Here is a new lesson plan.  I am going to try out something new for a month and see what happens.  I will add an Mp3 file which includes a reading of the news story and also some added information for the definitions.  Hopefully they can help your listening practice as well!  I may add quizzes to these lesson plans as well in the future!

Here is my new lesson plan for this week!  I have been slowly trying to develop a NEW style for my lesson plans, but it has been slow.  Hopefully, sometime in the next few months, I will have audio for these lesson plans, so you can also listen to news story, personal comments, and the vocabulary pronunciation.  Thanks for your patience and support!

Russia Wants to Land on Europa

Landing on a moon of Jupiter!  I think this sounds like a really interesting idea.  This moon is supposed to be mostly covered with ice.  Although there may not be any life there now, maybe there was life there in the past, or can be life there in the future.  I know Canadians will probably be the first to buy houses there, because we are so used to the cold weather!

Here is some really cool information about Jupiter.  This websites have questions from students all over the world.  Hope you can learn something cool here!!

Hello All,

Thanks for being so patient with me over the past month.  I have been busy moving apartments and getting settled in.  I am also working on a new project which I hope you can find useful.  I am now preparing my own ESL material.  This material is currently only aimed at lower and intermediate students.  However, I hope to add more material for advanced students.

This projects is mainly because I need more lower and intermediate level material that is based on recent news events.  This help to teach English by using grammar and vocabulary which is relevant to building contemporary English skills.  Each lesson plan will feature a recent news event with excerpted and modified text from an original news story.  I change come grammar and vocab to suit the lower levels students, while continuing to build towards reading mainstream media.  The lesson plans also include possible conversation topics and useful grammar points.  I will include these lesson plans in my blog so you can download and print them, or you can just look using your computer.  They will be in PDF format.  If you cannot read PDF files, let me know.  I think you should not have a problem.

Again, thanks for your patience while I get settled.  Hope to hear from you soon.

Here are links to the first three lesson plans:
