Grammar mind maps About designer lessons George Chilton is an English teacher and writer based in Barcelona, Spain. He came to the city in 2008 with a plan to stay for 6 months. Spanish time is a little different to the rest of the world. He’s sharing some of the ESL lessons he uses in this blog. Neil McMillan is an English Teacher and Teacher-Trainer also based in Barcelona. We think ESL lessons should be… Fun and inspiring and useful and relevant and spontaneous and intelligent and unplugged and sometimes surprising. Then again… For the most part, the “designer lessons” aim to elicit natural language in order to create a dialogic relationship between the teacher and the learner. We’re not saying that if you use these lessons your students are gonna leave the class sounding like something from Emmerdale, but – with a bit of luck – they’re going to have had something resembling a real-life conversation. So these lessons… Aim to engage and promote conversation in a semi-controlled way. Like this: Like Loading...
