And for state-of-the-art software:
A. Active Vocabulary is a thorny issue. It doesn’t have to be boring though! Our Lexisflex series provides great practice activities, and such a variety of task types that kids will never be bored doing them, as they won’t know what’s just around the corner. (You will, though, since the Syllabus is there for you to download through my site - download the levels you prefer, print them and incorporate them in your teaching. 5 minutes a week is as little as you can devote to the development of lexical competence.
B. Xmas Spirit! A series of CD-ROMs ranging from pre-school to E class, with grammar and vocab revision activities and carols. Ideal for your classes, but good as gifts as well, at an unheard of price! €3 per level, €20 for the whole series of eight CD-ROMs, with 5 Xmas movies thrown in!
Educate, entertain, enjoy, innovate, share and never, ever, cease being awesome.
