Hello, I am interested to exchange books and activities among other countries in a BOOKS-FRIENDS PROJECT.
The idea is to exchange books among students from other countries - literature or something like that.
I have asked my students to choose a book for reading in the English language. After that, I would like them to send their books to the learners from other countries before this Christmas time as a special gift. The idea is also to write a few words about their impressions from the book and about them. Later on we can send letters or cards for different holidays. We can create a Skype conference for example with the learners from other countries.
We might start with writing a group letter to each other about our group members and the city. The idea of our project is also to send letters. In our world of technologies it is not usual for them to wait for letters and receive them. Also, one of the ideas is to create a hero who will travel from one country to another in a letter. When you receive the character, you need to make a video how you read the story from the previous country. Then together with your group you write a short story and send the character with it to the next country. And they do the same. In this case we can travel all around the world and have so much fun with it.
The main goal of this project is to improve the reading and writing of our students and provide them a safe environment to practice the English language in real life with other students at the same age and interests, find new friends and much more.
We are located in Curitiba city, Parana State - Brazil.
My students are in HIGH SCHOOL - 14 to 19 years old. I have 100 students who could be interested. They are begginers, A1, A2 and some of them are B1/B2. They are doing technical and professional courses and they are learning ESP - English for specific purposes in these areas: Electronics, Electromechanics, Mechanics, Vehicules maintenance, Chemistry, Environment, Civil construction and Biotechnology.
More details of this project will be sent to you via e-mail, facebook messenger or other way you prefer. So if you are interested to be part of this project please let me know.
Send me a msg here with your e-mail address - INBOX. Thanks in advance for all teachers who will enjoy to participate of this project.
I am an English teacher working at a middle school in the south of France. I have two classes of french 13 year olds (a total of 55 students) who are writing introductory letters this week to penpals…. somewhere in the world. The only problem is, they don īt have any penpals yet! Please get in touch if you have multiple students of the same age and would be interested in receiving the letters, and of course getting your students to write a reply.
Absolutely yes, that sounds great. I am meeting one of my classes this morning and we are going to start working on an introductory letter. It will include name, age, family, pets, hobbies and all the basics of course, as well as īwhat I did this summer ī using the preterit and a description of themselves. I īm hoping to persuade them to include some photos.
My classes should be finished on the project by the end of next week, then I can bundle all the letters together and send them for replies.
Do you think that could work? I do have 55 students.... there is quite a lot of them.
PS I am a native English speaker from London, but all my students are french. Their level is about A2.... although of course some of them are weaker and some of them are actually quite good. It honestly depends.
I started teaching in Czech Republic and I do not have any experience with the book Project by Tom Hutchinson. In some classes I have iTools and everything but in others I just have the book, no computer, no projector etc. So I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me some website for worksheets or some ideas about this book to make it more fun for kids. I did a search on google but I could just find the websitefor the book or some pirate versions of the book, that īs all.
Iīve worked with Project series by Tom Hutchinson. You can find additional Teaching and Learning Resources here. To access the Teaching Resources, e.g., skills-based tests and real projects made by students using Project books you have to register to Oxford Teachersī Club. It īs free.
As you can see, Lynne īs example is a metaphorical use of "portrait", even using the word "paints" with it. I said that it isn īt very common, and Lynne clearly agrees with that. She is definitely right that a verbal portrait, like a visual one, is descriptive. It can include anecdotes about the person, but for the purpose of clarifying the "image" being presented, rather than as story-telling.
It would be best to avoid using "portrait" for a verbal description of a person, because of the danger of using it more literally than is reasonable.
https://www.englishtestsonline.com/ Have a look at this online English tests website. I found it in another forum topic. There are many free tests with multiple choice questions. Maybe you can ask your students to take the tests here.
Lots going on in school this year and the fall is always a busy time. I was working on some more sets of letter decorations for my classroom and created some Barrel Letters that I plan on using around Oktoberfest and Halloween. I think these are fun and could be used in lots of different ways. Just thought I would share them here if any other teacher could use them in their classroom. Enjoy!
I have ESL classes each of 90 minutes for elementary students. About an hour students started to feel bored. I tried some interactive games, boredom still there. I want to motivate them but how?? Do you have any suggestions for such a situation?

Project 5 by Tom Hutchinson * phrases to express likes and dislikes * titles for group activity
I used these titles for a group activity with the 9th graders. They wrote their favourite activites or activities they donīt like under these titles on post its. They enjoyed it a lot, it adds some colour to the lesson as they stand up and write notes and then I read them loudly and we discussed them.
I used different fonts but it is lost when up...
