I´m a Brit living in Spain teaching English because that´s all I could find over here. I like it though.

Idioms about Leisure
A small worksheet on the subjects of idioms relating in some way to leisure. There is also a small quiz on the origins of the expressions that can be done in teams. The answers are at the back. I would be careful about the age of the students as the word "piss" is used and there are idioms about drinking alcohol.

SWOT Analysis - Company Adjectives - Business English Worksheet
Having to teach business English on the subject of SWOT analysis can be as boring as hell. So, I did a little worksheet on company personalities/cultures to help the students along.
