A happy and creative month to you all!
The festive season is just around the corner, so, call me BORING but today’s newsletter is going to be all about Christmas. Teach them reading through a Christmas story, give them a group of simple and easy Xmas words, show them how to create an origami North Star (not easy at all but the outcome is highly rewarding) and follow YouTube instructions to draw a professional-standards Santa Claus. So, there you go! Reading: a Xmas story. Vocabulary: Xmas words for your beginners! Crafts: the North Star Drawing: draw a super simple Santa! Training: plan and execute fascinating Xmas web-projects with your students. Learn how to run a full-blown project, complete with stages of Researching, Assembling, Building and Promoting. Do techie-stuff, teach English and have enormous fun into the bargain! Date and time: Saturday 10 December, 17:00 - 20:00. Coffee, cookies, certificates, movies and a Xmas Spirit CD-ROM just for €30! Websites: do you fancy your own Xmas thematic website with your name and logo on it, complete with crafts, carols and traditions? Design and hosting for free for as low as €50! Half the price, if purchased along with the Xmas Spirit Series. See below. 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.
