Let ┤s start an acquaintance for the New Year   
So, this is undoubtedly  a wonderful site.
We see the nicknames of each other - dedicated teachers.
But do we know each other?
The aim of this topic is to enable each of you to introduce yourselves, members of this tiny community, so that we do not get lost wandering along the forums and the Net.
I will start with myself, if I may.
I am Giorgi,(pronounced the way it ┤s written, not Jorji :)
I am male / 33 years old.
I live in Georgia (not the US state, a tiny piece of land in between Asia and Europe)
I am a professional dancer, and an occasional English teacher.
Love creativity and dancing.
My ambition for the New Year is to be able to dance again, after some issues I had recently.
My wishes for you for the coming New Year is that all your desires come true, even the most unreal ones, because we all  deserve to be given a chance.
Have a  nice end of the year!

Saudi Arabia

in - on - at   
Can you tell me what the correct preposition is in this sentence:
I was walking ....................... the street ?
I would say : in.
What do you think?
In addition, are these sentences correct:
 - answer the questions as listening to the audio.
make sentneces using the relative clauses  correctly.

If you have to choose from on / in /at then in is the best UK English, US English users may have a different answer.
I  prefer:
I was walking along the street.
I was walking down / up the street.
She fell over in the street.
The accident happened in the main street.
The children were playing in the street. (dangerous if there is traffic) 

Answer the questions while listening to the audio.
Answer the questions as you listen to the audio.
Make sentences using these relative clauses correctly. (You supply the clauses to be used)
Write sentences which include a relative clause. (Student must create the whole sentence)

As I saw that you teach young learenrs I recommend the following:
Very young learners by Vanessa Reilly and Sheila Ward (Oxford)
Young learners by Sarah Philips (Oxford)
Teaching children English (Cambridge)
There are many titles on Oxford and Cambridge books for teachers. You may browse amazon and find more titles. 
Good luck!
Merry Christmas!

You can still change that. Go to the contribution and edit it. It means you actually upload a new version of it, but it isn ┤t complicated.

How to teach the meaning of the word "left"   
 How to teach the word "left":
Hold up your hands and stick out thumbs and index fingers as you say:
Which is my left? Which is my right?
Sometimes it’s hard to tell.
But when I stick my thumbs out straight,
My left will make an “L.”
