Carmen's Activities and Materials

The exchange of activities, experiences and materials is always enriching. This is why I've thought of making available some documents and experiences of my own.
Material to photocopy
Glossary with British and American English equivalent words. It is not comprehensive, of course, it's only a list of words of everyday use which might be of some help for people traveling to America, specially if they have studied British English (as it is the rule in Spain). They are translated into Spanish. Available in Word format.
A pattern for the English verbs. PowerPoint Presentations: They can be used in class to introduce a topic and provide oral practice. It is better to project them on a LCD or to show them on a TV screen so that they don't lose some of their properties (as animation). I intend to prepare teaching notes and put them on line, but I'm afraid they are not ready yet. If you use Internet Explorer 4 with the Plug-in for PowerPoint, you will view the presentations directly in the browser. If you want to download them, you have to right-click them and select "Save as..."
The family: practice of vocabulary and Saxon Genitive
Routines: Present Simple and Time adverbials
Hobbies: Likes and dislikes.
Be a little patient, and I'll add more material in a short time
