About the Blog

We’ve both been teaching advanced learners and sharing material with each other for quite a while now. We’ve also been inspired by the variety and quality of ELT blogs out there, and this blog is our contribution to the blogosphere.

The idea is to provide lesson plans to go for teachers of advanced learners ( C1 and C2 ). The lessons will focus on helping learners to improve their listening and speaking skills, and we hope, at the same time, that these resources are stimulating, fun, and effective.

Everything that appears here has been tried, tested and tweaked in the classroom.

We hope you enjoy it.

    Great blog, the material is so refreshing and relevant. Do you ever do lesson plans for intermediate learners? Some of the videos will be slightly too difficult for my class. Or even recommend another blog similar to yours? Thanks for your help.

  13. Hi guys,
    Great site, discovered via Keiran Donaghy at Film English. I’ve posted a link to it on my own new, and growing, blog about using audio-visual media (and particularly film) in the EFL classroom. Check it out.
