In this post, I am sharing my favourite YouTube channels which I use during lessons with adult students. You might find them appropriate for older and more mature teenagers as well. The only prerequisite is for both you and your students to be curious, open-minded and eager to learn new things about the world. Take a look at my list.
In this post, I am sharing two activities which help practice forming nouns ending in -ence and -ance suffixes. They are suitable for levels B2 and higher especially for exam course (Cambridge First and Advanced).
This year I am teaching a C1 course to a group of teens. Our coursebook is packed with idiomatic expressions (and phrasal verbs!) which pose a considerable challenge for my students who are very fluent and fairly accurate yet shy away from any figurative language. Here are 3 ideas for revision games I have been using to help them consolidate their knowledge of various idioms.
Other than breaking the ice, first lessons are very often used to talk with the students about the course rules, requirements and expectations both students and we might have regarding the classes. If your courses are only beginning now (like mine!) these three ideas might help you talk about rules and expectations in a more rewarding and language-rich way than simply distributing a handout.
This was my go-to icebreaker activity this summer when I spent four weeks working with teens aged 14-17. It works best with groups but might also be used during 1-1 lessons with teens and adults.

Here is an activity I tried a couple of times with my teenage students. I decided to combine the test-teach-test approach with a fairly new feature of Quizlet which is Quizlet live. My students played a vital role in shaping this activity and so did my friend, Łukasz Knap who helped work out the technical kinks.
This speaking activity is perfect for bigger groups and serves as both speaking practice and revision. The version below was designed with C1 students in mind but you can adapt it to any level and topic.
What activities can we use in order to help our students revise and consolidate their knowledge of various phrasal verbs? Keep reading to discover my 5 activity ideas.
