Describe the picture.
An interesting picture, with questions on prepositions and also on the content of the picture. Key on page 2. This would suit a mixed ability class as the questions range from elementary to advanced. Youtube link provided - that is where I found the picture. It is Serbian Naive art. Couldn´t find any copyright but I´m not Sherlock Holmes.

Two lessons needing no resources.
This is Lauriane´s lesson (she is a member on here.) I have developed it and added one more.It is such a wonderful idea that I wanted to share. Forget all the fancy wss, draw and describe your material. Use questioning to create outstanding lessons.

London or Paris?
I am going to extend this and do projects on major European cities - but this may be useful as a picture-based discussion exercise. By the way - one of the pictures says it´s by Alpha Holiday lettings. I´ve contacted them 3 times for permission and they haven´t replied. Anyway, it´s not actually a copyright mark. Second btw - Paris wins hands-down!

Christmas ´Guess who I am?´ or ´Guess what I am?´
The clues first, then the image flies in. This is not an original idea. Also, the last slide isn´t really about Christmas, but I couldn´t resist! ;-)

Mona Lisa vs Medusa
Making comparisons/ drawing analogies is a great way to teach EAL. This made a great lesson and so I continued with more comparisons: Harry Potter vs Gandalf, Batman vs Jack Sparrow etc. Great fun, great for language development.
