“CALL” IN THE CLASS: Writing blogs

This is the writing blog I have started for my students at BASICO2 at the EOI. They send me their tasks via the blog. We have a look at them in class. We suggest which points are worth considering in every letter. They check in groups for possible mistakes and correct them. We do a class correction and do some revision on writing rules (punctuation, spelling, for, etc.)

It’s good practice and they seem to get very responsible at sending their tasks on time.

EFL WEB EXPLORER (1)

I’d like to begin a series of posts to review some educational sites which I consider good resources for EFL teachers and students alike.

The first site I will mention has been developed for native speakers of English, but it might  well workfor EFL teachers and students, as far as they make a good choice of  places to visit and consider integrating their practice into their own curriculum. It is FUNBRAIN.COM. There are a few pages with some quizzes or rules for language practice which could as well work with students whose mother tongue is not English. Check these interesting sections and have fun while you learn:
