Introduction to English-speaking Countries (Lesson Outlines) Foreign teachers at Chinese universities are sometimes asked to teach a course with a name such as "A General Survey of English-speaking Countries", or "An Introduction to English-speaking Countries", or similar. I taught this course for a semester in 2003, and found the lesson preparation quite overwhelming. This was especially the case since I was given very little guidance and no clear objectives. In the hope that it might be of some assistance to other teachers who find themselves in a similar situation, I have collected together some notes on how I ran the course, and the Microsoft Powerpoint presentations which I used during the lectures. Of course, I do not expect that any teacher would follow these notes to the letter, since their own lessons will naturally be influenced by their individual expertise and their ideas about teaching. I would like to make it clear that this is not an ideal teaching plan, and if I taught the course again I would certainly make some alterations.
St. Patrick's Day - Mia Smith Som språklärare utgår jag gärna från högtider i olika engelskspråkiga länder. Eleverna stöter ofta på dessa i filmer och tv-serier, och att ge dem ordentlig förförståelse är ett bra sätt att koppla ihop skolengelskan med fritidsengelskan, eller den extramurala engelskan som den också kallas. Ett av mina favoritländer är Irland, och då är St. Patrick’s Day en tacksam utgångspunkt. Jag brukar ibland ta med mig min egen tin whistle och spela en jig för eleverna, men om ni inte själva spelar tin whistle kan ni ta er an ämnet på andra sätt. Som introduktion har jag skapat en presentation i prezi kring ämnet, lagom till St. I presentationen har jag lagt in två korta filmklipp. Som en enkel avslutning har jag lånat en färdig Kahoot.

Access VG1: Extra text: English in Jamaica The story of how English came to Jamaica is closely connected to one of the most shameful chapters in the history of the British Empire: the slave trade. The British conquered Jamaica from Spain in 1692 and the island soon became a producer of sugar. Harvesting sugar cane requires a lot of manpower, more than the British could supply themselves. The local population was no use – they had already been wiped out. The solution was found over the ocean in West Africa. The slaves were taken from different areas and spoke different languages. Today Standard English is the official language of the island and in most formal settings – in government administration and schools, for example – while Jamaican English is used in the home and on the street.
