What Are We Cooking Up This Month?
 

We've cooked up a real variety of resources for you this month.
In the food section we're sure your students will enjoy our new Weekly Warmer "What Will I Cook?" which encourages them to plan a meal in groups using photos of real foods and practicing the use of different future forms.

This resource could be teamed with the new Upper Intermediate lesson "What's For Dinner?" which focuses on a new app foodies will love.

Your students will also enjoy the online Instant Workbook which complements this lesson.

Moving from food and apps to apps and animals, zoos in North America are finding that orangutans love using iPads. This lesson looks at what the apes are doing and why the zoos are encouraging it. (Animal Apps - Intermediate Instant Lesson)

There's a more serious focus in the lesson "Greek Mosquitoes" for Advanced students. This lesson looks at the arrival in Greece of mosquito species carrying diseases like malaria. 

We also have a new Max Vocab worksheet, an Anna Grammar on the third conditional and a new Instant Workbook which looks at using "going to" and "will". There are three exercises to do.

We hope you have a great month.

Best wishes from
The English-to-go team

This Month's Point of Interest


This month's Point of Interest comes from one of this month's new lessons, the Pre-Intermediate Instant Lesson, 'Drive For Status'.

Drive for status speeds Indonesia car sales
Mon Jul 02, JAKARTA (Reuters) - Tebet is a modest suburb of the Indonesian capital Jakarta. In Tebet houses cost around $100,000. Outside many of the [houses] are Mercedes-Benzes, BMWs and Jeeps - imported cars worth as much as the houses themselves. In the city center and its more exclusive districts, drivers show off sleek Italian sports cars, British Bentleys, and the most expensive people carriers. [The luxury cars are a sign of the growing wealth of the middle class in Indonesia and the full wallets of the rich after years of a mining and stock market boom. Both the rich and the middle class want to buy the most prestigious cars they can afford. Sabam Rajagukguk, who works for a company running nightclubs and bars, had a Toyota SUV but now has a $190,000 Land Rover Discovery. "It makes me feel li ke the king of the road," he said. "People care how others see them. A Range Rover is the car for the 'haves' now, for a weekday car. ... For a weekend car, the sky is the limit. I see 20-year-olds arriving at clubs in Lamborghinis."
