Online Conferences: A new trend?
Spring is certainly a popular time for TESL conferences. Have you noticed that more and more conferences are going online? A perfect example is the SkyTeach conference this weekend http://conference.skyteach.ru/ (30 speakers from around the world and more than 1,000 participants!).
Another online conference that I am thrilled to be part of is the Online Teacher Summit taking place from April 2 - 9.
There is growing interest in online language teaching so this free conference is timely. Technology allows us to teach a language from anywhere in the world. This 100% online event will provide information about the best tools and practices from experienced online teachers.

A MUST-HAVE FREE ONLINE RESOURCE!
We all make them.
It's embarrassing especially as language teachers but we all make errors. I always say that when I win a million dollars, I'm going to hire a personal editor/proofreader!
I've seen a lot of clever Grammarly ads on twitter for but never thought much about it as an app for me. I just signed up this week and it's absolutely brilliant. This free app actually proofreads my social media texts (including this blog post!)
It is also a perfect online tool for our language learning students.
