Real Life Elementary Episode 1.

In this episode, we are introduced to the Benton family. They are getting ready to go on holiday to Cornwall. We see them get in the car, check they have got everything and then head off to Cornwall. When they get there, they set up their tents at the campsite and we learn that the children, Mark and Anna, are not sharing a tent with their parents, Sally and John. Finally, while Mark and Anna are unpacking, Dave, the surfing instructor, comes over and introduces himself, much to Anna’s delight and Mark’s amusement.

Background information:

Stonehenge is a prehistoric set of large standing stones in the south-west of England. It is thought the stones were erected between 2500 and 3000 years BC. There are many theories on the purpose of Stonehenge but no one theory has ever been proved. Theories include it being a type of temple or place of healing. There is also no explanation about how the stones were erected.

New English File/ Beginner.

New English File/ Beginner.

Description:

This series with all of it’s resource materials is the best out there as far as I (with my 17 years of English teaching experience) can see. It is well-designed and you can just feel that it’s been thoroughly tested in action. The speed of the course is just fine as long as the students had the appropriate level to begin with (not too low). The workbook is excellent homework material for students. If the students have the appropriate level, if they study and actually attend your classes and if they are punctual, they can keep up with the classes just fine. As always the onus is on the students to actually do their homework.

The down side to this workbook plus “MultiRom” is that when you receive it, you may not actually know how to make it work. It’s supposed to work in your CD player as a CD and in your computer as a PC-program, but mine didn’t in both Windows Vista and XP and I’m an advanced user. If you have a problem and you need assistance from their technical support department, good luck. I’ve called every support number available and every single one of them passed the buck through to some answering machine. Their post-purchase service is hell.
