Feedback is precious. Just as it is for teachers, publishers like my team at Edulang sincerely do care how their materials are being enjoyed (or not).  Thankfully, I get mostly GREAT feedback from not only online and offline teachers, but students, trainers, schools and so I can’t help but share a bit of what I’m hearing with you.   STUDENTS I went on Englishaddicts and tried a free lesson, then I instantly fell in love with it, and therefore I decided to subscribe to it. -Donzen, china   I just purchased a Test Simulator and English Addicts access and both tools (…)

Freebies for #ELT professionals

thumbnail

    Every Saturday I go to the local market and I know very well why I go… 1) The produce is better and a cook like me knows how important that is. 2) The folks that sell it depend on their direct clients and there’s a more colorful relationship than with the supermarket around the corner.   Also, one my favorite thing about these local markets relationship is the “freebies“, or the age-old offer of a taste of watermelon, ya know that “try these new strawberries I got in”, or the, “well you’ve bought so much fish, I’m going (…)
