The BE/ESP Blog Carnival


photo: S. Hofschlaeger /

This roundup of blog posts written by BE/ESP teachers, teacher trainers and materials writers includes personal professional blogs and regular or guest posts for a magazine or publisher. Written for two separate target groups, viz. learners vs. peers, their purpose varies widely:

  1. to reflect on personal development
  2. to share materials and start discussions
  3. to market oneself, or a group of authors, to peers and clients
  4. to organize communications with students and clients.

For a summary of all of the posts,  take a quiz to test yourself on whether you’d want to read that particular post more thoroughly. Each question contains the link you need, and background on the author.
