Teacher Tip - Lack of space for active learning?
Use these tips to create space in your room:
• Remove furniture, provide cushions and clipboards.
• Create lots of questionnaires. In pairs, interview people outside class, then report back.
• Provide one table for formal work, then divide the remainder of room into activity areas (reading/listening/conversation corners). Rotate the students.

Office Closed
The English-To-Go office and helpdesk will be closed from 25 December until 5 January. Should you have an inquiry please contact us before this time. All emails will be answered after this period.
