Smart Choice - Culturally Specific Content

Smart Choice - Culturally Specific Content.


I'm not a big one for giving publishers promotion - not because I don't believe in textbooks yadda yadda... rather because I think that "profit" should stay away from those things directly concerned with learning and education. However, I understand realities and "good things" when I see them , so I'd like to suggest readers check out Oxford Univ. Press's "Smart Choice" - free materials (yes, free - don't know for how long so I've collected some for us...).

Culturally Specific Topics and content are so important to learners (see my presentation on this topic). Smart Choice offers some great photos (which you can also find  here in ppt on EFL Classroom  ). Really super stuff for contextualizing presentation of vocabulary topics. Further, they offer a few free lessons specific to many countries. Go here to check them out and download (I'll be saving them here on EFL Classroom for future reference). They are wonderful! Very communicative in orientation and approach and students can use the flashcards/cards / pictures to play the well described activities and games. There are 4 worksheets - 1 for each level. See the ones attached for Korea.

So my hats off to Oxford - at least this once! Great to see a publisher producing such wonderful CSC - Culturally Specific Content!!!!!
