I´m about to make some flashcards for students to practice the structure "Have you ever...?"
Here are some ideas:

Have you ever been stuck on an elevator?

Have you ever been locked in a hotel room?

Have you ever seen a crab?

Have you ever had a pet tarantula?

Have you ever dreamt of flying?

Can you add any other? I mean, any other unusual question. Thanks!

need your opinion   
Are the words "cake" , " fries" and "idea" countable or uncountable?

6 May 2015

United States

I think you can answer this for yourself (but I will still tell you). Here īs how to figure these out:

 Can you bake three cakes? Yes, so "cake" is countable.

   "Cake" can also be uncountable, because you can talk about having "some cake" (which is different from "some cakes"). You can īt have "some fry" or "some idea" (although there is an expression "to have some idea", but that is a totally different situation).
Can you eat three fries? Yes, so "fries" is countable.
Can you have three ideas? Yes, so "idea" is countable.
I īm sure I gave you far too much information, but my basic answers are there, too. Yes, all three are countable.

help with science materials   
Hello everybody

I am currently teaching science to 9-year-olds and I cannot find anywhere photocopiable materials for teachers. If any of my Spanish colleagues happened to have Essential science plus 3 photocopiable materials (Richmond publishing/Santillana education) I would be very grateful.

good afternoon every body,
I want  your help to make me able to differentiate between two of reading comprehension skills;
anlayzing the written information and
understanding the information is not explicit in the passage  
 Have  the two skills have the same meaning ? 
Which questions  are suitable  for them if they are different ? 
for example : 
if I asked student to  complete  the following  sentences
the  mother īs mother  is your   .......
I  have  a .... of tea  every morning 
are  these  sentence followed which skills  ( analyzing  the written information or understanding the information or not  explicit in the passage )

The mariage of Figaro - Cherubino   
I have started a project with some students about opera. The aim is to create a trailer for their chosen opera. They have decided to work on Cherubino (from The mariage of Figaro, Mozart).
Our question is : do you know if a modern version exists? We would like to mix the original version with for example rap or another music genre, but so far we have not find any artist who could have used Cherubino for his/her song. You know like Stromae who has just used "Carmen" for his new title...
Thanks a lot in advance!

South Africa - Pen Pal Partner Requested   
Hello Everybody. I teach at a public school and we are interested in developing a partnership with a school from South Africa. We īve already started to write the letters but it will take a little longer.
Important facts about us: our school year starts in February and finishes in November (in December we have final exams).
Our winter vacation happens in July (2 weeks).
They are 33 6th graders (between 11 and 12 years old in average)
Our city is Joinville (Santa Catarina State - Brazil)
We have 2 ESL classes per week, 48min each one. (Only! I do miracles with this.)
My interest as a teacher is to exchange the cultural similarities and differences between our countries.
I hope somebody can help me :D

5 May 2015


Hi! I don īt know if you might be interested, but I teach 6th and 7th graders around 12 years old. We are from Argentina, but we are also looking forward to reading emails from kids around the globe, no matter what their first language is. If you are interested, let me know! 
We would like to exchange a few emails for a month or two.
I īd love to be part of  such a great experience!
