Making the Most Out of Movies in the Classroom Most administrators will tell you they hate when teachers show movies in the classroom. For the most part, I agree with them. However, as long as teachers are utilizing them correctly, movies and videos can play a valuable role in the education process and can be an important aspect of a teacher’s strategy in providing lesson material to students. Recently, I decided to show a video in my geography classes that I thought did a great job of reinforcing a point that I was trying to make in class.

Using Silent Video in the EFL Classroom This video is the BOMB! It is captivating, absorbing, a story par excellence but also SILENT! Yes, silent films are great for getting students to produce language — and after all is said and done, that most often is the hardest thing to do, getting the students speaking and learning language by just communicating.

First Lessons in Writing for Beginners By Kenneth Beare Beginning level writing classes are challenging to teach because students have such a large number of challenges to deal with at the very beginning. For a beginning level student the instructions: Write a paragraph about your family, Write three sentences describing your best friend, etc. can be daunting to say the very least. Rather than beginning your writing class off with such an insurmountable task (from the eyes of the beginner), begin with some very concrete tasks leading up to those first few sentences, or a short paragraph. Here are some of the most important first steps in writing that I find help beginning level students gain confidence in writing skills. Start Small with the Nuts and Bolts

1,027 FREE Movie Worksheets for Your ESL Classroom 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. You’ve probably got some go-to activities of your own - but it never hurts to add some new ones to your arsenal.

Despicable Me Fun Facts Rumor has it that someone has stolen the Great pyramids in Egypt, committing the crime of the century. Who breaks the news to Gru and influences him to steal the moon? Answer: Dr. Nefario What’s on your mind? This EFL lesson is designed around a short film by Shaun Higton and the theme of Facebook.
