Good morning!
Dear colleagues, I need some advice. Do your schools have a limit of the number of lessons per level/module that the students have to attend in order to be allowed to take the final exam? I am talking about language courses, of course. To make it more clear, if a student attends only 30% of the lessons, do you allow them to take the final exam and get their certificate? Thank you! Anita PS: Spammers rise and shine, I see. Some people really have nothing better to do in life.

Russian Federation

In our school a student can īt be allowed to pass exams if heshe missed so many lessons and the teacher isn īt sure that this student is able to pass the exam. But it is a very rare situation, because classmaster controls the attending of lessons and begins to work with the student, hisher parents and school administration if the student misses more than 10 lessons during a month.

I agree with Lynne and Bruce. As an explanation, to Q1 I īd say that a) passive voice "6 chapters are written" b)continuous "She is writing (now)" c) present perfect, used when a result or outcome is more important than the past and d) passive voice again "6 chapters have been written". (You could add īwill ī so it becomes "6 chapters will have been written".) Just remember that the passive voice can often sound awkward and as such we prefer the active voice. "The construction was begun" sounds very strange, while the "Construction was about to begin" sounds perfectly normal. Hope this helps. Peter

Ipad book for English teachers!
Hi, I īm an English teacher from Barcelona and I īve created an ibook to improve English writings. I īve been collecting expressions from my students ī letters and essays and I decided to publish an ipad "book" you can download. I think is really useful not only for students who want to pass their ESOL exams but also for teachers like me.

I hope you like it!

Dear friends,

Happhy holidays for those who can enjoy summer holidays right now! I īm on holiday at last after a very hard school year. I need your wise advice about a new course I have to teach in September, we  call it īinvestigation monographic job ī. It is for upper-elementary students of English and we only have one hour a week. Students have to prepare a kind of project throughout the course about a topic, I īm not sure about the topic. Have you got any ideas? It is the first time I have to do it and we have very little time, as I said just one hour a week!  One topic can be īEnglish Speaking countries in the world ī. In the very beginning we have to work how to write a monography... perhaps it is better to work in twos or threes. What do you think? I would appreciate any ideas. Smile

I have taught this subject both in English and Spanish and I let the students choose the topic. I think choosing (and narrowing the initial choice) is part of real life research projects so I think this is a good experience. If they have no idea what to choose I give them some advice but most of them end up with their own ideas. They usually work in pairs or 3 people maximum.You can hava a look here to see more about it.

I hope it helps
