fionaljp 2019-01-16T19:12:13 @PhilipMErasmus I believe humour can help, yes. Also believe in the importance of creating an environment conducive to learning. #ELTchat
HelenJaneGrady 2019-01-16T19:13:50 Praise, praise,  praise every small advancement?  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2019-01-16T19:13:59 Low anxiety, sefl confidence and risk taking have often been named as traits of good language learners ~#eltchat

Marisa_C 2019-01-16T19:22:27 I think negative attitudes to error, and bad experiences of being corrected a bit aggressively... also create fear #eltchat
MoreMsJackson 2019-01-16T19:22:57 @PhilipMErasmus @Marisa_C Yes, rapport is important #ELTchat

SueAnnan 2019-01-16T19:28:06 Sorry Peeps have just finished teaching  #ELTchat
PhilipMErasmus 2019-01-16T19:28:50 It is often hard to know when the affective filter is down. When I see or sense total responsiveness, then I am satisfied. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2019-01-16T19:29:09 I think bonding the class at the start is important #ELTchat
fionaljp 2019-01-16T19:29:42 @Marisa_C @PhilipMErasmus @MoreMsJackson I think emotional well being is central to an environment conducive to learning #ELTchat

Marisa_C 2019-01-16T19:32:02 So bonding activities early on on the course - what about explaining our attitude to errors to the Ss #eltchat https://t.co/eHhJDov6Xn
SueAnnan 2019-01-16T19:32:31 @Marisa_C I like the word YET. I can’t do this YET, sounds better than complete failure #eltchat

SueAnnan 2019-01-16T19:33:18 @Marisa_C If the students don’t have errors, we don’t have jobs. #eltchat
HelenJaneGrady 2019-01-16T19:33:57 @SueAnnan Sounds interesting. Some teaching in slightly chaotic environment where not always the same students #ELTchat

PhilipMErasmus 2019-01-16T19:37:51 In the long term, I try to build a genuine relationship wirh ss, including teens and tweens. #ELTchat
MoreMsJackson 2019-01-16T19:38:40 @fionaljp @Marisa_C @SueAnnan And positive feedback for taking those risks #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2019-01-16T19:38:57 @HelenJaneGrady @SueAnnan Share success stories then rather than what we plan to do today - nice idea #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2019-01-16T19:39:05 Students get to know quickly if you have a genuine interest in them or are just paying lip service to the idea. #ELTchat
fionaljp 2019-01-16T19:40:43 @MoreMsJackson @Marisa_C @SueAnnan Yes, confidence building #ELTchat

SueAnnan 2019-01-16T19:44:08 Students come with so much baggage that we need to know about in order to do our best for them  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2019-01-16T19:45:34 I was just thinking about metacognitive strats training so that Ss become more aware of themselves as learners #ELTchat
fionaljp 2019-01-16T19:46:17 @SueAnnan Yes, interesting to think about relation between teacher motivation and student motivation #ELTchat

SueAnnan 2019-01-16T19:47:51 @Marisa_C Learner training has value in the eyes of the BC, when lesson planning #eltchat
PhilipMErasmus 2019-01-16T19:48:34 @Marisa_C #ELTchat I once did a self-evaluation survey with advanced teens at the start and end if the course. Made a huge difference.

Marisa_C 2019-01-16T19:53:48 @UrsulaRoussou Welcome! great point - know all teachers generally generate a lot of anxiety in their learners #ELTchat
PhilipMErasmus 2019-01-16T19:54:47 @SueAnnan @Marisa_C Often the case that ss have no idea whether or not they have made progress. It is for us to help them realise. #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2019-01-16T19:55:09 We may have a very western sense of what and how much distance to allow though - we need to be aware of other cultural expectations #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2019-01-16T19:55:43 @Marisa_C @UrsulaRoussou Yes. I watched one today haranguing his students when they just couldn’t ‘get’ something :-(.  #eltchat
