    Thanks, Yeyen. Where are you teaching? I am teaching an advanced class here in Prague so that’s the main reason I’m making these advanced lessons. I try to make the vocabulary as challenging as possible for them. It’s good to hear that someone else is using the lessons =)

    Brilliant. I love lessons with a role play, debate or some type of speaking activity at the end. The students seem to love it too!
