Activities For Short Stay Programs – Useful materials for teachers of English as a foreign language

Natalie Johnson helps ESL teachers by providing a  selection of  both educational and entertaining ideas for students of a foreign language  in her new book “70 ESL Activities For Short Stay Programs”.

It is not always easy to teach English as a foreign language, especially when your students come from many different nationalities, and you somehow need to get them all to the same level. The biggest challenge often is to find useful material that makes your lessons fun as well as educational for your students. Natalie Johnsons new book offers teachers of English as a foreign language plenty of ideas for kinesthetic games and skits, conversations, discussions and debates, group table work, grammar, writing and presentations.

The materials in the collection “70 ESL Activities For Short Stay Programs” by Natalie Johnson are aimed at teachers of ESL who are familiar with the short-stay program format. Unlike other books for ESL teachers, this new book contains materials from different difficulty levels. While some of the exercises are suitable for beginners, others are aimed at intermediate learners. This turns this book into a useful resource for ESL teachers who have to deal with a mix of students in their classes and who sometimes struggle to find activities that can be used in their mixed classes without excluding part of the class.
