Teaching would be great...if there were no students!
I'm sure even the most dedicated teacher has thought that sometimes!  But for most of us, students are what makes teaching great and we treasure watching them learn. The look on a student's face when they finally 'get' the present perfect simple (some probably never will, unfortunately!), their pride in giving a polished seminar to other students which has involved hours of planning, editing and practice, and a lively speaking activity which has everyone having fun AND practicing the particular skill you want them to focus on. These are some of the things that make teaching so worthwhile.

At English-to-go, we are committed to producing the resources that help you help students learn: activities that help them engage and motivate them to achieve. We've always been known for our interesting reading lessons and this month's resources in the Teachers' Room include lessons on the chilling effect of global warming on Alaska, a study on the different effects of eating breakfast on boys and girls and why the right clothes can help get a promotion in the corporate workplace.

We're also committed to helping students understand significant global issues and we invite you to teach your students our World's Largest Lesson which looks at two critical problems, the current global food shortage and the continuing prevalence of landmines. 

This lesson is available free to everyone during September at http://www.english-to-go.com/english/free_lesson.cfm and for news on the World's Largest Lesson please check out: http://www.english-to-go.com/wll/index.htm  The lesson will be available for teaching during the whole of September.

This month's Point of Interest
This month’s Point of Interest is from ' 'Breakfast Study', Instant Lesson (Pre-Intermediate)

A new study suggests young adults may be less attentive in school when they skip breakfast. The effect of missing this meal is different in boys and girls, the researchers found.

The study noted that males reported being in a worse mood when they went without breakfast, and their visuospatial memory was also poorer, but this wasn't true of girls....
