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.
Geometric Shapes - August 19, 2016Lesson Collection #1 - Lesson 23
In pairs, students describe the exact coordinates of nine different geometric shapes printed on their worksheets. All of the shapes are laid out on a grid that covers the background of the worksheets.
A typical description (for drawing a hexagon) might sound like this: Draw a diagonal line from 31H to 33G. From that point, draw another diagonal line to 35H. From 35H, draw a horizontal line to 35K. Draw another diagonal line from 35K to 33L. From there, draw another diagonal line to 31K. Finally, draw a horizontal line connecting 35K and 31H.
During the course of this activity, students will learn the names of common geometric shapes as well as practice vocabulary including horizontal, vertical, diagonal, midway between, inside curve, outside curve, a little above/below, a little to the right/left of and verbs including draw, connect and place.
To accurately duplicate each geometrical shape, students have to give clear instructions and partners need to listen carefully. If a shape is drawn askew, students will automatically want to know where the fault occurred. This may lead into a brief discussion which is also an important part of this interactive lesson.
This is absolutely the best site i’ve ever seen for EFL teaching materials!
Thanks so much!
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.
It’s always very stimulating to get my e-mail every Sunday morning because I know there will be one of your lessons in it. I read them every week and have tried to put them in practice. I must say they really work! Thanks a lot for the great lessons. As a teacher and teacher trainer, sometimes I run out of ideas. Your lessons are very important, not only for me but for my trainees as well.
I just want to thank you for all your hard work on the website & the many ideas & worksheets you provide for ESL teachers all over the world.
After reading the other testimonials, I really agree with them! I have taught ESL for 20+ years and I am always looking for exciting materials for my adult students. Your worksheets have hit the jackpot! They have captured the attention of my adult students. Observing them last night with the adjective synonyms, they were staying past the dismissal time and working to explore and complete the worksheet. Thank you, Thank you.
