Ayat [undisclosed]: Yes, itis !!

reem1 [reem1]: that's our question

Moderator (Session Leader): LOL Hala

lolesova [Larissa]: exactly JA - I think that the strongest interest of yours could be a good guide like in Claudio's case

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: yes Larissa

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: It is about what ticks you

lolesova [Larissa]: Exactly and what you can and want to tell the world

lolesova [Larissa]: and it should be your normal life what you love to do

hala [hala]: I stopped blogging  and I am not happy about that.

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: about a passion

lolesova [Larissa]: Hala, me either

lolesova [Larissa]: passion should come first

Moderator (Session Leader): Blogging is hard work I would say

smilingmaria [undisclosed]: agree with you Mod :)

reem1 [reem1]: i agree

lawandal [Lawan ]: hala, bloodsuker

Moderator (Session Leader): but if you have the passion all is possible

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: I am not proud about my blogs either

catherineB [catherine]: blogging takes time at first - so really need the passion

mburgos [undisclosed]: Will Richardson says the same thing.  Blogging is hard!

lolesova [Larissa]: JA, your blogs are amazing

hala [hala]: bloodsuckerism should stop after baw 2012

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: I wish I did it more often

Moderator (Session Leader): thx Maryanne, didn't know that

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: Thanks Larissa. I really think they could be better

lolesova [Larissa]: this is the biggest challenge JA and you are right. We need to devote more to our passion if we are going to keep the blog sustain

sameh [Sameh] 2: I think it is about the motivation to complete it

Ayat [undisclosed]: I agree Larissa. JA , u are doing a god work with ur blog !!

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: The absence of comments

hala [hala]: lol

lawandal [Lawan ]: lol

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: is a bloggers´ nightmare

lolesova [Larissa]: Sameh, yes, motivation is the major thing to keep everything update, right?

sameh [Sameh] 2: yeah what is after blogging?

smilingmaria [undisclosed]: of course, larisa... motivation!! all the time

BobLC [undisclosed]: It's really good when other people contribute or even if you know they are reading

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: That s when you reach bigger audiences

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: I had a blog in wordpress that received lots of traffic

Moderator (Session Leader): Claudio has now more than 1000 followers , am one of them :)

lolesova [Larissa]: Bob, it is correct when you know that people read your blog - it is rewarding and motivating

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: Caludio´s blog is just practical

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: very handy

lolesova [Larissa]: I demonstrated Claudio's blog to Yakutsk

lolesova [Larissa]: it is good for busy teachers

sameh [Sameh] 2: it might be about the audianc you are bloging for.

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: it is a life saver

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: my students love the movies

hala [hala]: Do you think of "what to blog" DURING watching the movie for the first time, or do you think about the activity and then remember which film segment to use?

lolesova [Larissa]: Sameh, the audience is important and if you know your audience it is easier to write for them -

mburgos [undisclosed]: Why blogging is still hard http://weblogg-ed.com/2009/why-blogging-is-hardstill/

Me: http://moviesegmentstoassessgrammargoals.blogspot.com/2008/11/downloading-movie-segments.html

Akaddar [Mbarek]: Thank you Claudio for your interesting and inspiring presentation . My question :Listening to native speakers is not an easy task  for students learning English a foreign language . Are there any particular ( clear) English accents you prefer to have in the segments to avoid multi tasking for your students ?

BobLC [undisclosed]: Thank you for expalining that Claudio

Moderator (Session Leader): yes mostly teachers

Notyetlanguage [undisclosed]: Oh, they wouldn't bother if it's not in the test:D

lolesova [Larissa]: But the students can download if teachers want and plan right?>

smilingmaria [undisclosed]: maybe the teacher can do it orally

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: they wouldn´t

smilingmaria [undisclosed]: without showing the sheets

mburgos [undisclosed]: Great answer!

teresadeca [Teresa]: i agree, claudio

teresadeca [Teresa]: about the student perspective

BobLC [undisclosed]: That's a good thing getting them to study on their own initiative

Ayat [undisclosed]: For the first time, students elicit the use and form and meaning of a certain tense directly after watching the segment !!!

Ayat [undisclosed]: and they also remember it for ever !!!

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: students do not know whAat scenes we will use before class

mburgos [undisclosed]: No, the answer was very good.

Moderator (Session Leader): ok

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: it is uploded

joseantoniook [Jose Antonio]: you upload the video

lolesova [Larissa]: No embedding

Gildeta [Maria Gildeta]: Thank you Claudio Your presentation was very nice.

Akaddar [Mbarek]: thank you :-)

Moderator (Session Leader): good question Mbarek :)

smilingmaria [undisclosed]: totally agree, english is everywhere

teresadeca [Teresa]: absolutely, claudio. different accents

smilingmaria [undisclosed]: different accents make studens understand different english accents

BobLC [undisclosed]: Make the task fit the student not the language

BobLC [undisclosed]: If the accent is needed then probably for higher levels for exposure

smilingmaria [undisclosed]: that's right bob!

Akaddar [Mbarek]: sure

smilingmaria [undisclosed]: authentical english!! yes :)

Gildeta [Maria Gildeta]: The focus is on grammar rather than on listening.

teresadeca [Teresa]: that's what's so good about the internet: authentic language

smilingmaria [undisclosed]: agree with you teresa :)

Ayat [undisclosed]: I agree claudio, it happens with my students !!

Moderator (Session Leader): yes visual input :)

sameh [Sameh] 2: I think I am going to use it this week I have a conversation coursse
