Royalty-Free Clip Art Collection for Foreign/Second Language Instruction

November 11, 2009

Hi, again!

Here’s a clipart collection I stumbled across while planning one of my lessons.It’s not a huge database, but you can surely make use of some of them. They’re all drawings (line art) of basic concepts like warm, cold, fast, plus verbs , nouns, etc. On their site you’ll also find link to other websites offering royalty-free cliparts for EFL instruction

The site is: http://tell.fll.purdue.edu/JapanProj/FLClipart/

Have fun!

Creative Writing Prompts

November 10, 2009

Hello!

If you’ve sort of run out of ideas for writing practice, here’s a website with loads of [writing] topics to choose from:

http://www.creativewritingprompts.com/

You could possibly get your students to pick a number between 1-329. Then send them to the website.

Just an idea.

Cheers,

Fernando Guarany

Reg and Lellow

November 2, 2009

Hi, everyone!

Following Dyego’s post on short stories, here’s a website I’d like to recommend: Reg and Lellow – http://www.regandlellow.com/

On their site you can find a series of “PowerPoint stories featuring the characters Reg and Lellow by Chris Roland. The stories have been designed to help young children learn English and can be used in class with pre-school, infant and primary levels.  As they have been written by an English teacher, they also have a number of pedagogical features to aid language acquisition, make in class storytelling as easy as possible for the teacher and story content easily integrated into schools’ English curriculum.”

Worth a visit.

Cheers,

Fernando
