Ted-Ed. Lessons Worth Sharing

Ted-Ed. Lessons Worth Sharing

Today I'd like to introduce you to this website, highly recommendable for teachers involved in bilingual projects. Besides, it's worth the visit if you are an English teacher looking for listening comprehension exercises. Ted Ed site offers videos about topics that can be found in the curriculum of several subjects. Plus, each video features a comprehension quiz, writing prompts and the chance to create your own lesson. But that's not all, teachers who sign up can make their own lessons from any youtube video. A fantastic tool for learners and teachers, a great resource for PILC and CLIL lessons.

International Book and Copyright Day

On 23rd April, we celebrate World Book and Copyright Day. Its origins are found in Spain because Cervantes died on this date, as well as Shakespeare and other writers. Later, the UNESCO declared 23rd April as a day to promote reading and publishing. In the UK, World Book Day is celebrated in early March, so that it doesn't clash with Easter holidays and students can properly celebrate it at school with their Language and Literature teachers. Here I'm suggesting you some interesting websites where you can read and create stories online, or even download books legally. So enjoyable!

Game Time! Present Perfect and Jobs Flashcards

Game time!
Cut up the cards and put them face down. Each player has to choose one and say sentences using present perfect telling what they have done at work. The other players have to guess his job.
For example, Player A picks up a card at random.
The other players ask: “What have you done today?”
Player A answers: “I have studied a lot of lines, I have rehearsed with my colleagues.”
The rest of the players will ask: "Are you an actor?"
and Player A will say "Yes, I am".
Then, it's someone else's turn. You can draw pictures in blank cards, write different jobs' names and continue playing.
