The Landlady

The Landlady
About this BritLit kit Billy Weaver, a young man visiting the City of Bath for the first time, is looking for accommodation. He is inexplicably drawn to a house where the landlady seems to be expecting him. The house and the landlady seem friendly and welcoming, and he looks forward to staying there. Signing the guest book, two names disturb him. Where has he heard them before? Why aren't there any other guests? The themes drawn from this story include poisoning, embalming and taxidermy as well as a look at witches. The kit, originally written in 2003, was updated in 2007 and 2013. The materials in this BritLit Kit are available to download in the Attachments box below. You can also listen to the audio included in the attachments below. How to use this BritLit kit The material is divided into three sections: Pre-reading, After reading, and Word Work.

Fantastic Mr Fox - Roald Dahl Three horrid farmers - Boggis, Bunce and Bean - hate cunning Mr Fox, who outwits them at every turn. But poor Mr Fox and his friends don't realise how determined the farmers are to get them... Roald Dahl lived with his family in Great Missenden, a village in Buckinghamshire, UK. Their house was surrounded by fields and woods. As a passionate lover of the countryside, there was one particular tree - known locally as "the witches tree" - that sat on the lane near the Dahl home and came to inspire one of Roald's own favourite stories: Fantastic Mr Fox.

Träna lässtrategier med kortfilmer på engelska Jag städade bland filmerna hemma och hittade en DVD med kortfilmer. Jag läste på baksidan och tänkte att dessa måste ju vara bra att använda som utgångspunkt för att träna lässtrategier. Filmerna är korta nog att hålla intresset uppe och det ges många ledtrådar att tolka budskap och göra kopplingar till sig själv, andra filmer eller böcker och världen. Jag visar här hur jag gick vidare i min tanke och fick ett uppslag att undervisa utifrån. 656 FREE Movie Worksheets for Your ESL Classroom About Our Movie + Video + Cartoons Worksheets Let’s face it: Even the most enthusiastic ESL class sometimes goes through dull periods. No matter how much you switch up the activities and topics, there’s only so much English that your students can absorb at any one time. Still, that limit is sometimes a lot higher than your students believe it is - and the genuine exhaustion caused by a challenging topic, is very different from boredom that comes from too much repetition. When your students are just plain bored of board work, that’s when it’s time to break out one of your “emergency” activities - the ones you know will raise your class’s mood.
