Regarding Recent printables versus the whole collection
 
I probably missed it somewhere, but after 30 uploads and hopefully 30 points, one is allowed to download from the most recent collections. How does one access the whole collection? I have 5 points and I downloaded from the whole collection I believe. Also I downloaded a worksheet twice by accident wasting a precious 1 point.

Help for speaking drills - practice
 
Hello, pals.

I´d like to ask for some ideas for a situation I´m facing in this moment..

Currently I am working with a preintermediate level, they are fantastic, willing and able to work (most of them), interested in their learning process. But when they make oral presentations (speaking tasks),  they usually mix tenses, I know this is very common, but I want to improve and overcome this weakness with them. So could you please give some ideas, suggest some activities for class or homework to help with my goal of improving their speaking abilitites.

Thanx a million in advanced

IMHO mixing tenses is grammar not speaking.
You could play grammar gamble with the wrong sentences that they produced during their presentations. While you are listening to them don ´t correct their mistakes but rather write them down in your notebook. Then, use them for grammar gamble. You can find the instructions how to proceed here

Some speaking activities:

Help needed with a word cloud
 
I know this is a bit cheeky, but I really need a wordle/word cloud for a ppt I ´m making for a presentation at school. I ´ve installed Java, this and that, but I cannot achieve what I want. Last year, sarguero sent me a wordle with my name in the shape of a cat, which is now my screen saver. I ´m sure at the time, he told us how to make one.....but I can ´t remember. Is anyone around who could make me one and send it to my email?  I would like ´Promoting creative thinking ´ in a head shape, if it ´s possible. 
Lynne

I´ll wait for an offer...

Thank you Pilar. Thank you, Marion! I ´ve tried with the picture cloud, but not getting it right. Either my son will sort this out for me when he gets home tomorrow, or it ´s good old word art.
