ESL Kids Classroom Games & Activities Action Race: This is a fun game using actions.

Businessenglishpod: Telephoning Howtos, intermediate Welcome back to Business English Pod for today’s lesson on complaining and getting results over the phone. Few people actually like to complain, but sometimes you just have to.

Present perfect tense – finished versus up to now time There have been many different attempts to explain the difference between the past simple and present perfect tenses to learners of English. I have tried to do this for example in my posts on present perfect basics, Present perfect tense vs Past simple or present perfect infographics.

I think, it is not a bad way to distinguish between the past simple and present perfect tenses.

ESL Games for the Classroom Alphabet Shout Out Randomly choose an alphabet flashcard and award a point to the first student who shouts out a word beginning with that letter. Alphabet Writing Relay Divide and line up the students into two teams. Divide the board into two halves and have one student from each team run to the board, write 'A', then run to the back of the line. The next student writes 'B', etc. The first team to finish wins. Alphabet Erase relay As 'Alphabet Writing Relay', but this time, write the alphabet on each half of the board and have each team race to erase the letters in order.

Last Night by The Vamps This is a great song to review past verb tenses with your students. I have used a ‘wordle’ containing verbs only and pictures from the music video for prediction, followed by inserting these verbs in to a gap fill. Students then identify the past tense followed by a discussion about why they are using each specific tense.
Teaching With Podcasts Home › Professional Development › Strategy Guides Strategy Guide Podcasts are serial recordings, posted regularly online. Robert Rozema describes a podcast as "a blog in audio form" (31). Basically, producing podcasts is the technology-based equivalent of oral storytelling. Much as oral stories and news have been shared with listeners by medieval bards, Native American storytellers, and others, podcasters share news and stories with their listeners, who download the files online.
