Spring seems to be well on its way, so our mood might start loosening up although our workload might not! Therefore, let us try to be productive and creative at the same time! Sounds like quite a challenge, doesn’t it! Grammar: a brilliant game that will help our junior - low elementary students assimilate comparative form. Crafts: a paper-plate ladybug will offer all sorts of craft-related instructional language as well as tons of fun for our pre-junior and junior classes. Vocabulary: a parts-of-the-house vocab group is a staple for our bj - asr classes more often than not. Let’s make it illustrated, interactive and fun. Video: I stumbled upon this 10-minute clip the other day. Nice narrative, clear accent and English- subtitled (although you can remove them if you so wish). Good for advanced students. 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 March 4, Saturday, 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.
