Why is writing not fully integrated in elt
Why is writing not fully integrated in ELT? 21-24, 2010)

This is so partly because it is laborious and time-consuming to mark learners' compositons and partly because relatively few non-native speaking EFL teachers themselves are able to write good English.

More manageable tasks involving listening, reading and speaking receive much more attention in EFL teach, with speaking as the major mode of developing productive skills.

Those days with nature raina
Those Days with Nature twenty minutes. It involves Russia."Raina

  • When I was a little girl, I lived with my grandpa and grandma in a small village, a beautiful village on the bank of a long river. Those years I spent there composed my most beautiful memory because of my friendship with my peers, and with nature.

  • In the countryside, we were so close to the nature that we thought it our friend whom we could never ever leave. We got up as the sunshine slip into our bedrooms and the birds began their a-whole-day-long singing. And then we had a day of games with the nature—we went to the crook and caught some tadpoles back home to observe how they grew into frogs; we made nests with straw and put them

Y.LONG Guangdong University of Foreign Studies


onto the trees, hoping that more and more birds would become our neighbours; we picked the abandoned cats or chickens to the safe corners, took some cloth and food from home to them and kept them accompanied; we liked to sprawl on the farmland in the nightfall and played with the leaping crickets; we enjoyed every bright night, counting the countless stars and staring at the twinkling fireflies. At the end of a day, we slipped into the dreams where we played games with nature again under blue sky.
