Unfortunately students don’t like reading. And what is even worse, they hate re-reading. It is next to impossible to make them re-read an article . They will complain, they will pretend or they will go to the toilet, but the majority won’t read the text again. Therefore I was surprised when I found a way to make my students re-read the same text...

But when I saw the materials for HOW MUCH, HOW MANY, LITTLE and FEW I realised that I would like to have something better. Therefore I created the following materials to help my students understand the grammar better. Infographic I love teaching grammar...

Recently I learnt that it is possible to buy used Lego bricks online and you can choose which bricks you want and how many you want. So I ordered the following set of bricks into each box.

I am not a really good teacher. But I would like to be. That is why I study a lot. Recently I read two books which tried to sum up what the scientists know about teaching and learning. The first one is called What Does This Look Like In The Classroom?: Bridging the Gap Between Research and Practice by Carl Hendrick and the other is Make It Stick by Peter C. Brown....

In this post, I would like to share with you a set of materials which I have designed to teach the past simple tense. Using these worksheets my students learnt to form the past simple tense of the regular verbs, questions, negatives and the short answers. All these worksheets support autonomous learning and they are easy to use. I hope you will find them useful. Regular...

by Ewa Gorna from http://www.montenglish.com . One of the most important things for me in teaching, no matter what age the students are, is students’ autonomy. Autonomous students are intrinsically motivated, willing to take responsibility for their own learning and aware of their preferred learning strategies.

The verb to BE in the past tense is one of the most important grammar points in English. As both WAS and WERE belong among 100 most frequent words in English, it is paramount that students know and use them correctly.

Recently my colleague noticed that our textbook contains too few exercises to practise the verb HAVE GOT. To bridge this gap I decided to create a board game. A board game will allow my students practise the grammar in a fun way and this activity can be used repeatedly. Have got board game.pdfDownload Print the file once for each group of 2-4...

Imagine that even your most challenged students understand new grammar? Imagine that they discover the rules themselves? Imagine that your students ask you to test them on the topic you have just taught. All these things have happened to me after I started to use colourful teaching. What is colourful teaching? These are cleverly designed materials which use colours...
