  • Hi Tim,

    Glad the lesson is useful! The video currently on the page is hosted on YouTube, so I have added a downloadable version for you. If you look under 'Related files' you will see an .mp4 version which you can download and save to your USB stick. There is no problem at all with rights if you are using the video in the classroom.

    I'm not sure if the file format will play on your school's particular DVD player though - from personal experience, some play mp4s fine and some struggle - so I'd recommend checking in advance of the lesson, to avoid any issues.

  • Hi there--Very good, this tool. I don't have computer access or internet in my classroom here in France, but I do have a TV screen and DVD player that accepts USB hard drives. I can dowload on my home computer. What's the best way to download the videos--directly to a USB drive? Then take it to class to show onscreen? No problem with rights? Thanks, Tim

  • I have found this resource very interesting and useful for a one to one lesson. (Student level B1-B2) We have tried the vocabulary on a shopping website and ordered beauty products for Christmas.
    Thank you.

  • Hi Adele,

    Great to hear that you enjoyed your CELTA course so much and decided to pursue your love of languages through teaching English. Do you have any plans to take a DELTA and what form does your professional development take at the moment?

    On the site, we have some interviews with teachers about professional development which might make interesting viewing:

    Looking forward to seeing your ratings on those teens resources :)

    Best wishes,

  • Hi - thank you for the suggested resources. I'll let you know how I get on - I might even 'rate' them!
    I'm certainly enjoying this new chapter in my career. I graduated in 1983 from univ of Sheffield with a 2:1 in English Language - only 2 of us studied English Language and Linguistics back then! I looked in to tefl but was told that 'the bottom had dropped out of tefl'!! but then in the early 80s, the bottom had dropped out of most things. So I qualified as a public sector accountant and worked in that sector for 20 years. It was only when my children were older that I was brave enough to pursue my love of language and learning! I loved the CELTA course and would recommend it to anyone.

  • Hi Adele,

    Thanks for getting back in touch. It's very interesting to hear about your teaching context and indeed about what is a relatively new teaching context. Teaching 1-2-1 young learners in the UK after working in mainstream state education must be an interesting challenge. Congratulations on getting your CELTA and hopefully you are enjoying this exciting new chapter in your teaching career.

    In terms of materials for teens, we have a number of series that might well suit your learners, all of which can be found in the Teens section:

    Impressions is a series aimed at getting students to express opinions using communicative activities:

    Spot on is a series of topical news lessons aimed at teenagers divided into three levels (elementary, intermediate and advanced):

    A Time to Travel is a series of fun audio lessons where students follow the characters on a trip through history:

    Beyond/Go Beyond are self-contained lessons for late teens on academic topics and are available in British English and American English:

    Webquests are lessons on festivals and special occasions throughout the year in which students have to complete worksheets by finding information on websites:

    Hopefully your teens will enjoy all of these and please do let us know how you get on.

    Best wishes,
    The onestopenglish team

  • Hi many thanks for your comments. I've been registered for about a year and used the search facility for specific purposes (e.g. phrasal verbs, affixes) and found useful articles and lesson plans in that way; finding the 'live speech' items was a revelation!
    I have a pgce in primary - so some mainstream experience - and CELTA which I gained in March this year. As I'm unsure about travelling (I'm in the 'mature' category!) and there is little scope for adult, group lessons in my home city, my current students are 1to1 , young learners (whose L1 is Mandarin), at KS2, KS3 and GCSE. So I find I try to strike a balance between national curriculum and EFL. The younger learners have been in the UK (and hence school) for around 18 months, the gcse learner has only been in the UK since August - hence the need for listening skills.
    I find the ks2 (y3-y4) learners the least problematic - resources are almost endless, especially when you add games e.g 'guess who?' It's resources for the teenagers that are problematic (not surprisingly!). They're not quite ready for some of the material in coursebooks (Cutting Edge, Speakout) but too old for the 'young learner' material.
    Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
