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.
Roll Your Fortune - May 01, 2017Paid LessonLesson Collection #1 - Lesson 18
Wouldn't it be nice if all of our important decisions about the future could be solved with the roll of a die? Well, with this lesson, they can be, if only for the fun of it!
Students first write five "Should I...?" questions about their futures. For example:
Should I study English harder?
Should I begin a diet?
Should I ask ???? out on a date?
Then, in pairs, students roll a die five times to determine the answers to their partners' questions. At the bottom of the worksheet is a list of "Fortunes including:
If you plan well, this will be a good thing.
Don't listen to others, decide for yourself.
This idea is a big mistake. Forget it! -and-
This will bring you great satisfaction.
For higher ability students, this lesson serves as an ideal discussion starter. Through Q & A, students will want to confirm their good fortunes or explain why a not so good (or bad) fortune is not really in the cards.
Students will laugh, some may cry - but everyone will be involved and having fun! And who knows, some of the fortunes may actually be correct.

Just to let you know, I surf the web all the time. Your site is still the only one I tell my friends and colleagues about. It’s the only one really worth it! This is not flattery. Just honest. Ask my students, they’ll tell you, too! You’ve got to be a genius,
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.
Thanks for all your lessons. They have been a great help.
My students and I have lots of fun using them.
I have been teaching English in Latvia for 5 years now to such varied student groups as Music College, military and Bible College students. I came across your site about a year ago and it has been incredibly helpful in my teaching. I have found all of my students - from the highest ranking military officer to the most ordinary school-kid - enjoy your lessons. The worksheets and the ideas are fantastic! Thank you so much for making the English teacher’s work easier, more varied and much more enjoyable!!!
