I’m looking for some inspiration from you all. I have this little beauty below which I would like to use for a business English workshop on teamwork and leadership but I was thinking a normal cloze exercise would be a tad too boring. Does anybody have any ideas?
There was once a team of four individuals called respectively: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.
There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.
Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.
Somebody got angry about this, because it was Everybody’s job.
Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realised that Everybody wouldn’t do it.
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
I īd like to help my students have real communication in English with other students from other countries.
My intention is for them to find out similarities and differences between educational systems, schools, ways of learning, studying, and especially how people from different countries understand the importance of learning English and the importance of education as a whole.
This is part of some research I īm doing for my final paper on my post graduation course.
I intend to work with 13-year-old(ish) students, and their level of English is elementary.
Would anyone be willing to help me?
The more different nationalities join me, the more profitable the project will be.
I īm trying to make the training program in the company I work at more interactive and I am looking for some good suggestions for my boss. My job entails more than just English training, among other things, I also make product training videos.
I īve done some shopping around and stumbled on iSpring Suite, which seems to meet a lot of our requirements. I tried the free trial and it now has my attention.
Does anyone here have experience with iSpring or suggestions for similar software. I īm not looking for an LMS (yet), I am looking for creating interactive training products that we can use with our current infrastruture (e.g. convertible to html).
OBTW: I am not trying to promote iSpring or any other platform, I am on a fact finding mission and am open to most any suggestions. So please don īt mark this as spam :)
I was real pleased with it. It was very intuitive and seeemd to naturally blend into my PowerPoint work. One big showstopper is the price (single license will cost you around 700 euros for the suite). I would consider buying just the quiz maker (the free version doesn īt offer html or some formating options that I īd need for branding).
I really liked the quiz maker, it īs easy to use and saves LOTS of time in comparriosn to doing it all with PPt. The suite also lets you sub-order slides (kind of like an outline) which I found helpful as well. Unfortunately I didn īt have time to try a lot of the other features.
The learnign curve was almost zero--the free tutorial videos are short, sweet and effective.
I am back! After a long time of being absent, and after some of life īs harsh up and downs, I realised that I missed creating and sharing resources with other teachers and friends. I have logged onto the site a few times but just to see how things were and if the site was still doing strong. which it is!
Now, I feel I need to get my creative juices flowing again, and thought that I īd simply ask - what do you need?? What have you had trouble finding or wish there was more of???
ESLPrintables has so many great resources, but there are always tiny niches, sectors or topics that don īt really have that many resources or worksheets and I īd like to help add to those ones, if possible.
I visited eslprintables member Lesley Misano recently in Italy and we had a great time. We had a trip out, lunch at Lesley īs and tea in her wonderful garden. She also showed me her best teaching prop, which was a huge home-made timeline. She demonstrated how she goes about teaching compound tenses.
This is mine! With his help, I teach: 1.Parts of the body. 2. Prepositions īPut him on the table/under the desk ī etc... 3. Can - can he fly/jump/sing etc... 4. Patterns... If I can use him, I do!
As you can see, at the moment, I īve put him out to grass, but I do hope this magnificent beast will be gracing a classroom very soon in the future.
I think it would be great to have the possibility to mark individual posts as spam, not just the whole topic... In this case, Lynne, please do not have us mark you topic as spam, I have found the info in your op quite useful and I īm sure there might be others who can benefit from it and it would be a pity to lose the post because of a single spam post.
Today I īve had to stand in for a colleague of mine who was on a sick leave. One of his students showed me a composition marked by my workmate and to my surprise he crossed the following student īs sentence and wrote this instead: "I īm excited about going on holiday." My colleague crossed it out and wrote "excited to go on holiday." instead. I īm a bit flabbergasted as I īve always taught my students that "excited" is always followed by the preposition "about". Could anyone shed some light on this? Is my colleague īs correction correct? If so, in which contexts? Thanks.
I was wondering if the members here could help me and other teachers by recommending sites in your countries who advertise for English teachers? Sites like Ajarn.com in Thailand.
Thanx in advance Tony.
