LONDON DIARY, May 23.


Living and studying in London is a fascinating experience I`d like to share with other teachers. So, I decided to keep and update this diary about academic activities at the Institute of Education, University of London and also my personal relationship with this amazing city.

There are some files you`d be interested in taking a look specially if you`re a language teacher:

The Institute of Education, University of London http://www.ioe.ac.uk/index.html has the largest library on education of the whole Europe and a large number of articles are available on the internet http://dera.ioe.ac.uk/, not only concerning language teaching, but also other areas of interest in education.

TEACHING EXTENSIVE READING

I love reading. I am the sort of person who is always talking about a book that I`ve recently read or the next one  in my list. We teachers would love to foster that kind of interst for books in their students. We all have the dream of seeing them talking about their reading experiences with the same enthusiasm they talk about other things such as their favorite sport, game, etc. Well, as always there is not a recipe. Even though, I found that article we studied here very interesting and you might also find it useful in your teaching context.
