Hi, there! I´ve been teaching English for some time now. Being a teacher is becoming harder and harder these days despite all the new technologies at our disposal... kids are getting more and more demanding and sometimes my creativity fails me! That is why I find this site a handy tool whenever I need something new and imaginative. Hope I can contribute with some useful stuff as well.
