Do you know the feeling?

Do you know the feeling?

You know that awkward feeling of tension when you have a student who builds a thick wall of silence or feeds you minimal responses? Been there, done that, right?

Determined to never let teachers feel that way again, we tend to pick topics related to the latest buzz because it’s easier to get students talking about the matters they probably discuss in their mother tongue, too.

Living in the 21st century, we believe it’s high time for teachers to start incorporating video materials into their classes. Students find them entertaining and educational, and let’s admit it, it’s an excellent opportunity for teachers to give their vocal cords some rest. Moreover, they always provide you with something to discuss. Therefore, all our lesson plans are based on captivating videos, with which students can get the feeling of real-life conversation and native-like speech.

We also asked ourselves: why should young learners have all the fun? With this question in mind, we designed interactive activities such as picking cards, guessing words based on clues, or matching. Even the well-known exercises, such as filling in the gaps or correcting the mistakes, were given a more authentic feel.   

Most lesson materials teachers generally use are designed with lesson goals in mind. In english4tutors, we made the students’ positive experience of their learning journey our top priority while allowing teachers to let their hair down, feel inspired, and enjoy their job like they’re just back from a well-deserved vacation.

Stay with us and see what’s cooking next!
