Frozen Planet

All at C

This activity is based on Frozen Planet, the BBC/Discovery series which charts life at the furthest reaches of the globe. It’s so full of jaw-dropping visuals you’ll be hard pressed to pick out just one clip. We ended up choosing a world first – this is apparently the first ever complete filming of killer whales “wave washing” a seal.
The activities for this clip are a collaborative memory task before and while viewing. After viewing, pronunciation practice with the script to work on chunking, rhythm and stress. If you can get hold of the DVD, students can try to sound like David Attenborough, and if you’re using the American version on YouTube, Alec Baldwin is the model to copy.

MASTERMIND USE OF ENGLISH – REVISED (BURLINGTON BOOKS)

A great grammar book for Advanced and Proficiency Level Students is MASTERMIND USE OF ENGLISH – REVISED published by Burlington Books. This is the Grammar book I use with my students in order to get them prepared for the Proficiency exam, either Cambridge or Michigan.

What I ‘ve just discovered is that there is some extra really helpful material here for the teacher to use when teaching some specific units of the book! I will definitely use it from now on!
