New Worksheets & Updates - Released February 2016


'Are you online too much?' is great for building your students' reading, vocabulary and discussion skills.

Are your students glued to their phone? Could they survive away from Facebook? What's the downside of having everything online?

This worksheet has three short 'vox-pop' readings, with collocation building and discussion. Expressions studied include:

  • to be addicted to the internet
  • to send a message
  • to feel relieved
  • the older generation
  • ...and more

It's great for lower-intermediate level classes. For higher levels, look for our worksheet 'Internet Addiction'.


'The Silent Universe' looks at the subject of extra-terrestrial life - or rather the lack of it.

Is there intelligent alien life out there in space? If so, why haven't we found anything yet?

This worksheet looks at the 'Fermi Paradox' - the question of why there seems to be no life beyond this planet. Are we unique? Or is there some kind of Star Trek-like agreement not to contact us?

Whatever the reason, it makes a great topic for reading and discussion. Your students will learn expressions including:

  • a deafening silence
  • a near certainty
  • to draw a blank
  • to teem with life
  • and more.

With a lead-in, collocation exercises, gap-fill reading and discussion questions, there's lots for your students to sink their teeth into!

This worksheet is written for upper-intermediate and advanced level students.


Also released this month: our Valentine's reading, looking at the origins of Valentine's Day plus the different way its celebrated round the world. We've also made lots of updates to worksheets, including our third conditional worksheet Changes in Fortune and the advanced reading Pilotless Planes.

Worksheet Focus: Interviews and Resumes


Help your students clinch that perfect job!

Handouts Online has a great collection of worksheets on resumes and job interviews.

Looking for advice on improving a resume? Check out Perfecting Your Resume. It has tips for resume writing and an example which your students can correct. Your students can discuss resumes further in Robot Recruiters which looks at the growing phenomenon of companies using algorithms to create a candidate shortlist.

Your students will also need to sharpen their interview skills. Try (our appropriately named) The Job Interview. It has an extract from an interview for your students to read and analyse. There is extensive role-play, where we have prepared lots of common interview questions.

You'll find many other worksheets for interviews, including Advice for Interviews and After the Interview.

 


Communicative Activities


Our goal is always the same: helping your students attain confidence and fluency with the language.

They're great for providing extra practice of language points found in ESL textbooks.
