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.
Last Time - August 29, 2016Lesson Collection #1 - Lesson 20b
Getting pairs of students completely engrossed in a discussion about past experience is an excellent way for students to improve their English. With this lesson, students will be inherently involved in asking each other questions using the simple past tense. There are ten questions on each worksheet, all of them asking a similar question:
When was the last time you...
After students answer the first question, the partner asks as many follow-up questions as possible to learn all of the details about this experience. The questions will probably involve Who, What, When, Where, Why, How as well as an assortment of other questions such as: Did you...? Were you...? etc.
It's not important for students to finish all of the questions on each worksheet; instead pairs of students should thoroughly question each other to get as many details about the experience as possible.

The First TIme (See Lesson 20a above).
A HUGE THANKS !!
Because of what you do at EFL4U, my school is one of the best in the city. I think it’s really important for students to have fun, to act, to react and learn English by using it! With your active lessons, my students do all of that, and more….
Grammar is taught after or before the lessons… and all of my students learn while having lots of fun.
Kurt, EFL4U IS THE BEST THING THAT I HAVE RECEIVED. EVERY YEAR, YOU ARE MY SANTA CLAUS.
Betty Tokeshi - EFL Teacher
Your lessons are professionally done and most of all fun!
We all find your materials more than just a fun filler even though they do liven things up.
I post each of your lessons on a teacher’s exchange board Mondays at school for the other trainers. The feedback has been nothing but praise.
Keep up the good work.
Margaret Ann Doty - EFL Trainer

I’d like to tell you that I find the activities wonderful. I teach young learners, adolescents, young adults, adults… and they work with all of them. All the lessons and worksheets are very creative and they foster my students’ motivation and participation.
