The following lessons have been used by me over the last 10 years. They are
specifically designed for times when you need the class to be kept busy with
minimum teacher supervision.

Each lesson is either a printout for each student to complete silently, or pair
work with each student completing their half of the printout.
Usually student A & B or 1 & 2.

Crosswords are done in the form of...

1) Excuse me, what is number...........down?

2) What is number ....................across?
(hint only, never saying the actual word)


Pair work / Information Exchange is done in the form of..

Excuse me, what is the next word please?

(hint only, never saying the actual word)

The lessons can be adjusted for level. Lower levels are allowed more time
and can use a dictionary. Higher levels are given less time and no dictionary
is allowed. For the highest levels more than one of these lessons may be
required per class.

I apologize for the quality of some lessons, but I had to take them form
photocopies. That is why this e-Book of lessons is free. Feel free to repair
them as best you can.

Hand out these lessons, relax and watch the students quietly do the close
exercises (fill in the blanks) or have fun while they do the information

Enjoy! ………Ian
