Originally spotted on Simon Thomas’ efl-resource – it appears The Economist has become aware of it’s own potential in the ELT sphere! They’re asking their readers, ELT professionals in particular, for their thoughts in how to make best use of Economist material in the classroom and how The Economist can help us to help our learners access their material.
Even if you don’t have any strong desire to contribute to the debate – it’s probably worth taking a look at the article and the comments section underneath it – lots of ideas from people about how they use The Economist!

I have only now read this blog and even though it’s from 2012, a huge, simple grammar error needs to be corrected. The possessive “its” has no apostrophe. I refer to the phrase “aware of it’s own potential”.
This blog is aimed at TEFL teachers, is it not?

It’s aimed at teachers and I apologise for its errors. 🙂
A typo only, not in any way an inherent flaw!
