Nives' endeavours as an English Teacher

E-book with Phil Wade

Leave a comment

The thought of writing is one thing, then actually getting down to doing it is another thing altogether. Some time ago Phil Wade reached out to the teaching community via the Facebook Teacher groups asking for collaborators. The thought crossed my mind that I would definitely like to learn how to go about writing an E-book and also collaborating with a very experienced writer as is Phil Wade. Hence I applied and was accepted then the drafts began flying back and forth until the final product some weeks later came to fruition.
The experience was such that I now admire Phil Wade even more and acknowledge the hard work that goes into producing even a short five page book not to mention the publishing too. However ‘hard’ it was, the learning path has been exciting and another step in the life long learning career that I have delved upon.
Teaching a wide range of learners from preschoolers to teens to young adults and onto business managers has not been as smooth as it may seem on a curriculum vitae. The onset of technology in the language learning classroom has more often than not, made the work of the EFL Teacher that much more committed. Either with the production of tailored materials for the discerning manager or ‘learning games’ for the teens to elicit engagement, all via digital formats has meant that Teacher time is divided into preparation, correction and facilitating the learning.
The E-book in collaboration with Phil Wade is only one of the topics that is often encountered in the busy life of a business manager. Collating all that experience and knowledge to turn that same innocuous information used in a face to face classroom or virtual environment, with the very committed assistance by Phil to make it look as professional as possible is the outcome of this mini e-book aimed at EFL/ESL Teachers in the Business English environment.
