 Article Title :: Brief Etymological Review of the English Word-Stock
Etymologically the vocabulary of the English language is far from being homogenous. It consists of two layers - the native stock of words and the borrowed stock of words. Numerically the borrowed stock of words is considerably larger than the native stock of words.In fact native words comprise only 30% of the total number of words in the English vocabulary but the native words form the bulk of the most frequent words actually used in speech and writing. Besides, the native words have a wider range of lexical and grammatical valency, they are highly polysemantic and productive in forming word clusters and set expressions.Borrowed words or   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Teach English in Colombia: Grappling with Grammar, Gold, Guns, and Guayaba
Americans avoid Colombia for good reasons. A virtual civil war has been waged for nearly 40 years. Rates of crime and violence are among the world's highest. And then there's the "drug problem." Why would anyone consider coming here to teach English?"I came because a friend who was working in Cali liked it here and recommended it," says Glenn Yates, a teacher now in his second year at a bilingual school. Tired of Canada's frigid winters, he fled to a land of year-round warm weather and an even warmer welcome.Colin Jacobs, weary of gloomy days and drizzle, found his way to teaching English in Cali from his native England more than 20 years ago and hasn't left since. "I don't   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Try This for Perfecting Past Tense Pronunciation Practice
When I needed some fresh material for working in the past tense with my EFL, English as a Foreign Language, students in Barcelona, Spain I opted to create a short story. This three-paragraph narrative I wrote using only the past tense of regular verbs served not only for reading, but for grammar practice, spelling and pronunciation practice as well. For even more diversity and mileage, I later added comprehension questions and a verb chart for added practice activities.It has worked quite well for me. To adjust for shorter practice time or other lesson planning constraints use only one paragraph for your activities and practice. It was considerably more difficult than I’d imagine  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Learn Spanish in Spain
Spanish is undoubtedly the growth language in the world at the moment; it is now spoken by an estimated 352 million people as a first language (with a further 417 million speaking it as a second language) making it the second or third most widely spoken language in the world. Hispanic nations are also showing strong economic growth so the potential for work opportunities in Spanish speaking countries for those learning Spanish, is increasing everyday. Spanish is now arguably the second most influential language in the world behind English and in all is spoken in 21 countries around the world. South America, with the exception from Brazil, is entirely Spanish speaking, as well as areas of   (read full article)

 Article Title :: English Only in the EFL Classroom: Worth the Hassle?
IntroductionIn considering the use of L1 (the learners mother tongue) in ELT (English Language Teaching) on the part of the teacher, one of the first assumptions is that the teacher has a sufficient command of the students L1 to be of value in the first place. Another assumption which may well impact this scenario is that all the learners in a class or group have the same L1. While these assumptions may often be the case in numerous EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teaching / learning settings, many times they are not. In the case of multi-cultural classes (i.e., in the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, India, etc.) where the learners have different L1s, or when the teacher does not   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Learn Your Family Language to Connect With Your Roots
There are lots of reasons why people learn a foreign language - love, business, travel, hobby, necesity etc., but one reason that seems to pop up more and more is to connect with their roots. Many learn in order to speak with or write to relatives still using the language, others learn just to make a connection with their ancestry, to immerse themselves in their own heritage.How many people have a grandmother from 'the old country' who still speaks with a heavy accent, or an aunt who speaks more in her first language than English? Or how about some newly arrived cousins still struggling with English? Even if your family has been speaking English for generations, the vast majority o  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Grammar Teaching: Implicit or Explicit?
Based on my 15 years of EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teaching experience, the statement “grammar teaching should be implicit, not explicit” could be argued both for and against. Whether to teach grammar as an extracted focus of ELT (English Language Teaching) or more passively as an inductive, integral topic has been the theme of countless debates on the part of institutions, professors, grammarians and language researchers for decades. Grammar is the branch of linguistics dealing with the form and structure of words or morphology, and their interrelation in sentences, called syntax. The study of grammar reveals how language works, an important aspect in both English acquisitio  (read full article)

 Article Title :: To Translate or Not to Translate: What is the Question?
For me - there’s no question.Sooner or later as teachers of English as a Foreign Language, the question arises; “Do I need to translate my resume into Spanish?” After more than 20 years in the business the question still comes up occasionally even for me. Invariably you’ll need to send a resume or CV and a cover letter to a potential employer, administrator or agency. So what do you do when an ad or job notice states “send resume and cover letter with copies of certificates to: …?” My procedure is simple. I don’t translate. Here’s why:As a native-speaking English teacher you’re expected to have the highest English language level possible. By sending your   (read full article)
