Teacher’s Supplementary Materials

Teacher's Walkthrough Notes

The walkthrough notes for each lesson give hints on how the materials can be exploited to the maximum benefit of the students. Later, I will post supplementary activities that can be used easily and effectively with each unit, or for review. Please feel free to contact me on any matter.

It’s got to be fun!


These materials can be used as review or extend the course over more than 15 lessons.

Aims - EnglishClip Concise English Speaking Course

Fun - It must have lots of English speaking activities that the students can enjoy and have fun with.

Flexible - It can be used for one semester of 15 classes, or easily extended to 30 classes with supplementary materials. It will provide a supporting structure for lower-level students and a sound starting point for students of a higher level. There will be many opportunities to pursue student-centered activities including games, surveys, presentations and projects etc.

Economical - It should require only one side of A4 paper for a 90 minute class and make English text more accessible to students in counties where textbooks are too expensive. It should also be light, easy to carry around, and easy to reproduce.

Interesting - It will have a useful mixture of topical and functional English using the standard RSA (Royal Society of Arts) approach of controlled, lesser controlled and free practice stages to give students the context and confidence to speak.

Concise - It will contain a high input of vocabulary and activities in a very compact form.
