Be a teacher who does magic!

Welcome to TEFLMagic.com

Do you ever have difficulties finding ways to make your classes more fun and more engaging for your pupils?

TEFLMagic is an online course which shows teachers of English as a foreign language how to integrate into their classes magic tricks and mentalism effects which are specifically designed for presenting, practising and revising vocabulary and grammar.

 

Hi, my name's Alan Smith Robertson and I've been a teacher of English as a Second Language in Spain since 1994.

I know that starting your career as an English teacher can be hard; it's a very competitive market and it's really important to be able to set yourself apart from other teachers and improve your employability.

I also know that teaching can be difficult, that after a few years it can get boring and repetitive, and I know that motivating your students is often mission impossible,

However, of all the many different approaches, methods and techniques that I have used in the classroom, what has undoubtedly produced the best results and what has achieved the best reactions is the use of magic and mentalism.

You see, magic can be a lot more than just a fun alternative to drilling vocabulary, magic has an incredible pedagogical potential...

  • it stimulates the learning process,
  • it motivates students,
  • it encourages creativity, imagination and autonomy,
  • it instills a sense of meaning,
  • it provides a feeling of mastery,
  • it creates super-engagement,
  • it improves social skills, confidence & self-esteem.

 

You can use it in a flipped classroom, in any kind of learning environment, you can adapt it to almost any kind of learning model and even treat it like a CLIL; a Content and Language Integrated Learning class.

Studies conducted by the British Association for the Advancement of Science demonstrated that "showing and teaching the children magic tricks encourages skills, such as self-discipline - unless you practice magic skills you will fail - and critical thinking. It also helps children to think from another person's perspective, and consider how they are feeling".

And over the next 70 or so videos, I'm going to show and explain to you some of my favourite, most adaptable, and easiest magic tricks and mentalism effects, and I'll explain how you can integrate them, not only into your language classes, but indeed into your whole syllabus as an independent element of gamification.

And whether you want to motivate your students, or whether you want to set yourself apart from other teachers and improve your employability, or whether you're simply bored with teaching and you want to shake things up and do something different in the classroom, I can guarantee that you'll find something in this course that will fulfill your needs.

 

WARNING: This course will make you a cool teacher!

About the instructor

I've been teaching English as a Foreign Language in Spain since 1994. I've been a teacher at the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas since 2002, and was headmaster there from 2007 to 2013.

I currently run several TEFL-related websites including a chatbot called Leslie Linguo, an online grammar checker, or a directory of hand-picked songs whose lyrics can be used to practice vocabulary or grammar in the classroom.

I also recently began using magic and mentalism (a hobby of mine) in the classroom to present, practice and revise new contents.
