Teflnet Site Of The Month ~ Chiasuanchong
TEFL Site of the Month August 2012
Some of the best TEFL sites for professional development these days are actually blogs. Chia Suan Chong, an English language teacher and teacher trainer in London, tackles some of the most interesting topics in the ELT industry. Her recent blog series “The Devil’s Advocate” examines some of the recent controversies. Chia, the DA, invites conference speakers, textbook writers, and other bloggers to debate topics such as learning styles, technology, and most recently ESP. Her popular series on Dogme resulted in a Teach-Off with her DOS, which was followed closely by English language teachers around the world. Chia also comments on the conferences that she attends, and shares valuable material from her own talks, which often focus on ELF. In addition to her own blog she writes for ELT Knowledge.
