I think that crosswords can be a great way to motivate and interest EFL students participate in classes. I guess that in all times crosswords have been so successful and encouraging. Being so simple in their nature crosswords are successful to check and enlarge vocabulary, to develop spelling.

English For Everyone

In my previous blogs I tried to share links for those who are interested in using cartoons, songs, worksheets, etc. as teaching young learners. And now in this post I would like to share a useful site for those who have teenage or adult students. This site is a great one as it involves a lot of printable teaching materials. In fact the site is for Grade School, GED and ESL. I made use of them and I may assure that your students won’t face any great difficulties or problems. http://www.englishforeveryone.org/

English during break? Writing on doors? Sure!

I try to keep my pupils English-aware in every moment. We all like happy places and feeling comfortable, and kids should enjoy the learning process, so I like keeping my classroom colorful and as bright as possible! Walls are full of posters (as are yours I suppose) grammar charts, maps of English speaking countries, pupils artwork etc.
