Bouncing Back


I would like to start this post with a quotation from the movie Forrest Gump, where Forrest in the beginning of the movie says “Life is like a box of chocolate; you never know what you’re gonna get.” With the beginning of 2011, I thought that I would be kept busy all the time by this website and that I would neglect everything else; I stand corrected. Unfortunately, the break from this website that I thought would last only a couple of weeks turned into 3+ months.

Anyways, keeping the excuses aside, I am here to announce that the website will be up and running again on irregular basis starting this week and that articles will be published here whenever time allows. This way, I give no promises and you can stop pointing fingers whenever you see me in the street. I have been researching and reading about teaching techniques a lot recently and I have come across some very interesting things which I cannot wait to tell you about.

That being said, I hope you guys visit That Morning Coffee more often and leave a comment if you like what you read.

Coming up

Go Spontaneity!

Planning beforehand for everything has been for long a theme for me, but I think now is a good time to change. After several unlucky attempts to build a website and bring it up to light, I decided to give spontaneity a go. Right now, I’m going with the first idea that popped into my head: Sharing what I know about TEFL with my teacher friends. And so, I write the last lines of this post in hope that you find the coming posts about what I’ve learned so far about TEFL useful. Also, please feel free to leave any comments you may have or send an email to alve8008[at]
