S… L… O…W!

My worse fear!

I am a habitual fast-talker. In every language. Even with myself, in my head. I would like to say that I’ve gotten better over my 15 years of teaching, but I might be lying. I think my students just humor me.

Now, I’m facing a new school year of (90%, I so want to say 100%) Comprehensible Input and the most important thing to being comprenshible is talking SLOW!

I’m exhausted even thinking of it.

What follows is nothing more than a collection of resources I’ve gathered to keep me humble and to remind me that this is VERY important.

If I do nothing else right…

Just go SLOW!
