Would you rather...?   
 
Hello, everyone!
 
I am working on budgets with my adult students, and I have decided to adapt the popular game Would You Rather? for them. I have a few choices for cards thought out, but I need more. So I thought I should ask for help, and also that we could make our own activity of it. I ´ll start it off, and the next person will answer my question and propose another choice. Thanks in advance for your help.
 
Would you rather...
Have no coffee for a month or
Have no meat, poultry, fish, or shellfish for a month?

Good ideas, Sophia and Lynne! Thanks for your help.
 
I would rather take a shower; take the subway or bus; my cell phone is dumb, so I can ´t play games on it anyway; and I would rather plan my fall trip in the spring.
 
I would also rather have the three cotton T-shirts, Cotton doesn ´t have to be dry-cleaned.
 
Would you rather get a 5-year-old car for free or a 2-week vacation to destination of your choice with nice accommodations, all expenses paid?

which is right   
 
Dear  colleagues!
Help me, please!
Which is right: "the theme of our lesson is ..." or "the topic of our lesson is ..." ,
                          "the aim of our lesson ..." or "the goal (object) of our lesson"?

I agree with MoodyMoody that strictly speaking, the theme is more notional and the topic is concrete.So a theme might be ´loneliness ´ and a topic would be ´clothing. ´ Not that anybody worries about it! I haven ´t checked Sophia ´s link yet, but the aim is more long term than the objective. So, you have the aim and then some objectives to reach it. In our school, we have no choice. At the beginning of every single lesson, we have to write: Learn: (the lesson objective(s). Do: (the activities). Check: (how we are going to check that students have understood.). So, staff and students refer to ´the learn ´ which bugs me as ´learn ´ is a verb, not a noun.

unclear! sentence   
 
Hi colleague. I have recently downloaded a WS which I wanted to make use of in my class and i came across a sentence that seems to be not clear for me. Could any one tell me what is wrong about it?
 American doctors keep warning about ‘overweight kids’ and some things are changing, very slowly. However, a lot of habits seem to be very hard to change. They are part of the American way of life.Fast Food restaurants and fries are still the most popular things to eat … often as a snack between meals.‘’I often come in for a burger after school,’’ says Billy, a teenager from S. Francisco.
 
Thanks in advance for your help.

Definitely an incorrect sentence!
You can ´t eat restaurants. As hamidov206 wrote Fast food and fries is what is meant here.

REFERENCES   
 
Hello everybody!
 
I am writing this message to kindly ask all teachers who use already published material to create their worksheets to be very careful when they mention where they found the source because otherwise their worksheets can be easily reported as illegal. I am saying this because not long ago (on March 23rd), one of the contributors in this site called Naema, from Tunisia, uploaded a worksheet which had the title "Healthy Food" and was downloaded by 135 people. She uses a text and copyrighted images that come from a Greek state book called "Magic Book" used in the 3rd grade of Greek elementary schools. It was the piloting version of the book in the writing of which I also helped. In her comments she says that the text comes from the book "Think Teen" which is the Greek state English series used in the secondary education.
I understand that she may have got it wrong and that while she was trying to find a link for her idea to help her with her worksheet she didn ´t pay attention to details. Nevertheless she didn ´t bother to reply to the private messages I sent her in order to help her understand her mistake. Maybe I should have reported her worksheet but I gave her the benefit of the doubt as it is normal for all of us to make mistakes.  
We all may have used already published material for our worksheets but I hope you would all agree that it ´s essential for the writers and creators of this material to have some kind of acknowledgement through the proper reference.
Have a nice weekend!
