It can be used with students with an A2+ level of English. Writing is becoming an increasingly important skill in today’s world. We can help our students to become better readers by developing the subskills they need to prepare for the text, decode it and interpret it. Listening can be tricky for our learners, especially if there aren’t any visual clues to help with the meaning or if there are several speakers, background noises or different accents to contend with. Progress tests, end-of-term exams, end-of-year exams and official exams to name a few. As online video-sharing sites have developed, a wealth of short clips on a variety of topics have become available for classroom use. What are young British people like these days?

Banned Book Club: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian | Bookmans Entertainment Exchange Because Sherman Alexie writes about sexual awareness and awakening in The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, one could understand why parents, librarians, school administrators and even some students deem the book as inappropriate. To suggest the book for a more mature audience might seem reasonable enough. The reality is that the main character, Arnold, is a freshman in high school and speaks in a relatable voice for young adults. Arnold is a teen boy growing up in poverty on the Spokane Indian reservation in Wellpinit, Washington. Reardan, the all white school Arnold transfers to, is 23 miles off the reservation. The use of profanity and the multiple mentions of masturbation may deter some from allowing their children to read this book, but then they would miss out on valuable lessons spoken in a language that’s easy to understand and relate to. There’s an incredible sense of hope throughout Arnold’s story.
