Why diigo could be your new best friend (IH Journal)

The latest IH Journal is now available, featuring a beginner’s guide to diigo written by me. Diigo is a service which I started using about five years ago, and which completely changed my approach to using the internet! Head over to the article to find out how, and learn to use it yourself.

The journal features articles by contributors from around the world. This issue has a materials writing focus, but also features columns on teacher training, teaching young learners, using technology, management and working with exam classes, among many others. The contents list is available in the right-hand bar on the main IHJ page, and the whole journal is here. You can also read past issues of the journal.

  1. I have a dilemma and I hope you will help me to work it out. I have recently participated as assessor in an English contest, so-called English Olympiad and there was an exercise in which students had to put the verbs in the correct tense. For the sentence: I am in a hurry! My train ( leave) in 10′. We have been arguing about the right answer either:
    Leaves or is leaving. I said both might be correct so take them as valid answers, but other contradict as the information is about the train timetabe. What do you think? What is your opinion about it?


    1. Hi Nicole,
      I would say that both of them are fine in that context. You can see in the BYU BNC corpus that there are almost the same number of examples of each of the two structures (15 v 17).
      I hope that helps!
