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.
Are You Telling Me…? - November 24, 2014Lesson Collection #4 - Lesson 14b
Asking for clarification is a natural element of general conversation. This lessons helps students learn and use various forms of asking for confirmation. At the same time, they will be learning a dozen new common English phrases.
At the top of each worksheet are six common English phrases (metaphors) which many students may not know. There are six corresponding answer lists, each with four possible answers at the bottom of the partner's worksheet. By listening carefully, students will be able to eventually arrive at the correct meaning of the phrase. To do that, they have to ask for confirmation and clarification including:
Do you mean...?
Are you telling me...?
You don't mean..., do you?
Are you trying to say...?
Students will also need to express phrases of possibility including:
There is even a point system built into the lesson to encourage students to guess the meaning of the idioms as quickly as possible.
This is a very practical and fun lesson, and best of all, the students will be busy, not the teacher!
There is a similar lesson. It is:
Do You Mean...? (See Lesson 14a above).

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.
Your collection of lesson worksheets is really great. It makes my teaching much easier and funnier. I work in an International House School in Ukraine. We all enjoy your lessons, especially our students. Your illustrations are just great.
