Let s help our students REALLY COMMUNICATE in English   
Dear Teachers, I have some good students of various levels. They really want to practice their English, but because there is no opportunity to speak English in my country, they re losing motivation to learn more! I am looking for teachers to share students, giving them some opportunity to really communicate in English! That would be really useful for them all! Looking forward to your enthusiastic Students! my skype is aydin.pourhassan, join me here or there!

It has been reported because you broke the rule about 100% English. Your ws will be removed, but you can correct the Korean parts and upload it again.

How to teach vocabulary and make student not translate everything?   
Dear fellow teachers,

after a looong year free of teaching, I m finally back :). And already, I m in need of your precious advice! 

I have to prepare somebody for the TOEFL, since he wants to study either in Ireland or the US. However, his level is extremely low. He doesn t understand any of the texts (his vocabulary-knowledge is basically non-existent), grammar, listening .. a lot of work. Well those things I know how to deal with (I hope), but I don t really know about the vocabulary part. How should I prepare him in order to learn a lot of vocab? I got a book for the TOEFL vocabulary already, but I feel that this is not enough.

And another problem is, when trying to say or write something, he always tries to translate everything word by word. For example yesterday he was supposed to write a sentence and he wrote it down in French first and then searched for the words in his head word-by-word. 

Do you have any advice on how to do with him? It s the first time after years that I prepare for the TOEFL and the first time at all to prepare somebody with this level, so I m a little bit lost.
I teach him 5 hours per week one on one.

I would really appreciate any advice :)
Thanks so much in advance

Have a great weekend!

Good evening, everybody   
Could gladiators and their food catch 17-year-old students attention? I m having my first lesson with this group on Wednesday. The school is in a rural area and topics such as agriculture, farming, industry and sustainablility are included in the curriculum. I ll be teaching in that school for a month. 
Do you think this text would be appropriate for a first lesson?
Any other suggestion?
Thank you!

The article is interesting and gives some surprising facts about the gladiators diet. Your students will surely enjoy it! 
It s a great text for a reading comprehension worksheet. 
Good luck!

Can I generalize the rule by saying that compound subjects joined by and and preceded by the verb take a singular verb, like "There s a book and a pen on the table"?

 Hi, everyone.!!

  I am an English teacher in Spain. I teach secondary students aged 16 and 17 years old. 
I am looking for penfriends in one of those countries, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Finland or Denmark who are really interested in this as well.

If any teacher is really looking for penfriends from Spain, would be great.

I leave you my email to write to me currobur@hotmail.com

A big hug from Spain.
