staying on a good level of english
Dear colleagues,
Can you tell me what you do to keep up a good level of english when you only teach elementary students?
 I mainly teach kids whose level of English isn ´t very high and I ´ve got the feeling that my own English is getting worse and it isn ´t as good as it used to be as I don ´t really have a chance to practice it:(

I get to speak to a native speaker about 5 minutes a week unless I talk to myself and it has been that way for more than 25 years. Some general online reading, books on topics you enjoy, Youtube and my favourite... ´podcasts ´, which I listen to every day. Easy to maintain my vocabulary but speed of thought and speech seems impossible to get back, too bad.

Apart from our colleagues ´ advice, you can also buy cpe coursebooks and a tests books and do the exercises, as practice. There are many "with key" editions ...
And reading, of course. A lot! 
Good luck!
