Would you like to have your own blog on TeachingEnglish?

If you are a registered user on TeachingEnglish, you can write to us and ask to become a blogger. You must have a high level of English, be a teacher of English and have something to say about teaching English that is relevant to your context. Ideally, you will also have your own blog.

How does it work?

Every two months, the website editor will give you the four topics for the next two months. This post will always be at the top of the Magazine page so you can refer to it if you are not sure or have forgotten the topics. The topics are broad and will deal with one of the following categories:

  • Career development
  • Classroom ideas
  • Classroom management
  • Classroom tools and resources
  • Innovations in education
  • Methodology
  • Teacher development
  • Teaching grammar
  • Teaching the four skills
  • Testing and assessment
  • The learner
  • The learning environment

When writing your post, you must write about one of the topics given. All posts are moderated and any that do not deal with one of the topics will not be published. Do not add an image - we will do that for you.

You are limited to writing a maximum of four posts per month. Each post should have a minimum word limit of 100 words and a maximum limit of 1,000 words.

What do I have to do?

Send an email to teachingenglish@britishcouncil.org asking to become a registered blogger.

We ask all registered bloggers on TeachingEnglish to provide a short bio (50 words max, written in third person) for our dedicated profiles page, which is an opportunity for you to provide a link to other work you are doing as well as letting users know a little bit more about you. Please email us with your bio when you ask about becoming a blogger. We prefer all our bloggers to have their own personal blog so we can look at your work before making our decision, although this is not essential. If you have one, please include the link in your email. If not, you will need to provide a short sample blog post, which is your own work, on any topic that is relevant and useful to teachers in their classroom practice or professional development. Once we have made a decision on your blogging request, we will write to you informing you what to do next.

Throughout the month, we will promote your TeachingEnglish blog on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
