About us

ELTPedia is a project created and
directed by Professor Raul García of

the ELT program at Universidad
Industrial de Santander. It is the
product of the collaboration of
students in the 'Tecnologías y
Educación' class. All content here has
been curated and/or created by the

students with the professor's
supervision. Our goal is to provide the
ELT community at UIS and everyone

interested in ELT with a space for
interaction and collaboration.

With this e-book, the students from
web design team have created a
didactic tool, which aims at
summarizing and categorizing the
most important content from the
website, whilst sharing the most
interesting material found in the
webpage.

ELT Kids

ELT kids is a section created by pre-service
teachers for EFL/ESL teachers who work with
young learners. This project was based on the

fact that many of us start our professional
development at schools with small children;
therefore, it is crucial to develop resources that
help us inside the classroom. The objective of
this section is to provide teachers with didactic
materials, and tips to follow when teaching.
Below are the sources that compose ELT Kids
materiales, You can use them as they are, or
adapt them to your classroom and students

needs.

-Lesson plans: Activities especially
designed for kids. You can find a
lesson plan per topic. 
-Worksheets: Here you will find

worksheets by topic, that you can use
when teaching. 

-Flashcards: Here you will find
different flashcards divided into
topics that you can use in your EFL

classroom.

Speaking book

Our Speaking Book is a strategy developed by
Wendy Soto, in the first semester of 2017, for the

teacher resources section in the ELTPedia
project. It intends to offer EFL and ESL teachers
more interesting materials for the development of
speaking skills. It includes 45 speaking activities
for the teaching of English as a foreign language.

Each activity includes: description, objectives,
time and printable material.

Introduction

English lower level learners generally find it
especially difficult to speak spontaneously. Thus,
these activities incorporate ‘thinking time’ in which

EFL students can prepare for speaking by
planning what they are going to say, asking the
teacher or using a dictionary to look up missing
vocabulary. The activities above are moderately
short, with the provided materials if need it, and a
proposed timing for each activity for the teacher
to implement. They are designed for free use as a
warmer or a filler in the middle or at the end of a

class. 

On the next page you will find one of the many
activities showcased on the book. To check out

more be sure to go online and download the
whole book.

Academic Skills

Listening: 

If you intend to handle spoken information in
academic contexts such as college seminars and
lectures you should get familiar with this kind of
information before. Lectures are a common way of
instruction for most university courses and even

though, the length and complexity can vary
depending on the subject and the level of education,

certain listening skills are required

Speaking:  .

Speaking a language requires certain level of
fluency and, above all, a very good pronunciation.

This article aims at giving some tips for you to
improve your pronunciation or your students'

pronunciation as well..

Reading: 

Once you have reached an advanced level, your
reading habits need to adapt to the new skills you
master. This means moving to more complex and
demanding reading, which includes digging into old

masterpieces of the language, worldwide
mainstream best-sellers and complex modern
literature. What you can do with this readings is
extremely profitable not only for academic but also

for cultural and personal growth.
