Immigration and the Oscars: a conversation lesson

Dear teachers,

Last Sunday, we could all see that the Muslim Ban affected one more innocent person. Based on that I came up with this conversation lesson for B1/B2 students.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

See you! 🙂


Valentine’s Day with Beauty and the Beast

Nothing better than a tale as old as time to celebrate love!

Get in the mood and enjoy! 💙💛

Halloween lessons using authentic material

If I could, I would fill my classroom with fake insects, mummies, witches and all sorta of “spooky-related” stuff.
