 Our Living English Comes Alive

 

Some years ago, an industrious team of editors worked diligently (and of course cooperatively, sensitively and creatively!) to harvest the choicest of English-to-go resources. Inspired by their dream to offer teachers the best resources, they carefully crafted a collection of collaborative and communicative classroom and online resources: the creative and cataclysmic result was Livng English.
Then after this long labor they set their collection free and sent forth messages far and wide with the news that Living English was now Alive!

If you didn't understand that last paragraph, then it's a good sign that you are quite sane! What are we trying to tell you? Here's the message in a less flowery way:

1. We have put together a blended learning package with four levels of English Language Course that we call Living English. Each level of course has 12 separate units. In each unit there are printable resources (Instant Lessons, Warmers, Anna Grammar and Max Vocabulary Worksheets) focused on a shared theme and/or vocabulary and language points. Each unit is then complemented by online English language resources for students with reading, writing, listening and vocabulary exercises on the same theme that can be done in the classroom or at home.

2. We are introducing Living English to you and if you're an English-to-go gold member, you and ten of your students can sign up for a month for free. If you're not a Gold member,  for only US$30.00 you and 10 of your students can sign up for 1 month. To find out more, go to our course and prices page.

3. Living English hosts the best of our materials, grouped so you can find resources of a particular skill and theme and offering you a choice of lessons. The course is regularly updated so you can expect to see new 'favorites' making their home in it and replacing out-of-date materials.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page! 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!

That's all for this month!

This Month's Point of Interest


This month's Point of Interest comes from one of this month's new lessons, the Upper-Intermediate Instant Lesson, 'Leftovers'.

The term "shengnu" - directly translated as "leftover women" - was coined to refer to professional women who have not married by their late 20s.
"Chinese people often think males should be higher in a relationship in every sense, including height, age, education and salary," Ni Lin, who hosts a popular match-making television show in Shanghai, told Reuters.
"This leads to a phenomenon in which A-grade men marry B-grade women, B-grade men marry C-grade women and C-grade men marry D-grade women. Only A-grade women and D-grade men can't find partners.
In Beijing, more than a third of women in their late 20s and 30s are looking for husbands, according to the dating website Jiayuan.com. Media reports say there may be as many as 500,000 "leftover women" in the capital.
There are plenty of men to go round among China's nearly 1.4 billion people, but social status can conspire against single professional woman once again.
China's population is more tilted towards men than in many countries due to the government's one-child policy and a cultural preference for boys. The latest census in 2011 showed there were twice as many single men born in the 1970s as women of the same age.
But unlike "leftover women", these "shengnan" or "leftover men" often live in lower-tier cities and do not make much money.
The Shanghai city government tries to help women like Xu by arranging regular match-making events. One in May attracted 20,000 single men and women.
Lucy Wang, a 32-year-old Chinese language teacher who attended the event, said all she could find were playboy types or momma's boys. "I sometimes wonder if there is something wrong with me," she said. "Twenty thousand people and yet I can't find anyone I like.
