Greetings to all Fellow Teachers!
Let me introduce myself as a new TESOL Member: I am Lala Sadykhova, PhD (Cultural Studies), ELT (TESOL Certified), from Moscow.
I've been teaching ESL, online and offline, to adult students, and began it with Content-Based Language Instruction, at Moscow State University, teaching humanities in English; then facilitated English and American Book Clubs, including my volunteering at the American Center in Moscow.
Having academic backgrounds in psychology, translation, and intercultural communication, I enjoy teaching English to students with any cultural and learning differences and needs; and I really like travelling, and communication with people from all over the world.
Being TESOL 2021 Convention attendee (an unforgettable experience indeed), I'm looking forward to connecting, and sharing, with you, dear colleagues.
Best wishes to all, stay safe and well,
P.S. If some of you haven't read a very interesting paper, by Dr Kate Kinsella, on language instruction through personal narrative, let me recommend it to you:
And if you want some fun, why not read this, on psychology of verbal sounds:
