Hello all and welcome to our ninth issue of Saturday Scribblings. I was able to meet a fellow student that I had taught over the summer period - it was so nice meeting him face-to-face but also rather strange. I wonder if you have been able to meet your online students face-to-face.
In this issue, we will look at some videos worth watching, blog posts to read, books that you should consider getting as well as recent news.

Videos Worth Watching
The first video that I am sharing is one where I outlined five reasons to do the online CELTA course. If you are considering doing an online TEFL course, you can’t go wrong with an online CELTA course.

The next video that I am sharing is of Christian. His YouTube Channel has been a little quiet but I was so surprised to see him return with a new video after such a long break. When making videos on YouTube, you need to take time off as it can get a bit too much. Thank you Christian for your return - I look forward to watching more videos!

Books Worth Reading
This week, I decided to focus on the teaching of IELTS and some useful books which I have used in the past. I hope you enjoy this selection.
How to Teach Listening
Grammar for English Language Teachers
Blog Posts Worth Reading
The first blog post that I am sharing is about going viral as an English teacher or educator. It is an invaluable read and an insight at how things could turn as an educator/tutor. The second blog post that I am sharing includes lesson material for those involved in remote or Zoom lessons with language or vocabulary related to this.
