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.

- Lesson 10a
Mode: Pair / Group Activity
The following 6 worksheets encourage pairs or groups of students to work together to think of 6 (or more) words that fit a selected topic and that also begin with a pre-determined letter. Students work together to think of words that fit a selected topic and that also begin with a pre-determined letter. For example, the topic might be: Kinds of drinks. The chosen letter might be "C." Students try to think of any kind of drink that begins with the letter "C," i.e., Cocktail, Coke, Cola, Coors, Champagne, Crush, Coffee, etc.
Another example topic might be: City names. The chosen letter might be "D." Students try to think of city names that begin with the letter "D," i.e., Denver, Detroit, Davenport, Dartmouth, Dublin, etc.
There are nine categories to choose from on this worksheet. By choosing a different target letter each time, students can compete against each other over and over. A very fun lesson.
