1000 Ideas and Activities for Language Teachers


The one thousand ideas and activities in this book are simple ideas and activity templates that can be easily adapted and used with almost any lesson topic. The ideas can be applied to a multitude of themes, regardless of whether or not the lessons are based on current events. While putting together this collection, the author has primarily kept in mind busy teachers who have little time for planning. He hopes the ideas and activities will be of use to novice and experienced teachers alike.


There are ideas for all stages of the lesson – warm ups, pre-, while- and post-reading or listening, and homework. The ideas and activities have been put in several broad categories, including talking about news, using headlines, discussions, using opinions, plans, using lists and quotes, role play ideas and task-based activities. There are also language analysis exercises, at the lexical level and in moving from text to speech. The two largest sections focus on using the central characters and the themes of news articles. There are also many activities that may be copied and used in class.
