Welcome to a new year and new opportunities.

Dear bloggers

You may remember that in November of 2013 we posted a notice informing you all that we would be making some changes to our blogging procedures from January 2014. You can read about these changes here: https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/changes-teachingenglish-blog

We also emailed all of you to ask if you were happy with the changes and if you wished to continue blogging under the new guidelines. Everyone we heard back from agreed that the changes were a good thing, so we are going to be putting these changes into practice from this month.


  • The number of posts you can write will be limited. At the moment the maximum is four per month.
  • Each post you write should relate to the topics provided.
  • Please don't write more than 1,000 words per post.

So, the topics for January 2014 are:

1. What one activity or lesson do you use again and again that always works well?

2. How do you feel you have developed as a teacher in the last 12 months? What has helped you?

3. What are your top 5 tips for teaching teenagers?

4. How does blogging help you to be a better teacher?

Happy New Year and happy blogging!



Dear Paul, I have recently become a member of the TeachingEnglish community. I would like to contribute with a post but I'm ashamed to say that I'm having a hard time finding out, technically speaking, how to submit one from my profile account. I would appreciate any sort of help and guidance! Thank you!

Hi Paul,

Luckily I have just read your blog post and reader comments. I also have recently joined the community and wish to blog away, but i cant find out how to. Can you help?


Hi Rachel

I've just edited your account so you should now be able to write blog posts. You'll see 'My blog' added to your user profile in the top-left hand corner.

Happy blogging,
