What Foods Are Your Country Known for?   
Hi everyone.
I am curious about something. What foods, dishes, products or meals are countries famous for?
For example: In Canada, two of the things we have are Maple syrup and a dish called, "poutine" - it īs fried potatoes with fresh cheese curds (similar to fresh cheese chunks) and hot gravy on top, sounds weird but totally delicious! 

Quick edit:

I just remembered this: Out west, in my leg of the Canadian woods, we have something called, "Prairie Oysters". Anybody want to take a stab at what they are?

Zora, you started something! I īve been reading all the posts and my mouth is watering. How long till lunch time??
Let me give you a recipe  for a typical dessert from Southern Spain. Its unpronounceable name is "paparajotes", meaning... ? Nobody knows!
Take a few leaves from your lemon tree, wash them clean, dip them in flour & egg dough and deep fry them in olive oil. Spread sugar & cinnamon over them. Serve hot.
The lemon tree leaves are not to be eaten, but they add a peculiar flavour to this unusual dish. You have to try it!

Tools for English teachers   
Dear colleagues,
I teach English as EFL in grammar school. At the beginning of the new school year I have the opportunity to buy some new education supplies for teaching. I already use an interactive whiteboard and a computer with the OHP. I have been looking for ideas for some other good teaching stuff but I haven īt found anything useful.
I wonder if anyone can recommend some good teaching aids for  ages 14-19.

Duolingo is a nice app.In addition you can develop your own online exercises with Educaplay you create multimedia learning resources and if you want lots of PPP (power point presentations) about any topic but specifically Grammar try this Pete Power Point Station I hope you and your students have a good time!

Hello people!

I’m looking for some inspiration from you all. I have this little beauty below which I would like to use for a business English workshop on teamwork and leadership but I was thinking a normal cloze exercise would be a tad too boring. Does anybody have any ideas?


There was once a team of four individuals called respectively: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.


There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.


Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.


Somebody got angry about this, because it was Everybody’s job.


Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realised that Everybody wouldn’t do it.


It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

I need keypals for my students   
I īd like to help my students have real communication in English with other students from other countries.
My intention is for them to find out similarities and differences between educational systems, schools, ways of learning, studying, and especially how people from different countries understand the importance of learning English and the importance of education as a whole.
This is part of some research I īm doing for my final paper on my post graduation course.
I intend to work with 13-year-old(ish) students, and their level of English is elementary.
Would anyone be willing to help me?
The more different nationalities join me, the more profitable the project will be.
Thanks a lot for your attention!

Anyone familiar with iSpring?   
Hi All,
I īm trying to make the training program in the company I work at more interactive and I am looking for some good suggestions for my boss. My job entails more than just English training, among other things, I also make product training videos.
I īve done some shopping around and stumbled on iSpring Suite, which seems to meet a lot of our requirements. I tried the free trial and it now has my attention.
Does anyone here have experience with iSpring or suggestions for similar software.  I īm not looking for an LMS (yet),  I am looking for creating interactive training products that we can use with our current infrastruture (e.g. convertible to html).
OBTW: I am not trying to promote iSpring or any other platform, I am on a fact finding mission and am open to most any suggestions.  So please don īt mark this as spam :)

That is a great price for something like that. I know basic programs like Office for Professionals is already over $400. So what you are looking at is probably well worth the money. I think that, deep down, you already know what you want to do, but like with any major purchase, you are somewhat unsure of making it - especially since it īs for your employer. I really believe you should go with your gut instincts - you īve checked around, probably read reviews, tried the product and weighed the pros and cons. However just to help you out - or confuse you more -  here is a link comparing similar programs as well as iSpring, which seems to be one of the few with a 5 star rating, the rest are close though!

What Do You Need? :)   
Hello friends!
I am back!  After a long time of being absent, and after some of life īs harsh up and downs, I realised that I missed creating and sharing resources with other teachers and friends. I have logged onto the site a few times but just to see how things were and if the site was still doing strong. which it is!
Now, I feel I need to get my creative juices flowing again, and thought that I īd simply ask - what do you need??  What have you had trouble finding or wish there was more of???
ESLPrintables has so many great resources, but there are always tiny niches, sectors or topics that don īt really have that many resources or worksheets and I īd like to help add to those ones, if possible.

Hi Valora and Cunliffe,
First off, have you tried Beginner or False Beginner resources for adults? Many of them are very easy, free of complicated verbs and the vocabulary isn īt baby-ish? It might be the answer to what you are looking for.  That said, I will take a look at some of the special needs resources and see if there is something I can help create.
Secondly, your idea about teen language is a GREAT idea. You would not believe how much their lingo has changed over the past few years. I spent a weekend with some pre-teens and their older brothers a while back and it was surprising to say the least. Kids really do use text messaging IRL (in real life).They do say, OMG and stuff like that. Let īs just say, it was enlightening.

Teaching Props   
I visited eslprintables member Lesley Misano recently in Italy and we had a great time. We had a trip out, lunch at Lesley īs and tea in her wonderful garden. She also showed me her best teaching prop, which was a huge home-made timeline. She demonstrated how she goes about teaching compound tenses. 
This is mine! With his help, I teach: 1.Parts of the body. 2. Prepositions īPut him on the table/under the desk ī etc...   3. Can - can he fly/jump/sing etc... 4. Patterns... If I can use him, I do! 
As you can see, at the moment, I īve put him out to grass, but I do hope this magnificent beast will be gracing a classroom very soon in the future.

Hey thanks, guys! I must say it gives me a buzz to see my gorgeous tiger (2 foot tall, by the way!) on the forum. I bought him for £8 at a junk shop and what a bargain he was.

excited + full infinitive   
Today I īve had to stand in for a colleague of mine who was on a sick leave. One of his students showed me a composition marked by my workmate and to my surprise he crossed the following student īs sentence and wrote this instead: "I īm excited about going on holiday." My colleague crossed it out and wrote "excited to go on holiday." instead. I īm a bit flabbergasted as I īve always taught my students that "excited" is always followed by the preposition "about". Could anyone shed some light on this? Is my colleague īs correction correct? If so, in which contexts? Thanks.
