Welcome to the Successful English wiki!



What's a wiki? A wiki is simply a website that anyone can edit. It is an Internet-based service that makes it possible for users to work together to create and edit a collection of linked web pages. No special knowledge or software are needed. A wiki invites participation. For some that means dropping in from time to time to see what's new. For others it means using the discussion tabs to ask a question or make a comment. For yet others it's a place to share information and knowledge, to collaborate, and to learn.

What's the Successful English wiki?
Successful English is a wiki that I created as a place to explore and experiment with new ways of teaching, especially new ways of helping students who are acquiring English as a second or foreign language, whose goal is to successfully use the English language. It's a public-private space. It's mine, but it's open to anyone. It's a place to stop for a while to explore, to learn, or to work.

  • Second Language Acquisition & Instruction / Ideas and thoughts: in recent years there's been a significant shift in our understanding of learning and teaching and a parallel shift in our understanding of language acquisition and instruction.
  • What's feeding your thinking and teaching? I've asked a few friends to help provide Food for Thought - articles and ideas to nurture professional growth. Tasty. Nourishing. The menu will change from time to time, so stop back!
