Last night I taught two high level students using the “New Events” part of the curriculum. The story is very entertaining and allows us to teach a lot of good vocabulary and phrases. Although there are a couple of small errors in the story such “crap” circles and a missing article etc., this actually affords another opportunity to teach the students by having them look for these errors. I tell them that these mistakes were made for their benefit.
Also, the phrases “came to head”, “so much for”, “get in the way of”, “get a hold of” etc. and words like “hoaxer”, “obvious”, “proponents”, “evidence” and so on are great ones for our students to learn and practice. Again, the curriculum provides great material for an educational and fun lesson!
