Jennifer says, “I attended MATSOL for the first time last week. On Friday, I joined Pamela Vittorio, the lead author for Next Generation Grammar 3, to talk about our work on Pearson’s newest grammar series. I was thankful that I was able to hear one of the keynote speakers and attend a couple of sessions before the day was through. I’m happy I can share some highlights with you. I’ll start with the keynote speaker at the Friday luncheon.”

Article: ‘How Much is Too Much? What Place Does Grammar Have in Speaking Class’

The BusyTeacher team has published an article titled ”’How Much is Too Much? What Place Does Grammar Have in Speaking Class”.

At times, though, a student can focus on grammar too much. Throughout my years of teaching ESL, I have had many students who spend the majority of their language learning energy on grammar, writing and reading. Sometimes these students overly pursue written language and don’t spend any time on the spoken language. When this happens, the speaking teacher may not know where the fine line between grammar and speaking is, or if there even is a line dividing the two. The following are suggestions on how to include grammar in the speaking classroom without letting it overwhelm your speaking class.

Teaching English Grammar – Are you bored or boring?


This is best video on  I’m bored? I’m boring? Not sure of the difference? Better watch this lesson then, or you could be saying something rather rude about yourself!. It’s very useful for English Language Teacher.

Conference in Sri Lanka: International Conference on Language, Literature & Linguistics 2013 ( LLL 2013), 2 – 3 December, 2013

Language plays an important role in  the modern society and represent diverse aspirations and needs ,cultures, traditions, and practices. Literature represents a language or a people: culture and tradition. Literature introduces us to new worlds of experience. We learn about books and literature; we enjoy the comedies and the tragedies of poems, stories, and plays; and we may even grow and evolve through our literary journey with books. Linguistics offers different approaches to the study of how communities, groups and individuals communicate with one another.

Article: ‘Correcting Student Error in Writing and Speech: When, How, and How Much’

The BusyTeacher team has published an article titled “Correcting Student Error in Writing and Speech: When, How, and How Much”.

Is the language situation an informal situation or formal one? Is the student speaking extemporaneously or writing a first draft, or has she had time to plan and reflect? Who are the participants in the situation—other students or the larger community, for example? All of these considerations matter in deciding if it’s appropriate or not to correct student error. Even native speakers, actually, sometimes make mistakes like subject/verb agreement errors when engaged in spontaneous speech in an informal situation. It’s just that nobody really notices their errors. We tend to be more attuned to the errors students and nonnative speakers make as we’re looking for them; we assume native speakers “know better” and won’t make errors.

‘On a pair of alternatives’ by David Crystal

David Crystal’s latest blog post is titled “On a pair of alternatives”.

David says, “As with so many grammar questions, the answer is ‘it depends’. If usage is split, there’s invariably a reason for it. In this case, the issue is one of ‘notional concord’ – that is, the verb agrees with the part of the subject that is most important in the speaker’s mind. If the sentence had been The jeans are on the table there would have been no problem.”

‘Creativity, the IMAGE CONFERENCE and List Making’ by Naomi Epstein

Naomi Epstein’s latest blog post is titled “Creativity, the IMAGE CONFERENCE and List Making”.

Naomi says, “The word “visualising” in this blog’s title is no coincidence. I’m quite mesmerised by the power of visual images and the sheer joy of experimenting with them (or should I say playing?!).  I admit to shamelessly informing my eldest son, who’s interest in photography has been steadily growing over the past two years, which of his pictures I need for my blog or for class. It works for the way words evoke visual images too – remember James Thurber’s delightful story “My Secret World of Idioms”?”

‘To separate or not? (2) – a little experiment’ by Warsaw Will

Warsaw Will’s latest blog post is titled “To separate or not? (2) – a little experiment”.

Warsaw says, “As you know, there are many phrasal verbs which can take a direct object, and where that direct object can come between the verb and the particle or after the particle. These are often known as seperable phrasal verbs:…”
