Do native speakers use the word "touristic"?   
I īm wondering if it is correct to introduce to students the word "touristic" as a word which is commonly used by native speakers or a word which is considered as EuroEnglish.

"Touristic" is certainly not used in American English to my knowledge. "Touristy," perhaps, but I īve never heard "touristic" before.

Thanks a lot.

Present Perfect vs. Simple Past   
Hi all,
I hope you īre having a wonderful week. I have a problem. I īm teching a group of about 18 students from ages 8 to about 10. I īm teaching the present PERFECT vs. the simple past. Students know how to use each seperately they know the structure and everything, but it seems that I can īt seem to make them understand when they should use one tense or the other.  Do any of you have any ideas on how I can aproach this topic?

PS. Sorry about the mistake. I meant present perfect not continuous. Embarrassed

I don īt know what level are the learners in Argentina, but a very nice active and fun game i use here is Canada is the following: WIN - LOSE - DRAW
You prepare a list of 10 objects on a sheet of paper (write them big). It can be linked to a theme or not, but make sure your students know the words. You split your group in teams of 4-5 members. Each team sends you a representative with a marker. You show the first word the the representative. They then run back to their group and draw the word on a poster. The person that identifies the word takes the marker and comes back to you. They tell you the word they found. You then reveal the second word and they go back to their team and draw the second word and so on until all the words have passed. A nice and fun competitive game that anyone whatever the age loves. After, you can ask a person to bring the poster in front of the class and you make fun of the drawing skills of everyone ;)
