      Hi boys and girls!
     The first issue of “The joy of Teaching” appears to have given some joy to some people so a second one seemed forthcoming. I would love to say that the title was the result of long and careful contemplation but it really wasn’t. It came instinctively, for, truly, a lot of joy can be found in teaching. It’s hard to be objective when talking about a passion but I’ll give it a shot. All we EFL teachers are exceptionally lucky thanks to the immense scope of our work. Our field extends way beyond the teaching of grammar structures and unfamiliar words. We can contribute to shaping a personality by choosing from a formidable array of tools in the form of digital material, which is so readily available in the web. To sum it up, I would say we can teach whatever we choose in whatever form we choose.
     And it needn’t necessarily be ELT material either. A friend once told me that “a good teacher can teach out of a phone inventory”, and in my opinion he was spot on! So without further ado, here’s the pick of the week: Educate, entertain, enjoy, innovate, share and don’t forget to be awesome.
