April 17 #LINCchat Summary: Tools and Strategies for Teaching Listening Skills


The April 17 #LINCchat was all about listening skills and strategies. #LINCchat is not just for #LINC instructors; we discuss topics of interest to everyone teaching and working in English Language Teaching (#ELT). Thanks to @BCTEAL for posting the summaries here on the BC TEAL blog. Svetlana Lupasco (@StanzaSL) for keeping the questions coming during the chat. And thanks to all the participants and people who followed the hashtag and added to the conversation during and after the chat. You can grow your Personal Learning Network (PLN) by following these educators on Twitter.
