Greetings all! Does anyone know where to get any good resources

Has anyone used the 'Where's the hell is Matt?' videos in their classroom? They look fantastic. I'm going to try one out this coming week.

I am pleased to be here as EPIK is responsible for my getting a public school job in Korea. I miss the great events they hold, but many co-teachers neglect the program due to personal reasons. For the foreigner, the EPIK program is invaluable and much needed. I wish they would invite me to another event. It's been seven months since I heard anything about the program that gave me a fair deal. Jeff/Chungnam area

Resources: I'll try to make a list of things I have used. One thing I have fallen back on from time to time is, but you must preview evey lesson carefully, as I found material that was not suitable, but I also found in the 100 page book of grammar a few helpful items that were useful. I try to take existing items from the internet, like news and rewrite for my classes. I have been doing a lot of TPR in the last two months and am very pleased, though the added fun in the class-room may be disturbing to some teachers. Recently, I assigned all the "trouble" students to the front of the class room, and with a toy microphone, we staged a mini show, called "Odi gaseo?", or Where are you going. With the scripts printed for them in their laps, and the smar guys doing the interviews, it worked great and there were many laughs. My poorest students got to practice perfect English without any worries. Pictures later.

Hi all,

If anybody has students who would like extra tutoring from a native speaker, but from their own homes, point them towards After returning to Canada from South Korea and EPIK, I was hired by this company, but, as yet, I have no students! The student site, in Korean, is

HI! I have ben asked to write the syllabus for Grade 1 and 2 Elementary students and am looking for resources to save me reinventing the wheel! :) Any suggestions?

Comment by ddeubel on March 12, 2009 at 7:32am

Usually the front of any textbook includes a syllabus. Usually in a chart form with chapters in themes and a list of what skills/activities/abilities are covered.

You can also find the Elementary school lesson plans/teacher's guides here. These might help.

Think it through with an outline of the basic content and under each heading, 2/3/4 expectations in terms of functional language (what the students are expected to be able to do/produce).

Also, here in any group, you can send a message to all members. That sometimes for a group is the best way to get help!

Hope this helps some..

Hi to all,
My girlfriend and I have been EPIK teachers for 6 months. We've put a lot of ESL materials including middle school/elementary school lesson plans.

Feel free to pop over and use our stuff.
