The Museum of Dog Collars
 

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to talk continuously for 30 hours, then you'd better take a look at our latest Pre-Intermediate lesson, 'Longest Chat'. A Norwegian crime writer has just broken the record for the longest interview in the world. What did he talk about? What did he do afterwards? Do the lesson with your students and find out.

Perhaps instead your students would rather know about how many hot dogs it is possible to eat in 10 minutes. Our updated Elementary Lesson 'Lots of Hot Dogs' reveals how the experts manage to swallow them so fast.

Or maybe your students are wondering what to do in July? Our Featured lessons have resources on vacations and there's also a new Weekly Warmer 'Quirky Museums' on ten of the world's most unusual museums: A museum of dog collars? Toilets? There must be something there for all your students.

There's also a resource on hotels and room service 'Room Service Cleared Away' - Upper-Intermediate Instant Lesson , an Intermediate Instant Lesson on Norway's introduction of the draft for women 'Female Draft' and a new grammar resource on prepositional phrases and an updated warmer about Nelson Mandela.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page this month for news of the winner of our "Most Wanted Resource Competition"; we could be writing up your lesson!

Don't forget you can also find our "Editors' Picks" on Facebook. Each month we give away some of our editors' favourite lessons. Simply "like us" on Facebook to see them.
Hope you too enjoy these resources!

This Month's Point of Interest


This month's Point of Interest comes from one of this month's free lesson, the Pre-Intermediate Instant Lesson, 'Longest Chat!'.

Norway crime novelist talks his way to live interview record
Thu May 23, OSLO, (Reuters) - Popular Norwegian crime writer Hans Olav Lahlum set the world record for the longest interview on Thursday after spending more than 30 non-stop hours chatting in an online television broadcast.
Lahlum, who rarely paused for more than a few seconds talked about different things including U.S. presidents and characters in his stories on the online show hosted by VG Nett.
The new record awaits approval from Guinness World Records.
Fast-talking Lahlum, who is also a left-wing politician, historian and top chess player, rarely stumbled. He also talked about kebabs and the way he likes mixing puddings.
"I think I can safely say that tonight I might go to bed a little earlier than usual," he said as he and interviewer Mads Andersen beat the old record of just over 26 hours...
Norway, a pioneer in slow programming, has shown several long television hits in recent years, and public broadcaster NRK earlier this year had a 12-hour show about a burning fireplace with experts discussing ... fire wood.
In 2011, it broadcast 134 hours nonstop of a cruise ship going up the Norwegian coast to the Arctic, making the world record for the longest continuous TV program.
And an earlier broadcast of an eight-hour train journey from Oslo to Bergen was so popular, NRK had to repeat it.
