But I’ve come to terms with myself and admitted that no matter how long I’ve been in the business , it is always going to feel like having a bull ( past the butterfly feeling) in my stomach. So again, I’m hunting books ,posts, and the Internet for ideas to use on the first day to get to know my students and to give them the first chance to use the language. By the way, these are the ones I used last year if you want to have a look ♥Interviewing your partner: Tell students they are going to interview four or five people they don’t know in the class. ♥Get to Know you Bingo: this one requires a bit of preparation but it’s not like you are already loaded with exams , is it?

Language teachers can and should use songs as part of their classroom teaching repertoire. Songs contain authentic language, are easily obtainable, provide vocabulary, grammar and cultural aspects and are fun for the students. They can provide valuable speaking, listening and language practice in and out of the classroom. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
