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.
Alien Meets Earthling - January 16, 2017Paid LessonLesson Collection #3 - Lesson 4b
Students construct a very short (and sweet?) story with this lesson, and have a lot of fun reading their stories to the others in class.
To begin, students fold their worksheets so that only the first question is showing. They answer this question, fold the paper so that only the second question is showing, then they pass their worksheets to the right. All students answer the second question, then fold their papers so that only the third question is showing. They pass their papers to the right once more and students answer the third question.
The worksheets continue rotating around the class, each time with only one question showing. Eventually, students will answer 12 questions from the worksheet.
Finally, the stories are read aloud and everyone will have a good laugh about the Alien and the Earthling. Advanced students will also enjoy this activity; they just are required to write a more detailed story.

I have been teaching English in Latvia for 5 years now to such varied student groups as Music College, military and Bible College students. I came across your site about a year ago and it has been incredibly helpful in my teaching. I have found all of my students - from the highest ranking military officer to the most ordinary school-kid - enjoy your lessons. The worksheets and the ideas are fantastic! Thank you so much for making the English teacher’s work easier, more varied and much more enjoyable!!!
Your lessons are awesome!!!!
I just translate them over to Spanish and they work like a charm.
I love your material and use it often. Your material is the best on the web and a great value. I hope to see more material in the near future.
Once again thanks,
What a wonderful site you’ve got there, thanks for all the great ideas. I teach high school girls who really dislike studying, but even they manage to get some enjoyment from these lessons.
We EFL teachers need more sites like these.
I integrate your lessons into my syllabus so girls never get bored. For them, English should be entertainment and while most textbooks are short on that, your lessons are not.
Keep up the wonderful work!

Your lessons are professionally done and most of all fun!
We all find your materials more than just a fun filler even though they do liven things up.
I post each of your lessons on a teacher’s exchange board Mondays at school for the other trainers. The feedback has been nothing but praise.
Keep up the good work.
