Animal Nicknames This works best with intermediate to advanced kids (not so much english for the advanced ones) Before class make up a sheet of paper with all of the students names on it with a blank line next to each name. Include your own name also. Hand these out to the students in class. Then tell them to look carefully at each of their other students.

Kids Songs and Nursery Rhymes with videos, free flashcards, and activity ideas! The Super Simple Songs CD 1 and 2 are superb! I love them and I have used them with my students in Brazil. Their ages range from 3 to 6 year old. They really enjoy them and they have had a lot of fun acting out while they are singing. Thanks very much for such creativity! Private Lessons & How To Keep Them When I was teaching during term time for a large well-known language school in the south of Spain, like most teachers I had a lot of classes and got to know my adult students particularly well, which meant getting invited out for social gatherings and asked for advice when it came to using English professionally. I was always happy to oblige, even went out of my way to help students and used this as a way of networking and expanding my potential customer base. Why? Private lessons During term-time you’ll probably be too busy to even think about taking on private classes but during the summer holidays it can be a long expensive time for an unemployed teacher.

ESL Lounge: Songs for English Teaching. Free song lyrics. using songs in the esl classroom It's great to use songs in the class, if only to do something a little different. But beyond using them solely to give your students some 'light relief', there are many other ways songs can be used in ESL classrooms to consolidate what students have already learnt. Happy and you Know it - refresher I find that one of the most terrifying things is when you are completely done with the lesson and you still have 10 minutes to go, and reviewing the lesson would go over about as well as giving an inspirational talk on how marching on the Trail of Tears was great for the Native Americans quads, calves, and burning unwanted pounds... it wouldn't go well. So what I've found is, or remembered is the Happy and you Know it song... and it works great on young kids and self-conscious teen agers.You remember: If you happy and you know it clap your hands....blah blah. Well change it around.

Songs For Children - help children learn English. We started to have so many songs that were suitable for younger learners that we made this separate section only for those songs. Some of these songs are suitable for the very youngest of learners, i.e. three or four years of age. And the suitability of the songs goes up to early teens. If you have any ideas for improvement to this part of the site or to send in song-based lesson plans, don't hesitate to contact us.

How to Create an ESL Reading Lesson Plan The Parts of a Reading Lesson Reading and listening should be treated somewhat differently from speaking and writing when planning an ESL lesson. This is because they are receptive language skills while speaking and writing are productive language skills.The goal of all lesson plans should be for the students to produce the language, of course, but different skills focuses require a slightly different path, if you will. While productive lessons typically follow the PPP format, receptive lessons have a language focus and pre-, post-, and during reading activities, also called PDP (pre-, during, post-) format. Lead In As with a PPP lesson, you will want to begin the class by activating the students' background knowledge (what they already know about a topic or concept) and reduce their affective barriers (basically, make them feel comfortable using English.)
