Technologically and linguistically adventurous EFL teacher, trainer, writer and manager

To me, Comic Relief is one of the greatest charities around – it raises the profile of so many organisations, and sends all of the money it makes off to where it is needed instead of spending it on admin (the ‘Golden Pound‘ principle). Every two years, with the help of the comedians who set it up, it takes over BBC1 for a night in March. Red Nose Day 2011 is on the 18th March. I’ve created a couple of lessons to share it with my students. Even if you’re not planning to use them to teach, I hope it’ll be interesting for you to learn a little something about an aspect of UK culture which isn’t necessarily well-known abroad.

Feel free to download them and edit them as you see fit, with appropriate credit. The last two slides contain teacher’s notes and the links to the pictures.

For more advanced students:

For lower-level students, including a focus on modals of speculation:

If you use it, please let me know. I’d also be grateful for any feedback on how to improve it.

Enjoy!

  1. I’m very impressed with your slideshows and the fact that you created it for two levels.
    I would like to experiment with adapting the easier one for some of my students. I really like the combination of the topic of charity and modals!
    Great pictures!
    I don’t understand how to download it… sorry to trouble you!
    Thanks!
