Teenagers and UK culture Why bring UK culture to the teen classroom? We can introduce UK culture into the English classroom to help our students improve their English and at the same time learn about values and ways of doing things which may be different to theirs. Learning about life and culture in the UK can be very motivating as it brings the language alive for learners and creates a link between language and real life. See if you agree with these comments from teachers on teaching UK culture to their teenage learners:

Totally free printable letters to teach your kiddo the ABCs: Letters activities: B We’ve all heard of that magical child who comes out of the womb reading, but the reality is that reading readiness starts at a young age. Simply exposing your child to letters as part of a fun coloring activity can help them to learn some of the building blocks they’ll need to read. Educators remind us time and again that parents are their child’s first teacher. While this doesn’t mean you have to devote hours to teaching and coaching your little guy or gal, every bit helps. Giving kids the opportunity to practice recognizing and sounding out letters while coloring them in can make them feel more comfortable as they learn to read in school.

The Seven Best Silent Short Films for Language Teaching - Kieran Donaghy As many short films are artistic, they have limited appeal in the commercial marketplace and are funded from diverse sources. To make them easier to sell worldwide, they often contain little or no dialogue, which makes comprehension much easier. As a result, they offer intensely ‘filmic’ experiences, using images and movement, sequence and duration, sound and music to tell their stories. These silent films are perfect for the language classroom as they can be used with any level – the teacher just needs to adapt the difficulty of the task to match the level of the students.
