Recession Busters
On the English-to-go website this month we have lessons to get students talking and thinking about the recession, its implications and how to survive it.

In 'Getting Smashed', a Pre-Intermediate lesson, students read about a business that helps people release their frustrations about the recession:  they can pay to smash as many plates as they like while the Advanced lesson, 'The Personal Touch For Survival' looks at businesses who are succeeding during the recession and how they are doing it.

As the festive season starts, your Intermediate students will enjoy doing 'Work Dos' to find out why most workers hate the annual Christmas party. The followup activities include selecting and plan a social event for a business during a touch economic time.

'Try Wrapping This' for Upper Intermediate students has suggestions from the latest Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog for outrageous presents, '"The whole purpose of these fantasy gifts is to make people smile," says a Neiman Marcus spokeswoman.'

And don't forget to check out the featured lessons with a Christmas resources theme.

This month's Point of Interest
This month’s Point of Interest is from 'Getting Smashed', a Pre-Intermediate Instant Lesson. 

'Insurance broker Adam DeWitt came with his wife for his birthday and took out their anger about not being able to buy a first home because the banks have frozen lending.

"It was the best $50 we've spent in the last two years, better than filling up your tank with gas, better than paying interest on your credit card," said DeWitt, 29...

The DeWitts plugged in some music by Guns n Roses, wrote the names of banks and politicians they don't like on plates and smashed away.

"Oh boy, we smashed some plates, a couple of TV trays, some cups and mugs. My wife smashed some glass flowers," said DeWitt.'
