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.
Famous People - February 22, 2015Lesson Collection #5 - Lesson 17b
A fun (and quiet) activity for students to practice Alphabet Sign Language. Sometimes, non-verbal communication can be as effective if not more effective in encouraging students to pay close attention to each other in terms of grammar, spelling and thinking.
This is a great review lesson after students have finished the sign language lesson Flag Speak.
With this worksheet, students ask each other questions using Alphabet Sign Language. They also give the answers (in case they are not known) and assist with the spelling of the names of eight famous people.
This is also an amazingly simple yet effective way to practice spelling, the use of articles, prepositions, plural nouns and any number of other elements of the English language. When students spell out words with their hands, they reinforce their learning physically as well.
For a similar style lesson using "Sign Language," see:
Sign Language (See Lesson 17a above).
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!
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,
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.
Helen Svetlichnaya - EFL Teacher
The result of your workseets in the classroom is amazing. Students go crazy about this new kind of practice material, which is completely different from what they can find in Textbooks.
On the other hand, all worksheets foster speaking and interactions, which are so difficult to achive. I hope this site will keep on working hard to provide us, not so imaginative teachers, with ready-made quality material for use in the classroom.
