Andrew Articles and Stories

Fantastic material for storytelling in ELT. According to the author:

‘This site is mainly intended to act as a library of stories and articles which I would like people to use if they find them of interest.

By offering what I have made I hope to put a grain of sand in the balance set against all the selfishness and greed, violence and prejudice in this world of ours.’

‘Modern technology is bringing down dictatorships…lets use it to build up companionship as well!’

London Diary, July 18

During my staying in London it was impossible not to notice how the city is getting organized for the games and the efforts to keep people informed on how their daily lives will be affected by the Olympic games. There is a site specially designed to help people find out how their routine can be more easily adapted. See the campaign on http://www.getaheadofthegames.com/

The How to be British Collection

by  Martyn Alexander Ford, Peter Christopher Legon

Very funny way to describe British life.Drawing on their many years’ experience of teaching English as a Foreign Language the authors also offer the wider world a tongue-in-cheek guide on how to get around in English and at the same time make sense of our ‘funny ways’.  It’s a gentle brand of satire, and although there’s the occasional barbed arrow for bland food, fashion disasters or dubious standards of hygiene, the tone of The “How To Be British Collection” is more nostalgic than scornful, and the pet-loving, royal-watching, tea drinking characters that populate its pages are viewed with wry affection.

Shakespeare Death Scenes

A comedic compilation of a number of Shakespeare’s death scenes featured in Take Note Troupe’s Shakespeare 101: Passing The Bard. That would be a good idea visiting their site http://takenotetroupe.org/

William Shakespeare, without saying a word, gives a quick run through of all his plays in a very special audition. Fantastic.
