A better choice - he s not or rather he isn t   
Good day, dear colleagues! 
Summertime in my place of living gives me quite a lot of free time to reflect on language use :)
So, I wonder what seems to be the norm or, to put it more right, a better use in English at present - "he s not / she s not / we re not etc" or "he isn t / she isn t / we aren t...". The question may appear a bit senseless, but I m asking it as in a grammar book I m reading there s only one option presented. So I tend to think that the other is falling or has fallen into disuse. What would you say?
Thank you!

A sense of...   
Hi all,
I know there are some phrases with  "a sense of" such as a sense of humour, a sense of responsibility, or a sense of freedom. I want to know more phrases like these . Please give me a list of "a sense of..." and their meanings if possible. I will be grateful if you guys take time telling me (I tried to search on google, but there are just a few that I have already known)
A sense of...???

Thank you for having taken part!
I had much fun reading all your creative captions. As a matter of fact, choosing the winner was not an easy task, at all.
However, maryse peyé´s caption touched me, somehow.
So, over to you maryse peyé. You´re the winner!

I know this is a long shot, but I m going to try. 
I ve been scheduled for more than my share of beginner classes this week -- and I have another group class of low to mid beginners tonight. I m about ready to lay in the floor and cry.
I have class in 5 hours.  Does anybody have any kind of go-to suggestion for some game or ANYTHING?  My bag of tricks is empty. I m scouring ESLP looking for stuff, but I have other classes to prep, and I could really use a little help.
Anything anybody wants to throw in my direction will be gladly accepted.
Cheers --

I know this is too late for yesterday s classes, but you could try Super Simple songs, such as "Yes, I can," or a rhyme, such as "Five Little Monkeys" or "Who Took the Cookie." Even older students remember songs and rhymes more than anything else at the end of the year, and they help with pronunciation (the rhythm of English).

ideas to teach object pronouns   
Hello everyone!!!!
I have to teach object pronouns to 15 year-old students. Since it is my first time teaching at secondary school, and, unfortunately, I have never taught this topic, I need the help of some friendly colleague for ideas to present it.
Thank you so much, blessings.
