TEFL Tiglets #2

Following on from my original post on TEFL Sniglets (Tiglets), here are a few more words that should be in our TEFL dictionaries but aren’t…

Active listing = what happens to a learner (a leaner) during an active listening task when they get bored and nod off.

Minimal pain = learners distinguishing easily between minimal pairs.

Kneads analysis = conducted before an ESP course for bakers.

Reduced Claus = Father Chris.

(The) Scaffolding = attempts to use Lily The Pink for an authentic listening task.

TeaTeaTea = drinks needed to stay focused during an evening of marking.
