if you go to Genki English you'll find a whole lot of useful lessons, exercises and games.

What I've found that's even more useful is the CDs they're selling off there. You can get a set of six CDs with exercises, worksheets and basically everything you'll ever need if you're teaching elementary, junior high or handicapped kids.

The cost is absolutely ludicrous (about Y24 000), especially for us Sefricans right now who're trying to recoup our losses from the first month. But what a group of friends and I are doing is pitching in together, buying the CDs and copying them between us. And I did not just say that. *Jedi mind trick* ;)

That way we all get the CDs, but we only spend about Y5000 each.

How can you tell Jax is uber-bored today? :P

Here're some really useful ESL websites I've found:

http://www.nclrc.org/essentials - Some of the more theoretical aspects of language teaching.

http://www.eigozai.com - Most of this page is in Japanese, but I just ran it through Google translator, and most of it was understandable. Has lessons and sound clips.

http://www.usingenglish.com - Really, really useful page. Has a glossary of grammatical terms (how many of you know what an "inchoative verb" is?), quizzes, handouts, etc, etc

http://www.englishclub.com - One of the most useful sites I've found. Has loads of games and stuff for the kids to play.

http://www.eslpod.com - One for the kids, perhaps. I'm putting a link of it onto my notice board, in case any of them feel super-motivated or something (wishful thinking, I know!!). Downloadable podcasts of English lessons.

Hey guys!

Just created this community as a way for us to interact without having to send group emails to everyone. :)

So feel free to put up teaching tips, especially with stuff specific to SA, wesbites, or just post if you feel like chatting!

Hope livejournal is permitted by most peoples' firewalls at their schools. I haven't put any restrictions on who can join, or who can post, so just go for it. :D

Love,
Jax
