I'll add this to this blog's links, but here is the address and its description below. This seems to be about much of the same focus as ELT-J--teaching English in Japan, much of it at the tertiary level.
Hello and welcome to *eisensei!
I decided to create this blog with the intent of improving my teaching skills. Please allow me to explain:
I am currently teaching English at a post-secondary institution in Japan. While I really enjoy my work, I have to say that I cannot help feeling somewhat isolated - meaning that there are no other full-time EFL instructors with whom I could discuss ideas and techniques. Although I do have experience, I think it is still important to bounce ideas off of others and get advice on different areas of teaching. Now, I do belong to several associations, subscribe to a few journals, and am a member on some forums, which have helped me greatly, but I think that again it is that contact with others in the same situation that can help the most. You are probably now thinking that I should just go and post on different forums, but what I am planning to do is a little different - I intend to post my lesson plans, my materials and notes of my classes - keeping privacy in mind - with the hope that you, my teaching peers, may give me advice that may help me become a better teacher, and in return, I hope that my blog can also help you in your teaching as well.
