article about the importance of extra teaching materials   
Hi everybody, I need some help and –unfortunately- as quick as possible. I asked the English department chair ´s for academic release time (due to some health problems) offering him to elaborate teaching material as the one on this web site. He agreed under the condition, that I give him a short written justification, stating why supplemental materials are beneficial for ESl learners supported by quotes from ESL articles. I already searched the internet for information, but haven’t been very successful. Does anybody know about such articles? Your help will be much appreciated.

Male or female?   
Hi colleagues,

How will you refer to the world ( female or male/he or she) in a play where Earth/our planet is a character? Thanks

Most belief systems that anthropomorphize the earth do assign it the female gender. The one exception that I can think of is ancient Egyptian mythology, which had the earth as masculine and the sky as feminine.

I HAVE A PROJECT!! I am looking for a teacher together with his/her students.   
Hi, everyone.My project is a little bit different. Please, check this website.


Briefly, it is a game but indeed not a game. You are born with your avatars, you start to live there. You can trip the countries, you can shop, you can get education, you can teach etc. I want to make our students meet in Second Life, we will chat, speak English.It will be great fun. If you are interested, please write me soon. Thank you.

Pen pals needed for 24 8th graders   
Hi everyone! I am an English teacher in Israel. I have been doing the pen pal project for the last three years. Some of the classes I worked with really enjoyed it and I think it ´s time to do it again this year. I decided to do it only with one of the classes I am teaching- the 8th graders. I would like someone who can commit to this project with his class from now until June 20. I would like the other class to start as I still organizing everything. I want to try to sent and receive at least 4 letters. I have 24 students. I have a lot of boys who love football. Please let me know if you are interested. I don ´t want a class that does it with other countries at the same Time because then it doesn ´t work well. This is why I chose only one class to do it with. Thanks Ravit

Hi all!
Yesterday I and my students had a discussion about an idion which is ´to be on fire´. I taught it a few days ago but the problem is I wasn´t aware that it had another meaning like being very attravtive actually just like I am hot. You know it also means to be very good at something. Does it sound weird if I say it to a native speaker? Or which meaning is more common?

Thanks a lot

Elo´s  "term that people use when someone is doing great and they are unable to be stopped"
probably describes it the best.
The confusion, I think, is when people say: "She´s so hot, she´s on fire." which is actually just a play on the "she´s hot" idiom.
Saying "she´s on fire" often implies attractive these days, but that is not really correct use of the idiom.
Languages change though, so listen to the children I say.
Note: personally, I have also seen this idiom used when refering to someone being extremely enthusiastic about something.

Is it correct?
We hardly did expect the forthcoming danger.

Inverted word order for a declarative sentence is correct, but sounds literary. We might use it in speaking if telling a story, but only because it sounds literary.

Maryse is correct.

Chemist OR Pharmacist?   
Dear colleagues,
what ´s the difference between the two words - chemist (as someone working in a pharmacy, not a scientist) and pharmacist?
Are they complete synonyms?
Or perhaps there ´s a difference in their education - college and university?
Please help,

In Canada, "pharmacist" or even "druggist"(not as common but it is used)... A chemist would be the scientist.
