Travel in Singapore
Why oh why didn't I go to Singapore on my travels? Probably because I heard it was boring as hell, but after this guide on the STA travel blog maybe I should have gone to Singapore.

Boost your students vocabulary
One of my personal goals this year is to work out ways to boost my students vocabulary. I have become to realise it is key for learning English and helps in all areas. Anyway, check out this post with signs for building vocabulary, a witty collection of funny signs.

Using video in class
This clip on My that's English is handy for presenting a shopping clip in class with interviews from real live people, as opposed to make up ones, or invisible ones who only speak from the corner of the room. Use video in class and enhance your students learning.

Numbers and measurements
This is such a basic concept that I always tend to skim over, especially with adults, but I've begun to realise how important numbers and measurements are in students vocabulary.

Reflect on your teaching
How many times do you get to the end of the week, month, or even year, and just forget about it? One thing I learnt on the DELTA was the importance of reflecting on my teaching. This is a great article on ways to enhance your teaching. It's a long one, so make sure you have some time to reflect.

Teach in Asia
There's nothing like a decent real life TEFL story. Have a look at this article by Mike, on Lillie's Teaching traveling.

International drinking rules
If you're up for a bit of a laugh, then check out this post on Matador Network about international drinking rules by Colin Heinrich.

That's all for this month.
