Summer school lessons: even more idioms! Are you all ears? I'm not pulling your leg 馃槄

Updated: Jul 12, 2019


I am still at my lovely summer camp. I will be here for another 5 weeks so there are probably a couple more post coming your way. Somehow this year I am all about vocab lessons, which is unlike me cause I always base my lessons around a grammar point. Not this time ... again 馃槤

So I am still doing idioms. Why, you ask? Because it is really difficult to plan lessons on a summer camp. You don't know the kids, you have no idea what they're studying at school; they're from many different countries; and you have a week to teach them something new. Idioms are always a safe choice. They're not usually covered at schools and even if they are it doesn't happen a lot, especially with younger learners. So idioms it is! This time round, I gibe you idioms connected with body parts.

Like with the previous lesson, I based the materials on "Instant Lessons Advanced" from Penguin English. This is what we get in the book:


And this is how I jazzed it up 馃槄
