New blended materials for classroom use
Reallyenglish's "Practical English" blended offering has been expanded to give 48 lessons at each of the five levels in the course.
After studying the relevant Practical English lesson, students come into class to activate the language they have studied in a communicative lesson. Each 50-minute classroom lesson reviews and practices the language studied, leading to a final discussion or roleplay where the student uses the target language in a meaningful way. Teacher's notes steer the teacher through the lesson and provide ideas for extra communicative activities to extend the lesson for longer classes.
