What Makes Our Lessons Different?
Teachers Save Time
Reduce lesson planning and gain freedom in the classroom. With all students busy, the teacher can casually roam around the classroom and offer assistance wherever needed.
Students Learn by Doing
Minutes after beginning each lesson, classes often become noisy. At times, very noisy. Why? Students, in pairs or small groups, actively engage in completing the lesson task. They use English to learn English.
Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing
Oral communication is important. Listening and speaking have priority in our lessons; students need to carefully listen to each other. Reading is also important for the success of the lessons. The amount of writing required varies.
Fun for Teachers & Students
We believe students learn better when having fun. Our lessons range from silly to serious but each has a solid task-specific educational goal including grammar usage, vocabulary building and fluency improvement to name a few.
Cocktails - November 17, 2014Lesson Collection #5 - Lesson 10b
At first, students work in pairs to gather information from each other in order to acquire all of the ingredients needed to make four popular cocktails. When finished, they will have the recipes for a:
Pina Colada, Martini
Bloody Mary and Margarita.
After students have the recipes, they work together as a team of four to collect the ingredients from other students in class. They have to mill around the classroom and ask their classmates for items such as:
2 shots of Tequila
some Worcestershire sauce
2 shots of Gin, etc.
Students race against each other to be the first to collect all 20 of the ingredients they need to make their cocktails. Caution: your class will explode with excitement and, yes, lots of noise. But at least the noise will be in English!

I’d like to thank you for the wonderful worksheets; they are very useful, time-saving as well as entertaining, especially for students who don’t want
to learn English.
Feel free to quote me on this! I have found your lessons to be the most useful of all that I have found on the Net! The teacher’s guidance makes presenting the lessons a doddle and the students’ pages are fun, varied, stimulating, exciting and always of interest to my students.
I am a freelance EFL teacher and the students vary from Austrian teenagers, on school trips to London, to adults at a language centre. Your lessons are especially useful for the latter group as I often get called upon to cover a class at the last minute!
Keep the lessons coming please, Kurt - and many, many thanks!
Your customer service is excellent and I think you have a great product. I am using the lessons and I love the fact that I have ready made materials and instructions. These lessons are so great for teaching privately, in institutes and also add to my classroom themes in university.
Keep up the good work.
I just wanted to say that I think that the lessons you have on your site are great. I have found that the lessons work well in class and my students really enjoy them.
