Peter Hardy

We test students ī reading comprehension by giving them a ..... test. There are many tests available online nowadays, so a quick google search can give you some pre-made tests. I.e. sites like http://www.majortests.com/gre/reading_comprehension.php or http://www.education.vic.gov.au/Documents/school/parents/secondary/readingcomprehensionpractice.pdf may be helpful. Hope this helps. Cheers, Peter.

Looking for penpals
Hello, dear colleagues!

I teach English at university in Russia. I have several groups of students aged 17-20 who are looking for penpals from different countries. Some of them are studying tourism, others-history, and most of them - international relations. So, if you have students who are interested in those subjects (or are even studying them as well) it will be great to become penpals! It īll be great to discuss current affairs worlwide and share different opinions towards them.
OR even if not, still write to me we īll find some other topics to talk about!

Narrative tenses & past participles
Hi all
Iīm looking for an easy interactive fun activity to practice the narrative tenses (low intermediate adults):
- past simple
- past continuous
- past perfect
I would also like to do something fun on the past participle form for past perfect so as to help students remember them.
My room is tiny and so the students need to stay seated. Unfortunately, the desks have to be in rows so they can really only talk to the person on either side of them.
Any good ideas for me (that doesnīt involve a worksheet)?

An activity that worked well for me: I chose 4 pictures that showed someone in trouble.
I showed the pictures one by one and asked them what  happened to the person, what they thought  he / she was doing when that happened and what had occured before. I did this as a whole class, sometimes asking individual students. They used their imagination and had fun thinking about different options while we explored the three past tenses.
As a follow-up they had to choose one of the pictures on the board and write down a short story.
Hope you find it useful!

First of all, see that your ppt or pptx conforms with the document limits. Also, be patient, wait and try uploading several times. If it still didn īt work, then it īs better to contact Victor through pm.
Welcome to the site and don īt forget to check the rules and instructions - it will save you from needless trouble:)

Hello, everyone! I have a question that might be silly to most of you guys but I really need to ask. Since I joined this site I īve been using a very old version of windows. Now that I have finally got Publisher 2010 version I find myself having trouble to format the images I insert. I used to make the background of the pictures transparent by using a "brush" that appeared among the icons but now I don īt seem to be able to find a replacement for that tool. Can any of you help? Thanks in advance!Wink
