What Makes Our Lessons Different?
Teachers Save Time
Reduce lesson planning and gain freedom in the classroom. With all students busy, the teacher can casually roam around the classroom and offer assistance wherever needed.
Students Learn by Doing
Minutes after beginning each lesson, classes often become noisy. At times, very noisy. Why? Students, in pairs or small groups, actively engage in completing the lesson task. They use English to learn English.
Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing
Oral communication is important. Listening and speaking have priority in our lessons; students need to carefully listen to each other. Reading is also important for the success of the lessons. The amount of writing required varies.
Fun for Teachers & Students
We believe students learn better when having fun. Our lessons range from silly to serious but each has a solid task-specific educational goal including grammar usage, vocabulary building and fluency improvement to name a few.
I Did, Too! - March 20, 2017Lesson Collection #5 - Lesson 14e
Students practice rejoinders using past tense did and didn't. For example, one student may say:
Last Valentine's Day I had a toothache.
Other students in the group reply to that statement truthfully by saying things like:
I did, too!
So did I!
Me, too! -or-
Then another student reads a sentence from the worksheet such as:
Most of last month, I didn't take a bath.
Group mates offer appropriate rejoinders such as:
I didn't, either!
Neither did I!
Me neither! -or-
As in the above two examples, many of the sentences are quite silly (thus fun) and students need to respond honestly and quickly. To make this activity more enjoyable (and difficult) - students may not use the same rejoinder once it's been said for any given statement. If all students simply say: Me, too! Me, Too!, Me, Too, it's not only too easy, it's boring.
There are five other versions of this lesson:
I Am, Too! (See Lesson 14a above)
I Can, Too! (See Lesson 14b above)
I Do, Too! (See Lesson 14c above)
I Will, Too! (See Lesson 14d above) -and-
I Have, Too! (See Lesson 14f below).

It’s always very stimulating to get my e-mail every Sunday morning because I know there will be one of your lessons in it. I read them every week and have tried to put them in practice. I must say they really work! Thanks a lot for the great lessons. As a teacher and teacher trainer, sometimes I run out of ideas. Your lessons are very important, not only for me but for my trainees as well.
That’s one of the greatest ESL sites on the web (the best one when it comes to activities).
