    I find your ideas extremely time saving, fresh and appliable even to younger learners. Some can even be exploited in various ways, like:If God had a name. I used it, my students loved it. Thanks.

    Thanks for the effort you have put into this website, the material is bang on point. Surprisingly this blog is leagues ahead of any of the crappy websites supposedly dedicated to TEFL materials.
