Hello and welcome to the Sixth Issue of Saturday Scribblings. I hope you had a productive week. This week, I had the chance to teach a student with the IELTS Academic Reading Practice by Clements and Murphy. I also had a chance to record the lesson, so shall be sharing a video review of the book very soon.
In this week’s Scribblings, I shall be sharing some English teaching related videos, a few blog posts and some teaching news.

Videos Worth Watching
In this week’s newsletter, I am sharing one of my videos from over 5 years ago. When I made this video, I delivered a workshop about teaching young learners and shared some tips. It was in preparation for the annual summer schools and to help teachers with their lessons and engaging learners.
