     See? rather simple, you jot down the word and promise next class you will

bring (or try) pronounce, history, some printout of it, what you have...

    And move on.  ESL learners have plenty in their plate (at least, I think so).   They must stay focused in grammar, vocabulary building, study strategies and so on and on.

     I am not saying that you shouldn´t give new words a stab, it´s useful, even to yourself; since them don´t 'break' the flow of thinking, the learning rhythm.

     If a matter proves to hard, ask a friend teacher, a native/an expert in the matter/a site and even come to the EMB.  We have Dale, Pat, Josi and many others, he he he.

     Kidding a little bit!   

     Be simple, some day ago my son asked me a question, don´t remember now...but

let´s imagine that was about what is a nurse (In portuguese).  Imagine if I am going into

detailed explanation about night shifts/day shifts, shot gauges, anestestetics, surgeries, etc.  Nurse is the woman that treats you when you are sick, period!

    So, in many ways; ELS are like children and it doesn´t takes an expert to answer them.  Naturally, not all of them, there are ones that have medical backgrounds, for example, having parents into law or medicine profession, or even into rocket science...these ones can even help you in explaining things to the others.

      Provided that he/she don´t think he/she is the teacher.

      Summimg it up; creativity, commom sense, interactivity and humbleness is good to everyone.

      Win-win situation, then.

       I wish you good luck in your classes, and if there is something we can help, within our abilities, here we are.
