Yay! Today Only 50% off Clipart Sale

Banner by RebeccaB Designs
Ooh I love a sale and this one is super special. A group of TPT clipartists have gotten together and will be offering 1 of their clipart sets for 50% (yes, HALF PRICE!) for one day only. Today is that day: 16th September 2016.

All you need to do is login to TeachersPayTeachers and search #SeptTPTClipLove - all the participating clipartists' sets will appear.

As you might be aware I create clipart mainly for older students and so I thought I would put one of my popular science sets up for 50% off. So today only you could buy my Contraception Clipart Set for just $3.75!

Learning English as a Second Language

This post has been prompted after I have read articles and comments from teachers regarding the best way to teach students learning English as a Second Language (ESL) also known as, English as Foreign Language (EFL) in some countries. For the purposes of this discussion I will be using the Australian term, ESL.

Firstly, I should state my background about this. I am hopeless at learning second languages. I have a fairly strong grip on English as my first language but while I did well learning Japanese when I was in primary school (grade 6 and 7) and into high school (grade 8) I did not retain much at all. I feel this is probably due to a couple of important factors.
