English Gateway Newsletter #19

The end of the school year is in sight and many of us are more interested in making summer plans rather than lesson plans. Focusing on a topic of interest can help remain engaged and enthused even during the final weeks of school. In the run up to Father’s Day, let’s also honor the father figure in our lives.

New Worksheets

Two-Word Prepositions (ESL High-Intermediate)
Students recognize and practice compound prepositions as well as identify prepositional phrases.
Describing Smells (ESL High-Intermediate)
There are lots of different smells but a relative lack of direct language to describe them. Teach or learn vocabulary that describes common smells and talk about the evocative nature of smells.
Dads Matter! (ESL High-Intermediate)
it’s said that anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad. Discuss the qualities that make a great Dad and learn idiomatic expressions related to fatherhood.
Also, from the archive:
