Best Of: A Retrospective Look At The TEFL Logue
It’s a new month and time for a look back at the TEFL Logue’s short history. The TEFL Logue has been in action since August 25, 2006 and, not including this post, there have been 423 posts, all but a few of them by yours truly.
While I didn’t make my New Year’s Resolution to make four TEFL Logue posts a day for the month of January, that’s still a lot of posts! And I thought, at a time like this, what better to do than pat myself on the back by sitting as the judge on the committee designated to pick out the best of all time TEFL Logue posts in several categories.
- Most Interactive: This would have to be TEFL Logue Mystery #2: What’s That Thing?
- Best Discussion In The Comments Section: Emerging Trends: English Only In The US takes first prize, but What’s Hard About Going Home takes a close second.
- Most Heart-Warming, If I Don’t Say So Myself: Cool People I’ve Met Via TEFL: My Bosnian Landlady.
- Most Likely To Inspire Fear Among Teacher Everywhere: What If I Don’t Get Paid?
- Most Boring: Dueling Coursebooks: The Headway/Cutting Edge Debate.
- Best YouTube Video Linked To: Video – Daily Life Of An English Teacher In China.
- Most Frustrating Real-Life Situation: Occupational Hazzard: Moody Appliances.
- Post Corresponding To One Of The Highest Frequency Search Terms: “Under The Table”
- Most Useful, I Think: Questions To Ask At An Interview, Master List.
- Most Likely To Inspire Teachers Everywhere To Break Out Into Laugher, Or At Least Gruffaw: Oops or Top 10: Clues That You Might Just Work In TEFL.
Thanks for your applause and also thanks for bearing with me. If you’re a blogger and you have a couple of your own “best of posts” with categories, please send them to me at tefl_logue at yahoo dot com and if I agree with you or at least find you as cheeky as me, I’ll be happy to link to them here.
