HI! I live and teach in Beijing, China. Most of my students are adults.(But also kids) I´ve designed a series of Business English lessons for use in Beijing, but they are easily adapted to any nationality. I´m a teacher on a budget, so I´m always looking for creative ways to use free resources. Celta, 2012.

SENTENCE BUILDING DICE GAME
This lesson uses dice and word lists numbered 1-6, student rolls, then makes a sentence out of that word. Sounds easy? But wait! When they get a little to comfy, you slip in another list and a second die. Then a third, fourth, fifth. Then suddenly change lists in the middle of a sentence. Or change partners. Anything to keep them thinking really fa...

SENTENCE SCRAMBLE RACE
This is the easiest class you will teach all year. This is my go-to when I have had a hectic day without a lot of prep time. This takes about 20 minutes max to get ready. You need a complete set of sentence fragment strips -- provided in this sheet -- for each team. Works best with teams of 3 or more. Have the two teams complete to match the two ha...

PICK-A-CARD SENTENCE BUILDING GAME
I am always struggling to find things for my lowest level students. I saw another teacher I work with do sentence building in a one-on-one class, and I expanded it to make it uniform, add the element of chance with the cards, and turn it into a team activity. I used it a couple of nights ago with some of my most challenging students, and I was very...

HOW TO NOT BE OFFENSIVE WHEN TRAVELING
I made this as a springboard for a conversation about cultural awareness. I teach in China and it is not uncommon for my students to have zero frame of reference for anything that is NOT Chinese. So I wanted to show the benefits of always being aware of others´ frame of reference and then encourage ...

SPEAKING ACTIVITY: FIXING COMMON MISTAKES (MISUSE OF MAYBE)
First, let me make clear that this is *NOT* only for use in China -- It definitely can be used anywhere. I teach in China, and the most prevalent speaking problem is the misuse and overuse of the word "maybe". After a lot of careful research, I have learned that this is both a cultural issue and a...

BUSINESS ENGLISH / CREATIVE WRITING - FRONTING, CLEFT SENTENCES, WRITING FOR EMPHASIS
Hi, All! I wrote this to be used in my Business English course. I found that the topic was too complicated (and boring) to put into a lesson plan, so I thought this would be more efficient. It covers fronting, cleft and pseudo cleft sentences, word choice, word order -- and why all of these...
