Teaching English today – the 4 Cs and beyond

We’ve all heard of the 4 Cs – collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, communication –, but what if there were other key skills and qualities? What about the power of curiosity, the value of empathy and the need for grit? Join me – and my guests – as we delve into these core skills in this podcast series and work out just what their importance is for students of English.

Episode 1: Introducing the 4 Cs

Episode 1: Introducing the 4 Cs

Who came up with the idea for the 4 Cs? Why are they so important for today’s students? Which other skills and qualities will they need? And how does this all inform English teaching today? Come and join me as we explore the answers in this inaugural podcast in the series Learning English Today – the 4 Cs and beyond!


Episode 2: It all begins with curiosity

Episode 2: It all begins with curiosity

As humans, we are driven by curiosity, the urge to answer the question why. But why is this? What does research tell us about its importance for learning? What can we do to create an environment that fosters curiosity? And what are some of the consequences for teaching English? Come and join me to find out more!


Episode 3: Delving deeper: critical thinking

Episode 3: Delving deeper: critical thinking

Critical thinking is one of the most in-demand skills for the workplace today. But what does it actually entail, and how can we train ourselves to become better at it? In this episode, I’ll also be talking to the English teacher Jürgen Thamerus to find out how he hones his students’ critical thinking skills in the classroom. So why not come and join us?


Episode 4: At the heart of being human lies creativity

Episode 4: At the heart of being human lies creativity

Creativity is central to who we are as humans. It’s not only essential for our personal and social wellbeing but is also a skill that is in great demand. Come and join me as we look at different levels and kinds of creativity, ways we can cultivate it (yes, everyone is creative!) and what we can do to foster it in schools and the English classroom!


Episode 5: Working towards a common goal: collaboration

Episode 5: Working towards a common goal: collaboration

Collaboration is about the process of working together towards a common goal, and it’s essential in today’s world. But working well in a team and having a shared mindset do not necessarily come naturally to us. This is because effective collaboration requires a range of qualities and skills. The good news is that students can already begin to hone them in the classroom. Listen in to find out more!


Episode 6: Finding common ground: communication

Episode 6: Finding common ground: communication

Today, we are used to communicating across a range of media on a regular basis. But this does not mean that it’s something we do well. Join me to find out what happens to our brains when we communicate, which factors hinder effective communication and what this means for the English classroom.

Episode 8: Stepping into someone else’s shoes: empathy

Episode 8: Stepping into someone else’s shoes: empathy

Empathy is considered one of the most important resources we have. But what is it? What habits do highly empathetic people have, and how can we learn to develop greater empathy?

Grit has been shown to play an important role in why people succeed. But what is it that makes some people grittier than others? In this podcast we’ll be looking at the role resilience plays, how a growth mindset is key and some strategies for building grit that also work in the classroom.


Episode 10: Exercising agency

Episode 10: Exercising agency

Leaner agency is not only important for school but essential for life-long learning. It’s not a quality that we are either born with or not, but an ongoing process that unfolds over time.
