English Land – “Ask Akiko” Forum

“I love teaching kids. It’s incredibly rewarding, but I do wish I had someone handy to talk to about challenges in the classroom.”

Have you ever felt the same way?

“Ask Akiko” is an exciting new web forum designed specifically for primary English teachers. Created in celebration of the launch of English Land 2nd Edition by Pearson and the book’s co-author Akiko Seino, this forum is designed to make English teachers’ lives easier by providing an interactive platform where teachers can post questions and share tips and tricks with each other.

Whether you are struggling to get your first graders to engage in reading activities or you simply would like some activity suggestions for mixed-level classes, this space is designed to provide those answers. Questions and comments will be responded to by Akiko, Pearson and other primary English teachers.

We hope that this forum will prove to be a useful space. Feel free to post any English teaching-related questions, ideas or tips!
