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.
How Romantic Are You? - August 31, 2015Holiday Lesson Set - Lesson 03e
With Valentine's Day coming up in a few weeks, this is a topical lesson. And, it's really fun. In groups of three, students ask each other questions, listen carefully, make choices (using 'I would...') and keep score. Through this, they will arrive at their respective 'Romance Quotient.'
Nearly everyone has (or had?) a yearning for romance. This lesson uses 21 questions to discover just How Romantic You Are.
Since most students are inherently interested in the topic of romance and in learning about their group mates' values, this lesson almost teaches itself (after the initial setting up) allowing the teacher to mill around the classroom offering assistance where needed.
The grammar focus of this lesson works with the transitive verb prefer and the adverb rather. You'll be surprised how quickly your students will become accustomed to using these words - because they have to! Even fairly low-level ability students will catch on quickly.
The Teachers' Instructions offer several additional variations and some interesting discussion topics which will naturally spring from this lesson.
For other Valentine's lessons, see:
Silly Valentine's Survey (See Valentine Lesson 03a above)
Cupid's Solution Circle (See Valentine Lesson 03b above)
Valentine Word Circles (See Valentine Lesson 03c above) -and-
Love Is Amazing (See Valentine Lesson 03d above).
Feel free to quote me on this! I have found your lessons to be the most useful of all that I have found on the Net! The teacher’s guidance makes presenting the lessons a doddle and the students’ pages are fun, varied, stimulating, exciting and always of interest to my students.
I am a freelance EFL teacher and the students vary from Austrian teenagers, on school trips to London, to adults at a language centre. Your lessons are especially useful for the latter group as I often get called upon to cover a class at the last minute!
Keep the lessons coming please, Kurt - and many, many thanks!
Other language-teaching resource books promise exciting, ready-to-copy activities, but these worksheets really deliver the goods.
What a wonderful site you’ve got there, thanks for all the great ideas. I teach high school girls who really dislike studying, but even they manage to get some enjoyment from these lessons.
We EFL teachers need more sites like these.
I integrate your lessons into my syllabus so girls never get bored. For them, English should be entertainment and while most textbooks are short on that, your lessons are not.
Keep up the wonderful work!

I just wanted to say that I think that the lessons you have on your site are great. I have found that the lessons work well in class and my students really enjoy them.
