    Wow, great site and really interesting lesson plans. I wish you offered them as a printable PDF too, then it would be beyond good.

    Ok, just found the .doc link at the top. The site is officially beyond good.

    Great lesson plans…..a nice mix of discussion, vocab and roleplay making it really interactive, something which most teaching books fail on in my opinion.
    When will there be more Topics coming?

      Hi Debbie. I’m no longer teaching classes that require me to make topical lesson plans, so most of the material I’ve been posting recently has been grammar-related. Things may change though in the future, as my classes change.

    The fuck is that Ukrainian flag doing here!
    As a Russian, I think it is wrong when teaching becomes politically involved.

      The state-run Russian media is lying to you about the purpose of the invasion. If your country still has access to YouTube, please view this video (https://www.youtube.com/embed/RzBM591AJk8) and let me know what you think. It’s from a captured Russian policeman.
