Hi everyone! This week I'm brushing up present simple, present continuous and future with my students and I really found good to listen to Mika's new hit, "Tomorrow". I gave my students as homework the task of dividing a page of their notebook into two colums: on their left they have to pin present simple verbs down, on their right one, all the other tenses. I 'm quite positive that they are looking forward to being tested and getting a good mark for it!
Grammar focus on: present simple
Activity: put the verbs given between brackets into the correct order

Right from one of the biggest summer hits of this 2019 today I'm going to work on a very simple and easy to understand song, "Heaven" by Avicii, which I'm sure my students will appreciate! What they can't figure out is that this song was inspired to the dear departed dee-jay by Dante Alighieri's "Commmedia"!
Grammar focus on: preposition, conjunctions and adverbs
Today's song, "Kids" by OneRepublic, is quite popular all around the world and I guess it could be really useful in case you're going to revise more than one past tense, as used to/would, the past continuous, etc., but it could be easily adapted to learn some phrasal verbs as well. Level: intermediate Grammar focus on: revision of past tenses Activity:learn and conjugate the verbs given between brackets Kids
After a long break, here I am again at the same time as school is opening once again after summer holidays here in Italy. The first of a series of worksheets I'm going to post as a supply for my new school year is "Birds", outcome of an international collaboration between the Us bands "Imagine Dragons" and the excellent Italian artist Elisa, a great way to revise past tenses, such as in this case present simple, future and present continuous. Level:pre-intermediate Grammar focus on: present simple, will, present continuous for future plans Activity: listen and conjugate the verbs given between brackets Birds
On a rapid search for a song on present simple and present continuous, I ran into "Treat You Better" by Shawn Mendes and I tested a chunk of it to teach present continuous to one of my pre-.intermediate classes and it worked so well, that students didn't even perceive the bell ringing! Grammar level: pre-intermediate Focus on: present simple/present continuous Activity: fill in the song with the verb given between brackets at the right form Treat You Better
