possible into what is said.But your choice of words not only affects how other people perceive you. Your…See More
