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

I’m very proud to be one of the TeachingEnglish associates, a group of wonderful English teachers from around the world. Each month a series of topics is posted on the blogs section of the British Council TeachingEnglish site, which everyone is invited to write about, including you! Here are the topics for July 2015, and anyone is welcome to join in. If you haven’t tried blogging before, why not give it a go? To inspire you, the associates offer their takes on the topics.

My contribution for July is a collection of zero prep activities from other people’s blogs, plus one recommended book. They should help you if you’re doing a last-minute cover class. Katherine Bilsborough has also written on the same topic.

  1. Lovely post, Sandy on one of my favorite topics! For last-minute solutions, I also like the idea of using class objects (erasers, rulers etc.) in new, creative ways (as I say it’s our way of “defamiliarizing the familiar”).
