English is all around! British Life and Culture in the UK The English Blog British Life and Culture in the UK - Woodlands Junior School Interactive: European Stereotypes As part of the Europa project, newspapers from six European countries (Britain, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, and Italy) were asked to stereotype each other, and then asked cultural commentators in each country to assess how accurate they are. You can read the resulting articles on The Guardian website. Here's an extract from the one about the British: The stereotype is itself a stereotype.

Myplaceforenglish MISSION LANGUAGE LAB Talk2Me English : The Present Simple 1 - Back To Basics I am very proud to announce that this post has been awarded the 'Teaching English Blog Award for Innovative Teaching Ideas' by the British Council.I would like to take this opportunity to thank Teaching English for their support and thank everyone who voted :-) This post is the first of a series of three, on the topic of the Present Simple tense. It contains a printable infographic covering the basics of the Present Simple and three printable worksheets. Getting back to basics: If you've been following my blog, you'll know that I've been on a journey of discovery, concerning using technology to create materials and using technology to teach and study. The minute the lights went out, the atmosphere changed in the classroom and I felt the tension rise. I have been working with the group on the topic of places in a town and shops. My next post on the topic of the Present Simple tense will look at the verb 'BE'.

Leave a Reply Off to the beach this summer? Then you’ll need some beach vocabulary The school holidays have started here in the UK and this weekend will see many families fly off to sunnier countries to catch some of those rays and to luxuriate in warm sea waters. Having just returned from an idyllic two weeks in Barbados with its white sandy beaches and turquoise blue waters, I can totally empathise with the excitement that will be felt across households as families pack their suitcases remembering to take with them their swimsuits – trunks for boys and men; bikinis, tankinis, one-piece swimsuits for girls and women; their beach towels; shorts;T-shirts; light summer dresses; sparkly sandals; flip flops; sunglasses (or shades) and many more items. Of course, we mustn’t forget to take our suntan or sunscreen lotions with us. Years ago, people used to go on a beach holiday and not bother with sun protection. So armed with sun protection, swimsuits, beach towels and all the right clothes for a beach holiday, what are you going to do? A beach library – my idea of heaven.
Experimenting with English (Part 2) – Activities for learners to do outside the classroom [26 and counting!] In my blog post Experimenting with English: scaffolding learner autonomy, I discussed how I approached helping my learners to use English outside the classroom, drawing on learner autonomy theory and methodology (e.g. Benson, 2011; Oxford, 2003; Smith 2003). Central to that project, alongside the very important element of discussion, was a handout I created for my learners. Here is a screenshot of a sample page, taken from the listening section: Sample page from my Experimenting with English activities handout, listening section. As you can see, the handout consists of a series of activities for learners to try, with space for them to record when they tried it and what they thought of it. In my experience, as I mentioned in the Experimenting with English blog post, simply giving the learners this handout is insufficient. Of course, my learners are busy people and the time they have for out-of-class study is limited. Here are the handouts: This one is for learners who use Edmodo Like this:
