About

"So I guess this is where I'm supposed to introduce myself. I'm a Canadian male teaching ESL in Seoul, Republic of Korea. This will be my second stint teaching ESL, only this time I'll be teaching at a High School, using my actual teaching experience to use. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me - no question's too small. Take care, and enjoy the ride."

  • For all those Teachers out there....

    For all of you who read this blog and are teachers, I have a belated Christmas gift for you, especially those of you lucky enough to have computers and projectors in your classroom.
    For those of you who have ever used Jeopardy in your classroom, you know how it can be a great group exercise (read:time killer). However, without someone doing the prep-work, Jeopardy can be a bit of a hassle to set-up. Sure, its easy to write stuff on the board - I digress. I'll stop explaining, and just show you.
    This board is entirely modifiable, and it even has the back/forward/menu buttons included, and you can just about add any slide you wish - from "What are they doing" to "Change the grammar" type questions.
    Now, I cannot just upload this powerpoint slide as a file with blogger - I don't have the patience to figure that out. However, if you would like a copy of the full powerpoint, you have two options. You can either post a comment, and I will send you the file via e-mail. Or, if you want, you can head over to ESL-Resources and find all sorts of cool time killers that are quite useful. From mazes that will beat any from Discovery Zone to Tongue Twisters, they have lots of helpful stuff.
    Enjoy. More real news to come sometime in the not-to-distant future.
    God bless all, and enjoy the family time. If you have family/friends living in foreign lands, try to remember them. The Holiday season is really hard for those teaching overseas/working in the military.
    till later,
    me
