The Flipped Classroom - A viable path to a more differentiated learning process and more autonomous learning in Luxemburgish classrooms?

by Roch Jennifer

The present piece of research aims to look into the ways in which the concept of the flipped classroom can be implemented in the ELT classroom in Luxembourg, not only at beginners’ level, but also at upper-intermediate and advanced levels. The flipped classroom is a model that was pioneered by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams, both chemistry teachers, who gradually came to the realization that the time when their students needed them most and could really profit from their presence...

'Dear teacher, have I told you...' Fostering writing skills through the use of dialogue journals in the EFL classroom.

by Ronny van de Berg

1 Research aims Nowadays, a big percentage of the writing which teenagers and young adults produce in their everyday lives is interactive. They send each other text messages, discuss all kinds of things on internet forums and chat on social networks. This stands in stark contrast to the writing done in the EFL classroom, which focuses mainly on individual and separate writing. In fact, the end goal of most EFL courses is essay writing, a planned and formal piece of writing...

Short Stories - An appealing educational tool in the development of writing skills in the EFL classroom.

by Rausch Nancy

Writing in a second or foreign language can represent a daunting challenge for many students, and helping them overcome the fear of the white blank page is a teacher’s role inside the English foreign language (EFL) classroom.

Teaching my 2eD from 2015-16 was rather daunting and challenging for me. I had never had a class before in which nobody spoke up or raised their hand to contribute to the lesson. I was facing twenty-eight learners, intelligent and academically successful, including seven whom I had already taught in 4e and 3e the previous years, and who appeared to equally have lost their will to express their thoughts in class. I felt very lost and helpless. How could I prepare them for their 1e if...
