not messy   
Dear colleagues
It īs very common to describe a room as "messy". So common that I can īt figure out how to say the opposite :) !
I īm not sure "the classroom was orderly" works, I īd rather use "orderly" for people.
Is "the classroom was in order" ok ???
Thank you and have a great new school year!

You can also say the room is all cleaned up. Or everything is in its place.

Please, Chinese colleagues, help!   
Dear colleagues,
I will start this year in a school where classes are composed by a majority of Chinese students. I live in Italy and I teach English. It is my first experience of this kind and any help would be appreciated. I want to start in the best possible way and ensure to my students the best learning experience. Can you help please? Thank you in advance. I ask for help to Chinese colleagues or to anyone with a similar experience. I would really appreciate any help.

Here īs an idea ---- start a separate post to request communication with teachers in China. Ask for their favorite ideas for each level of learning.  I īm sure they will all have ideas you can use. Make a note of their names, and then look at the materials they have contributed. Since they are in China, I īm sure they have designed stuff with their own Chinese students in mind.   --- Your previous post says "Chinese colleagues" -- Well, almost nobody teaching English in China is actually Chinese. So you want to start a post that reaches out to "Teachers In China"

I agree with ueslteacher to a certain extent. It īs not really written language, it īs an expletive just come into the language, which has been incorrectly transcribed. It should be īsick of Ant ī. This is what we Brits feel about one half of the comedy duo Ant and Dec. We are actually sick of them both so that is short for īsick of Ant and Dec ī.

I need your help!   

Tomorrow I īll discuss teenagers problems with my students. They can ask a question but I īm not ready to answer which word is more used "zits", "acne" or "pimples". And what do the teenagers often do with them "squeeze" or "pop"? Can you help me?

USA: you "pop a zit" (or pimple) and if you have more than one zit you have acne.

caption competition winner   
Wow! The entries were great and it was genuinely a hard decision. Loved īfreeze frame ī and the idea that those guys were gobsmacked because One Direction have broken up (very topical). I learned something - had to google Wentworth. The bottom line is spinney, you can īt beat Tenko ;-). Loved the offbeat thinking which had them astounded that someone has seen the faces of the humans in īTom and Jerry ī...Chicken nuggets for dinner, OMG, no!.... News of a pregnancy... Laughed out loud at the new inmate with Mefisto in an interesting place...I liked the idea of them being horrified (or overjoyed?) at doing away with teaching the present continuous tense.... And the rest... But there can only be one winner and I īm sticking with the school theme. It īs loboclaud who has them in the clink for locking the teacher īs book up and throwing away the key! I think they should get a medal, not a jail sentence!
Over to you, loboclaud.

Thanks, Lynne.
