“A loser doesn't know what he'll do if he loses, but talks about what he'll do if he wins, and a winner doesn't talk about what he'll do if he wins, but knows what he'll do if he loses.”- Unknown
Hey peeps out there! What is new with Old Man Robb? Well yesterday my book finally arrived at the Acadia Bookstore!!! Methodology in Language Teaching is here and as of mid December the course is finally going to start. The goals of the book are as follows:
1) To provide a comprehensive overview of the field of second and foreign language teaching, with a particular focus on issues related to the teaching of English.
2) To provide a source of teaching principals and classroom activities which teachers can refer to in their work.
3) To provide a source of readings and activities that can be used in TESOL (Teachers of English to speakers of other language) teacer-education programs, for both preservice and in-service courses.
At 422 pages, i think Robbo has lots of reading to do....i better look something like this by the time im done reading this...
And just to let people know there is also a new used store in Wolfville and the dude has everything from CD's to Atari games!!! Intellivision too!
Personally i would love to own a bar, esp in a place like Wolfville.....if i had the $$$..what would i name it? Hoosers? McBoozers? Hawleys? Robbos? Would definitly have to have something, a sports bar would be cool...make it old school like the Rocky Mountain Tavern was in S Korea...would definitly get a jukebox and if i had $$$ a KISS pinball machine! LOL! Colt 45 on tap...ahh would be fun times...
