Welcome to “Common Sense Teaching ESL.”  My name is David Kehe.  For over 35 years I’ve been teaching ESL and coordinating programs, training teachers, mentoring, and writing textbooks.

I have always found it  stimulating to interact with others in the ESL field.  So it is my great hope that you will see the postings as a start of a conversation in which we can exchange ideas about how to best help our students develop their skills, how to motivate them, how to manage our classes, and how manage our own time as teachers to be most productive in the class.
