ESL with Emotional Intelligence

ESL with Emotional Intelligence

The author has kindly given us permission to release this version of her book fro FREE during Ramadan. She has been a teacher, trainer and an academic coordinator in the English Language department for a prestigious University. Her latest training program has been accreditted by Ofqal as a level 5 Diploma. This latest work is a unique way to support people acquiring the English language. The key to successful English language is reading and writing. One of the struggles with ESL students is an intrinsic awareness of not wanting to look foolish when speaking another language. Writing journals are a great way to get a student engaged in the art of writing. What strengthens this process is when the writing is relatable and supports the development of the individual. The journals cater for ESL students with prompts related to the four intelligences, making it easy for them to write and minimising the effective filter. The journals are an excellent source for differentiated teaching and self-learning, as the subject matter is the most popular one amongst nearly all students…. Themselves. Suad Mohamed
