Need help ,please !   
How are you all my dear teachers , I really appreciate your help if you can , I am going to prepare and present a workshop about "e.learning vs traditional methods of teaching " I collected some data but I need your help , points of view and some resources to work on them . Thanks a lot . By the way "What īs your opinion about the topic ?"

I think e-learning is great for those who know how to manage their time and can study independently. It allows you to learn and advance at your own pace which is a wonderful thing because it takes away a lot of the pressure of learning something within a set time limit.

However, in my honest opinion, e.learning should be a tool that goes hand in hand with traditional classroom settings. There is no substitution for human interaction in the e.learning process, something that a lot of people need. In general, you need to talk, practice o interact with people to learn a language... how else do we know if other people understand us, or that we are saying things in a correct way? Or gain the confidence to actually use what we have learned, if we don īt use or practice it?

Traditional methods are obviously not the only or even the best way to learn because everybody learns differently and no one method suits every person. (And there are TONS of "traditional" and "non-traditional" methods out there.) That said, both forms of learning, if used together, can be a great way to motivate students in the classroom.

Just + Present Continuous   
Is using "just" with Present Continuous correct?

I īve heard somewhere that it isn īt and I īm totally surprised because I was taught at school that "just" is one of the typical expressions of this tense.

Help me please :)

"I īm just coming" or "I īm just doing it now" can also be used if someone asks you to do something and you are right in the middle of doing it as they ask you. It īs often used by teenagers who are frustrated with their parents. "Tidy your room! - Yeah, mum, I īm just doing it!"

Using Skype at school?   
Dear colleagues, I come to you for a little survey: I planned to use Skype (occasionally) in my classroom to have my students communicate with their correspondents. I thought it was a great idea, silly me! Ermm
I īve been told Skype wasn īt īsafe ī and so that I couldn īt use it with the school network. Period.
I believe lots of teachers use it around the world. I even heard of French schools having projects with Skype. If you are one of these lucky teachers, could you let me know how you do it?
Thanks, and have a great day!

I īm also convinced Skype could be a useful tool for language teachers. Sadly I have the same stupid school administrators who decided that skype and network are dangerous.
Last year I had one of my students who needed to do a skype interview for a work experience in Canada. I had to use my own material and phone connexions etc to by-pass the schoolsystem.  So it is.  We are not all lucky, so tresspassing is easy but it has a cost of course. I īm sure part of your students can skype with their own sophisticated phones which we mostly do not have.
Anyway have a great day !

500 - Internal server error. There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.   
I received this message when I tried to log in. I cleared my cookies and browser settings and now I can log in.  I searched the internet and found several instances in the forum at eslprintables where others reported this 500 error when uploading files that were too large.

No one mentioned the 500 error in the forum for login problems, so I wanted to share the solution in case it ever happens to another member. In my case, I changed my  avatar and password and I guess the  previously set cookies could not reconcile the new password.
