Top resources   
I found a great ppt on here today.The House: where is Emily? An all time favourite of mine is this one by gourkhan and if I ´d paid that fellow 10p every time I ´ve used this ppt, he would be able to retire a wealthy man! http://www.eslprintables.com/powerpoint.asp?id=42938#thetop
Would anyone like to share their favourite resources?

A top of the top resources is the animated time clock of foose1.
To be used and re-used with difficult (loud) low level classes. An amazing ppt that will motivate your ss to learn the time and will provide you with 30 ´ peace, pure happiness and satisfaction.
Hope it helps.

Business Journey?   
Hi All,
 Yesterday I corrected a student and told him that, though not incorrect, it is not common to say "business journey". It is more common to say "business trip". After thinking about it, I got to wondering if it wasn ´t a BrE AmE thing. So here is my question:
Is "business journey" commonly used in any part of the English speaking world?

My beloved conditionals   
Hi fellow teachers,
After so many years struggling to teach the rules of Grammar, I must now seek assistance from experts like you. Please look at this multiple choice question:

I have a test in the next class. Luckily, I have studied. If I ……… I ……… nervous.
a::) study - wouldn’t be
b::) am studying - haven’t felt
c::) studied - will not feel
d::) have studied - don’t get

My Answer Key says d) is correct. The other options are really bizarre, all right. But d) doesn ´t sound good to me. Perhaps if it said "Because I have studied...?
All help welcome! 
Many thanks

New Word for "Daffynition" 21/11/17   
Thank you MoodyMoody!
I just love this game! I also want to thank every participant for expending my English culture. Yeah! Here we want wit, goof, anything but an actual dictionary definition. 
This week, have fun with "macaronic".
I ´ll be picking up the winner this coming Monday.

When a person is a "wet noodle" they are drab, lacking energy, and not really fun to be around ( a real sleeping pill).
Macaronni is a type of paste
Chronic  means something is persistnat or long term.
a macaronic is therefore, a chronically boring person (not the guy you want at your party).

Hi, Gang --- 
I ´ve been away a while, but I ´m back. And, apparently, in my absence I became an idiot. 
I ´m now doing materials for primary school text books, and I put together a nice little worksheet for modals. 
Problem is, when I open it on my computer? It looks great. When I upload it here? The formatting gets all out of whack, nothing lines up right, and all my beautiful work is for naught. 
Help???  Any thoughts or suggestions? What am I doing wrong? 
Thanks in advance.

I agree with Giorgi that an older Word versión may help -at least it sometimes fixes my WS when I have a similar problem to that described.
But, the link isn ´t working, Bruce is right.
How about a screenshot pasted onto Word? It ´s a cheap job but if the quality is good enough all of us will be able to use it, if not edit it.
Hope you can fix it

moving X-mas film to get your students talking    
Remember last year ´s ad with a grandpa who was learning English to talk to his granddaughter in London? Well, the Polish auction service (something similar to Ebay) has made another one for this year entitled "A talisman - share what you have for Christmas". It ´s short (4 min.) and bound to get your students talking. I ´d say, quite moving, too. With subtitles, but generally little speech so good even for quite elementary students.
