The Chilean National English Test: A Personal Journey [Paperback]

Book Description

Publication Date: March 25, 2012

SIMCE Ingles 2010: The development of the national English test in Chile coincides with my story, which is woven autobiographically into the larger story, a test which apparently resulted in only 11% of students able to achieve a passing score.

This book will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will reveal secrets to you that you thought you already knew about tests, test-making, and test-reporting.

The Spelling Bee for EFL Teachers [Paperback]

Book Description

Publication Date: March 19, 2012

Spelling is the Cinderella of language learning.

Ask a teacher how to teach spelling, and the answer will most likely be echoed by students: Read books. PAy attention to words. Notice them. While knowing words is important, what can be done to spell unknown words is the larger question.

This book will take a look at both the spelling of known and unknown words, and be an experiential account of the author’s encounter with spelling as both a learner and a teacher of English as a Foreign Language.
