For example, learners may research adult education resources in their community and create a handbook to share with other language learners in their program, or they might interview local employers and then create a bar graph mapping the employers, responses to questions about qualities they look for in employees. This digest provides a rationale for using project-based learning with adult English language learners, describes the process, and gives examples of how the staff of an adult English as a second language ESL program have used project-based learning with their adult learners at varying levels of English proficiency. Rationale for Project-based Learning Project-based learning functions as a bridge between using English in class and using English in real life situations outside of class Fried-Booth,
I had a wonderful time, and I really felt at home—I discovered that Mexicans have a lot in common with my people Egyptians. I was very pleased to do so, and here are the key eight trends that I talked about.

Content and language integrate learning CLIL is an approach where the English teacher uses cross-curricular content and so the students learn both the content and English. Early Start in Teaching English Many countries have started teaching English in earlier grades at school.
Also inJapan introduced English in the primary stage, and, inDubai introduced English in the KG stage instead of Grade 1. Change in the Approach to Teaching Culture Both the local or native and international culture dominate in English language classes.
There is less focus on teaching the culture of native speakers of English unless there is a specific purpose for doing so. Changing View of an English Teacher It is increasingly being recognized that the quality or effectiveness of teachers is determined by their linguistic, teaching, and intercultural competence rather than their being a native speaker of English.
Change in Teaching Content and Test Design Teachers use a range of local texts or English translations of literature in the classroom. The use of L1 as appropriate as well as the use of a variety of accents in listening activities or tests are encouraged in English language classrooms.
E-Learning Because of the proliferation of tablets and smart phones, I believe that textbooks will disappear in a few years. Furthermore, the access to knowledge in terms of flexibility and mobility has changed drastically.
Strategic Teaching and Learning Teaching in English language classes focuses on fostering student thinking as well as language content, outcomes, and learning activities. There are significant and complex student-teacher interactions inside and outside the classroom.
The gamification of learning is emerging as a way to make language learning more engaging and relevant to the younger generation.
Teachers as Life-Long Learners In a knowledge-based society and to remain competitive and employable, teachers are expected to engage in continuous professional development or professional learning activities from the beginning to the end of their careers.
As with any other profession, teachers are also expected to assume greater responsibility for their own professional learning, continually developing their knowledge and skills. How have these trends affected your teaching?
