  • Online Game: The Curfew

    I spotted a colleague (Thanks Neil!) using this with a class the other day and it looked brilliant and so investigated – it is really impressive work! Turns out Neil spotted this on Larry Ferlazzo’s site. The Curfew game is aimed at young adults / older teenagers and is set in a dystopian Britain, some 16 years in our future.  It aims to raise ...

  • Sheltering Change, more ideas for your lessons

    I've always loved this song (written by Jagger/Richards, and released on the Stones' Let It Bleed album towards the end of 1969), and, as you probably already know, I'm very fond of Playing for Change, too. They are good enough reasons for me to link it here in this blog.But how can we use it in our lessons, you might ask. Well, think about it and ...

  • Exam Classes: Gapless

    Another really simple idea for all those use of english papers….  just remove the gaps. For exam classes this works with the following areas: FCE & CAE: Use of English Part One – multiple choice cloze Use of English Part Two – open cloze Use of English Part Three – word formation CPE: Reading Part One: multiple choice cloze Use of ...

  • Zip Zap Boing (I think?)

    I blame that Simon Thomas over at efl-resource.  It’s all his fault.  And I’m still not sure whether it’s “zip zap zop” or “zig zag zog” or something else entirely! I’ve inherited a class, which Simon once taught back in the misty dawn of time, of 12-year-old pre-intermediate students.  When I walked in the classroom the other day, they were all ...

  • Multiple Choice Cloze

    A relatively simple way of dealing with multiple choice cloze tasks in the classroom: Take one multiple choice cloze task, possibly one like this FCE style task found via a google image search, or just one from your coursebook. Before the class, you’ll need to type out the multiple choice possible answers onto A4, print a single copy and then ...

  • Photos + Mind Map = Ideas on a Silver Platter

    A few weeks ago, I suggested some ideas for a lesson based on a close-up image - if you've missed it, I suggest you read that first. Click here to read it.I snapped this shot today, and I thought I'd share some more ideas with you all. Between this and the previous article, I think you'll get an idea how you can start your students speaking on any ...

  • Habitat for Humanity: Lesson Plans

    I’ll be honest, I don’t really know much about Habitat for Humanity.  I’m mentioning them here because they posted a comment under one of the blog posts and I just went and took a quick look at their site. They have quite a wealth of lessons (detailed plans, learning outcomes, materials etc), categorised by age ranges.  The bad news is that these ...

  • The 8.5 billion dollar verb?

    An interesting post by Deborah Capras on the Business Spotlight blog relating to Microsoft’s recent billion dollar purchase of Skype.  She raises the question: Doesn’t $8.5 billion seem a lot of money for a verb I use almost every day for free? Which is a really good question and got me thinking….   How much are words ...

  • Online Teaching Resource: Thinkmap Visual Thesaurus

    The visual thesaurus was pointed out to me some time ago as a great alternative to the standard online dictionary search, and also as a great way to help learners broaden their vocabulary, particularly with higher level students who have a tendency to rely on a more limited than necessary lexical resource. But….  I’ve tended not to use it because ...
