WELCOME TO ELT-TUTOR’S RESOURCE BANK
What can you find here? Materials for teaching English, whatever your lesson aim is: skill-training (listening, speaking, reading, writing) or grammar/vocabulary teaching.
This is a quick help you need to read only once before you teach any grammar point the first time. It gives you a very brief description of a grammar point and a white-board plan, things you will need to put onto the whiteboard when teaching it the first time or revising it later. ENTER
Find some useful ideas, materials how to elicit, teach or revise vocabulary with your students. Go beyond the traditional mind-map idea and activate what your students have memorized, recycle what they can already use in some context. ENTER
We hear and listen way before we are able to see, speak or use our body. We listen to kids’ stories over and over again. As an adult, we speak – often without listening to ourselves or to the others. It’s time we gave back to our ears their well-earned importance. Find here listening activities, articles about how to teach, practise and improve listening skills in an ELT lesson. ENTER
Before you use grammar, you put words one after the other: so you need vocabulary.
Before you say words, you repeat them: you need to care for your pronunciation.
Before you talk, you reply: don’t speak – interact. Here are some exercises, tasks, activities, topics and further reading about how to turn good listeners into good speakers. ENTER
Humans are verbal animals with gadgets. We are supposed to talk to our co-humans, however, we text, send emails, write blogs, tweet, post, comment, like and use smileys. Modern written communication has its (sometimes unclear) rules and habits. It needs to be addressed in ELT too. Find here ideas and tips how to teach writing. ENTER
People often say that we don’t read any more. This is simply not true. We might not read classic literature, but we read blogs and posts and reviews and comments. In every beach bag there’s a magazine, what’s more a thick book. We DO read. So find here worksheets for reading practice and articles about how to train reading skills and comprehension. ENTER
