  • Thank you for this, that's going to be extremely useful. Using Comic Sans for a lesson plan on register made me smile though! :)

  • Hello,

    Thank you very much for your comment, we are glad that you like this resource. We agree the font and general look of this material is rather dated. We will be modernising it in the future!

  • Hi Kerri,

    Thanks for the feedback and many apologies for any confusion. With the lessons on the site, PDFs and worksheets are always located in the 'Related resources' section which you can find towards the bottom of the page below any explanatory text.

    With this page, the worksheet info was duplicated on the lesson page but we have now removed that to avoid any further confusion. Apologies again and do let us know if you have any further queries.

    Best wishes,
    The onestopenglish team

  • The way you have set up this lesson is very confusing. I'm working with a student on formal and informal writing, and I can't figure out where the actual lesson is. This my first time using the full site, so it's taking much time to figure it out.

  • I've used this in class and it works really well - thanks for great material!
    Hint for enzothebaker: I used the blackboard, but if you have time, try OCR online (just type this in google). It's a free online programme that allows you to convert pdf to Word for a limited number of pdf documents (one page at a time, so if it's not the first page of a document you need to scan it first). Takes a while but worth it if you want to modify or amend pdf material you plan to use more than once.

  • Great lesson plan but there are omissions on the Text To Work On (underlinings and words) and without the appropriate program, it's impossible to amend so has to be typed out again.
