Is your schedule as busy as mine? I bet it is. However, being teachers, we can’t help sharing. Reading: it doesn’t have to be a drag. And students don’t have to encounter their first reading skills lessons just before their first B2 exams. Take a look at a simple activity complete with teaching tips, good for Bj to Asr. Vocabulary: teach them these vocab items: fierce, coincide, sufficient, doubt, lavish, ambition, declaration, endure, equivalent, form. Then, proceed to do this fascinating word-shoot activity. They’ll come back for more! Crafts: all work and no play... These funny paper guys will offer a pleasant break from the lesson. You can use instructional language, too! Drawing: and viewing, and listening, and enjoying an integrated-skills lesson without even being aware of it. Training: A website for a teacher or a business is much more than it looks. Far from being just a showcase of your work, it is a dynamic environment. You can use it to educate, advertise, entertain, communicate. Even the best site in the world is only as good as its updatability potential. Imagine it as an ultra-flexible e-notice board. Learning how to build and maintain your own is an indispensable skill although not an impossible one to master. Attend our seminar on February 16, Thursday, 10:00 - 13:00 and web-design will hold no mysteries for you. Websites: Have you got your own site? Can you afford not to? Can you deny yourself the web presence which is absolutely essential these days? Imagine all the things you can do with your own site: advertise, entertain, educate, communicate, inform. Would you like to have one created to your own specifications? Reasonably-priced, no host charges, easy to maintain and update. Contact me. 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. The frenzy of exam preparation has not started yet, but there’s no reason for you to be caught unprepared. Browse through our FCE, ECCE, CPE, ECPE1, ECPE2 and ESB CD-ROMs and you will certainly find something that fits your teaching context. Priced between €25 and €30 per title, they are also available in a particularly attractive package with a price tag of €90 (instead of €160) for all 6 of them.
Educate, entertain, enjoy, innovate, share and never, ever, cease being awesome.
