To kick-start the revival I'm going to post the daily plan I wrote a while ago for a course I taught to absolute beginners without using a course book. I'll update regularly (twice or three times a week), each update with a lesson plan follwoing a cronological order. Starting with day one.

Revival

Hello, everyone. Is anybody still watching this comm? I just realised that my last post was three years ago almost to the date. Sorry. I haven't had internet at home since my last update and my time at work is usually spent in so much rush I rarely have time to think about updating this comm. I've been putting it away in order to do different things since I do more than just teach, eat and sleep in my life, regardless of what my students think.

I plan on reviving this community again and I'd like to have all the help I can get to advertise it so we can get more people interested in what I post and hopefully spread the word more. This way it's also more likely I'll get a kick in my butt if I happen to let this comm slip into oblivion again.

I plan on posting more than just lessons plans and worksheets here. I'd like to share my experiences and try to offer some tips and open free discussions on some topics. I would like to hear the voice of other teachers and read your thoughts on what you would be interested in seeing here. Consider this post an open space to do that.

Present Perfect Questions for Conversation Classes

Hi!

It's been some time. Again. Time is really thin to do everything I want, but I managed to arrange some to leave a questionnaire I use with my students when I introduce Present Perfect. You can either print them and use it as worksheet, or use as a base for a conversation class, which I prefer. It also involves the use of superlatives.

Group Work - Beginner Level

I've been away for some time. Sorry, a lot of work. Lately, I've been developing a series of group works for my beginner students so they can talk more. So far it's been a success. They cover each unit of the course book in the school I work, starting from zero English knowledge to intermediate level.

The lesson from today is destined to students that have just started learning English. It basically covers only names and nicknames. It is programmed for a 90 minute class, but it varies according to group.

Note: This lesson plan can be easily adapted to work with countries and nationalities.
