    This is my first reply in an almost two year of following your blog, by the way, I love your versatility and your accomplishment as a teacher. Well I am an english teacher from the far side of the border – Matamoros, Tam and I really appreciate all your post – work.
    I would like to share a link about free printable materials:
    you could find in this site very easy proyects, flashcards and lots of useful ideas for reading, and books with lesson planning included.
    Love to follow you and greetings!

    No offense, but you’ve got terrible mistakes for an EFL teacher.
    I think your intentions are good, that much I can tell. But it wouldn’t hurt if you checked and corrected some major grammar mistakes. All in all, I’d say this is a rather peppy blog. Thanks for sharing.

      Mistakes such as? Please tell me to make the corrections

    Mistakes? Come on! as an EFL Teacher and an Online Teacher Training Tutor, i can tell that your english is beyond perfect and i know teachers all over the world, including the US and their grammar isn´t the best. Of course the most important thing on speaking and teaching EFL is communication. I LOVE YOUR BLOG.

      August 21, 2014 at 4:56 pm

      Thanks… of course, my English is not perfect. I don’t have the sixth sense grammar that most L1 speakers have…

      If I have mistakes (which of course, I have) please tell me. Otherwise, how am I going to learn?

    I’m a retired Canadian. For several months of the year I’ll be living in a small town in Morelos, where I may be the only native English speaker.

    I spoke to a local politician and volunteered my help with English homework, conversation, reading etc., expecting that perhaps 5-10 students might be interested. Because of my expectation, I didn’t think to say that probably 10 was the limit for reasonable interaction.

    Now I’m going to be faced with 30+ students ranging from Grade 7 to Grade 12. I expect to have 2 or 3 sessions per week of about 60-90 minutes.

    The school and the students themselves likely do not have much in the way of resources, so I’m looking for all the help I can get. I’m hoping to find stuff I can use here in your blog, and thank you in advance for making your materials available – ¡ gracias !

    Dear Teacher Ale.
    It´s good to find your blog at internet. Thank you for your interest of giving the different english stuff.
    At this time, I also ask for your “textbook audios” that you shared. The links are broken. Could you share them by email.
    I appreciate your help.
    Best regards.
    J S I.
