*global syllabus from an Administration Committee (all Communities represented)

*unique examinations the same day for all Communities

*weekly inspection work : support and guidance to teachers

*qualifications depending on Administration Committee and teachers from every school every term. Discuss percentage of responsibilities

*recycling strategies of teaching in the classroom

Free style free

I feel fine being unpredictable. Free style teaching language, letting students not know what is coming next, asking for a lot of homework at the end of the period, walking around the classroom, controlling and checking their real work.

Basically I work with grammar, explanations on any topic, audios and textbook. Also I want my students to sing as in a choir echoing interesting phrases or messages. Reinforcement via workbooks or extra exercises.

Teaching and testing, teaching and testing. Lots of practice and homework. Loads of writing work, too. A student who doesn´t write won´t be a good one. Dictations, translations, substitution tables, …

Quick reviews and mini tests, oral skill practice and testing, parallel papers, short messages and essay writing, how to write letters or read notices. Share information and curious hunger for the British and American culture.

Reading aloud and reading in low voice (class and at home), using dictionaries and functional language in class for everything, getting marks for any task they do. Notebooks like passports full with exercises, notes, vocabulary and pictures, good behaviour in and out of the classroom, moodle participation, podcasting, etcetera.

Suppose you teach a foreign language at school,

Imagine you choose the best five activities, grammar and words

Nothing else must be done except wondering which five things would be

Grab some audios and texts; check your pupils´s learning by means of tests

Sing a song of love and play games; oh, man, that´s cool!

Invent stories and tales, draw pictures and move

No matter how long these things take , for God´s sake!

Good teachers never fail to read a mermaid´s mail
