After over ten years of offering thousands of articles, teaching tips and classroom materials for free, I’ve finally put together several whole books of materials that I think are worth paying for:
Teaching IELTS Speaking: Interactive Classroom Activities (over 300 pages on tips, vocabulary, functional language phrases, feedback etc on Speaking Parts 1, 2 and 3) – NEW
Teaching Meetings: Interactive Classroom Activities (over 300 pages on starting and ending meetings, chairing, smoothly moving between topics, turn taking, etc)
Teaching IELTS Writing: Interactive Classroom Activities (over 300 photocopiable pages on how to analyse, plan, write, edit and give feedback on every kind of IELTS Writing Task 1 and Task 2 task, including loads of intensive practice of useful words and phrases for the test)
Teaching Emailing: Interactive Classroom Activities (over 300 photocopiable pages on writing all kinds of formal and informal emails, including over 60 pages on opening and closing emails and over 70 pages on avoiding typical emailing errors)
Teaching Social English: Interactive Classroom Activities Second Edition (over 350 pages of photocopiable materials on meeting people, small talk, invitations, socialising, etc)
Teaching Telephoning: Interactive Classroom Activities (over 300 pages of photocopiables on smoothly making and dealing with business and personal phone calls)
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 easy to use format, 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– Finish off and get up some of the hundreds of unpublished worksheets and articles waiting on my hard disk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!
