After over ten years of offering thousands of articles, teaching tips and classroom materials for free, I finally put together two whole books of materials that I think are worth paying for:
Teaching Social English: Interactive Classroom Activities Second Edition (over 350 pages of photocopiable materials on meeting people, small talk, invitations, socialising, etc) – NEW EDITION
Really Learn the Most Useful Telephoning Phrases (over 100 pages of self-study materials that really do what the title promises)
As well as being full of useful materials in an easy to keep and use format and a good guide to effective materials that can easily be copied for other language points, buying a copy would help me cut down on my teaching hours a little and spend more time on writing and publishing . Things I could do with that time include:
– Finish off and get up some of the hundreds of unpublished worksheets and articles waiting on my hard disk
– Finish off some of the half-finished e-books waiting on my hard disk (on Meetings, IELTS, Negotiations, Presentations, Travel English, etc)
– Polish up the materials already on here (including adding more of those answer keys that people always ask for…)
– Provide more useful links to other people’s stuff
Votes on how I could most usefully use my time below please!
If you can’t afford to contribute at the moment or have already bought both books, you can also support TEFLtastic by sharing a link to an e-book and or your favourite pages on this site with as many people as you can.
