Only Present tenses are possible in these sentences?   
 
Dear collegues,
I have learned so much by your answers to other posts but now I need to ask you for help myself.
The students were asked to fill in these sentences with correct forms of the verbs in the brackets:
It .....(be) a fine morning today. The birds ....(sing) in the trees, and there ...(be) not a cloud in the sky. 
 Some students wrote in Present: 
It is a fine morning today. The birds are singing in the trees, and there is not a cloud in the sky.
 Some students wrote in Past:
It was a fine morning today. The birds were singing in the trees, and there was not a cloud in the sky.
These 3 sentences weren ´t connected with any other context. It was a serious English language competition for the best students from different schools who have studied English for 6 years... The students who gave answers in Past tenses lost their points and we teachers were told that we must teach the signal words better (here: ´today ´ for Present tenses)...
 
Everybody, if you have read this post, could you give your opinion, please? I ´m really lost. Till now I thought it´s possible to speak in the evening about  today ´s morning that was fine.
 
Thank you in advance,
Ruta

It ´s a sunny day today. 

I ´ve done a lot of work today. 

What did you do today? I washed the car and cleaned the house. 

I think I ´ll get a haircut today. 

I ´m going to play golf today. 

Please don ´t come and tell me the word today can only be used with a present tense. IMO without context it is difficult to know what tense to use. In your example, past tense can be used if it was said in the afternoon or evening of that day.

As I´ve said before, exam questions should be totally unambiguous and only have one clear and correct answer. Your questions don´t seem to fit that description.

Dyslexia and Foreign Language Teaching   
 
Hi all
 
For anyone with an interest in dyslexia, maybe this free online course through Lancaster Uni is for you. (3 hpw for 4wks). Not only useful but looks good on your CV (but you do need to pay to get a certificate of participation).
 
 
I learned about it via the British Council FaceBook site which were advertising Understanding Language through Southampton University and British Council, which I think I´ll do as part of my PD requirements.
 
 
Cheers
 
Jayho

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?

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"?

What we talk or write about is the topic/subject. A topic is usually a word or a phrase. A theme is a main idea. A theme is always a message, i.e. a sentence.
 
For example, the teachers says,  "Today we are going to talk about university education. Write down the topic, please - University Education." 
 
I hope you find this useful. 
 
Best wishes,

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.
