Have a nice day and enjoy a well-deserved break in your busy schedule.
Here’s your stuff!
Reading: a reasonably easy text for your B2+ classes about the role of Greece in the 2nd World War.
Vocabulary: as a follow-up to the previous text, present them with a list of words associated to war.
Crafts: bottle top monsters for a spooky Halloween! Easy to make, room for improvisation, tons of fun!
Recipe of the week: the humble roast potato (or actually not humble at all) raised to new heights of perfection, by the one and only Jamie Oliver. Actually, this is also good for viewing, listening, and of course drooling!
Training. A: GAME DESIGN In the new, 2-hour workshop, we learn how to design educational games and then make them available to our students online. Sounds daunting? Fear not. It’s a piece of cake, a walk in the park, as easy as pie and I’ve just run out of metaphors. COCKPIT PROJECT Manage all your online and offline resources from a single icon on your desktop. During the seminar, you can browse through our range of nearly 80 CD-ROM titles.
CD of the week. We are now well past the beginning of the year, so why not try some activities guaranteed to develop your students’ active vocabulary? Mind you, this has always been a thorny area. You are well acquainted with this situation of the grammar-perfect class who cannot express themselves due to lack of lexis. The LEXISFLEX series will change that. 11 levels (pre-school to C2), 1,700 words, 410 exercises, 126 thematic groups, more than 20 different types of activities will work wonders with your classes, maintaining their interest and motivating them with a great variety of tasks. I’ve seen it in practice and I can’t help marvelling at how the tasks activate my students’ productive skills.
Educate, entertain, enjoy, innovate, share and never, ever, cease being awesome.
