choose interesting materials
We’ve talked about using pictures to motivate learners, but what other kinds of materials are there to use in class?

Well, there are lots of ready-made materials available for you from different websites. Look at the materials below and choose one that you think would be good to use. Share your ideas in the comments section saying which materials you would like to use and why.

To open a link in a new tab, hold down ‘Ctrl’ (or ‘Command’ on a Mac) when you click it.

Think about the kind of learners you want to teach, eg adults, young learners, business people, and choose the materials you think would be good for that group. If you aren’t sure about who you might teach, just pick something that you think looks fun!
