A2 Speaking cards

A2 Speaking cards

A simple set of 54 speaking cards on the topics of:ENVIRONMENT >Pollution >Energy >Protecting the planetTHE MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY >Immigration >Integration >RacismCONTEMPORARY SOCIAL ISSUES >Wealth and poverty >Law and order >IT Just print and play!To be honest I love these cards simply because they are so easy to store (can easily fit into the palm of your hand) and the students can take them with them as either homework or practice. Somehow students are keener to work on a small card rather than the normal A4 format for some reason. I guess it looks like less hard work when it's really the same :) .

Auroville - A2 Revision (Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing)

I was lucky enough to find a story I can relate to most of the topics covered in the AQA A2 exam.It is some info about a place called Auroville (in India) and the idea seems fascinating to me and fortunately my students liked it too so feel free to have a look and use it in your lessons if you find it useful.There is a bit of everything: Short intro, Reading, Listening (+transcription), Speaking, Writing + some activities.Topics that can be included: ENVIRONMENT, THE MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY, CONTEMPORARY SOCIAL ISSUES. And for that reason I think it is perfect for a quick revision.Comments always welcomed!
