1. Human Emotions
The concept of universal human emotions is a fascinating subject for language mavens.
I've put together the ultimate resource (but still a work in progress), showing these emotions. Can your students identify them? Can they state the equivalent in their L1?

2. The Olympics
They are almost here and I bet your students are psyched! We've updated all our Olympic materials, including new video lessons and ppts. Check them out and maybe add some of your own.

3. EnglishCentral Free 2 Month Summer Trial
EnglishCentral is used by 1,000s of the leading universities and schools around the world. ELS, OpenEnglish, ASU to mention a few. It's a full platform to assign content, manage students, get reports. Summer is the perfect time for you to try out the full Premium product.
I've designed it with the teacher and learning in mind. Not some mindless translation, memorization, grammar boring thing run by tech people. It's about teachers and supporting teachers.

4. Gif Lingua
Hundreds of new books this month! Too many to mention.
I really believe in the power of extensive reading. Why not make one school account, share with all your students. They log in and read. How much can you read. Check it out in our rankings.
I'll be announcing a readathon for July and August and the top school accounts will win free ipads! Stay tuned. But check it out first.

I made this as one of our Olympic lessons. It's based on the movie trailer and your students will enjoy the activities.
