Sandwiches, Falls And Rom Coms
If you've ever wondered whether leaving a sandwich in your parked car is a good idea, then our newest Elementary lesson will make you think, especially if you teach in bear country ('An Expensive Sandwich'). And if you've uneasily wondered whether watching romantic comedy movies might be a bad habit, our Upper Intermediate Instant Lesson will confirm your fears ('Effects of Rom Coms?').

We also have a Pre-Intermediate lesson focusing on the amazing survival stories of people who have fallen from great heights and survived ('Lucky to be Alive'), and a new Intermediate lesson detailing the frustrations of having to prove to bureaucracy that you are in fact alive ('Alive or Dead?').

We look at the problems facing Chinese bureaucrats trying to urbanize the interior of the country in our newest Advanced Instant Lesson ('China's Development Juggernaut'), we launch the first of our vocabulary worksheets based on the Academic Word List ( 'Acad Word List 1') and if you're wondering what to do in August we feature the latest in wacky festivals.

Best wishes,
The English To Go Team

Couch Kids - Intermediate Instant Lesson
American children aren't the only couch potatoes with nearly one third of children globally spending three hours a day or more watching TV or on computers, according to a study of over 70,000 teens. From Argentina to Zambia, researchers found most children aren't getting enough exercise and it made no difference if they lived in a rich or a poor country.


This Month's Point of Interest

This month's Point of Interest comes from the Upper-Intermediate Instant Lesson "Effects of Rom Coms?":

'Romantic comedies might provide 90 minutes of light-hearted fun but the happy-ever-after movies are also impacting people's real love lives, according to an Australian survey.
A poll of 1,000 Australians found almost half said rom-coms with their inevitable happy endings have ruined their view of an ideal relationship.
One in four Australians said they were now expected to know what their partner was thinking while one in five respondents said it made their partners expect gifts and flowers 'just because'.
"It seems our love of rom-coms is turning us into a nation of "happy-ever-after addicts."
Yet the warm and fuzzy feeling they provide can adversely influence our view of real relationships," said Australian relationship counselor, Gabrielle Morrissey.
"Real relationships take work and true love requires more than fireworks."'
