I am excited to kick off my 10th year as an international educator, teaching English to children who speak a different native language. My subject area has several names: EFL (English as a Foreign Language), ESL (English as a Second Language), ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and EAL (English as an Additional Language). After teaching EFL in Turkey and ESOL in China, I am now the Primary School EAL teacher at Vientiane International School in Laos.
Teaching offers many rewards, but the part I love best is seeing inspiration take hold in a child. After that, the tiniest nudge will send that student on a lifelong journey of enthusiastic learning. Technology often provides the key to that inspiration in today’s digital natives, so I created this blog to give my students fun and interesting web-based activities to reinforce their classroom lessons and develop their tech skills. However, you don’t have to be one of my students to use this site! Happy learning!
