Love is Blind - level 2 Hi Lang I’m writing in English because I know we both need to practise. Thanks for your last email. I’m sorry I didn’t write back sooner. I miss Shanghai and I miss playing in the band with you. I’ve got to stop now. Please write back soon. Deshi PS: I think I’m in love! Deshi turned off the computer and opened his English book. Deshi couldn’t sleep that night and he got up late the next morning. He had a terrible day at school. Later that evening, Deshi was in his room, practising his guitar with the headphones on. Deshi went down to the street feeling really unhappy. Without thinking, he picked it up.
Love is Blind - level 1 Hi Lang I’m writing in English to practise. I’m sorry I didn’t answer your email. I miss Shanghai and I miss playing in the band with you. Hey, I’ve got to stop. Please write back soon. Deshi PS: I think I’m in love! Deshi turned off the computer and opened his English book, but it was difficult to concentrate on irregular verbs. Deshi couldn’t sleep that night and he was late for school the next morning. School didn’t go well that day. Deshi thought about how unhappy he was as he went down the stairs. Brendan Dunne 3 activities for Valentine's day | Online TEFL Training Whoops! You’ve completely forgotten that Valentine’s Day is round the corner and you haven’t planned anything with a romantic theme for your classes. Don’t panic – Here are 3 last-minute love lessons / activities for you to try which require very little preparation. TIP: Not all learners feel comfortable talking about their private lives and relationships. In order not to invade their privacy, you might want to ask them to create roles based on pictures. Briefly introduce the concept of ‘speed dating’. Great for: 2nd conditionals “If you were to go out with me, you’d have the night of your life.” Create a simple handout on an A4 sheet of paper. Who was the man? Who was the woman? Where were they were they met? What was he doing when they met? What did they say to each other? What did they think of each other? What did they do after they met? What happened in the end Great for: Practising narrative tenses. Give each student a portrait photo. What should people do to find a partner?

Valentine by Carol Ann Duffy – a lesson It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow, and although I don’t normally do anything for it, I thought that this year I would take the opportunity to share one of my favourite poems with my students. Here’s the plan in case you want to do it too. Ask your students what day it is, and whether anything special happens on this day in their country. What do they know about Valentine’s Day in the UK? What kind of gifts do people normally give for Valentine’s Day? Brainstorm them on the board. Give each group the word cloud. Show them an onion. Ask the students to close their eyes and put their heads on the desk (but try not to fall asleep!). Ask them to discuss how similar the poem was to their ideas. You can then do some pronunciation/speaking work. They talk about why you pause in those places – it’s because of line/stanza breaks, and also phrases within the lines. They can chose whether to read Valentine, or an anti-Valentine poem. Happy Valentine’s Day! Like this: Like Loading... Related Reading speed

Valentine | Search Results My latest New York Times post for English Language Learners is on Valentine’s Day and idioms. It includes a student interactive and teaching ideas. And here’s a “video bingo” activity that didn’t get included because of space limitations, but I thought readers would find it useful so I’m sharing it here. It’s in four “steps”: 1. Tell students they are going to play a game. 2. 3. 4. This kind of video bingo can be used with any kind of video! You can see all my previous New York Times posts here.
