Post Forum for teaching adults?
Looking at the viewing figures in the Teaching Forum, anything with "adults" in the title seems to get a huge amount of traffic.

Is there a separate forum for teaching adults struggling to get out?

So you think it might be good to have two teching forums:
'Teaching Young Learners' and 'Teaching Adults'

I might try it. If it sees some postings, then great! If it dies a slow tumbleweed beaten death, I'll just combine it with the other and ressume to business as usual.

I've seen some places that have all kinds of different sub-forums but it makes browsing difficult because you have to enter each one to browse.

My vote is to leave it be. I already have to click on 4 subforums to see the stuff I am interested in.

(Yeah, I know, it takes soooo much work to click a link...)

Maybe I'll rewrite the 'teaching forum' description and take out the 'teaching young learners' part.

I feel teaching children is my strength, but I teach more young adults and adults than I teach children, so I'm more than happy to talk about that as well. :D

I probably need to talk about that more than about children as young adult classes (uni.) seem to give me the biggest problems :P

That's great - thanks! Now it's up to those of us who mostly teach adults to come up with some interesting topics.
