Now that March is around the new school year has started, and with it has come a lot of new English Conversation Teachers. Hopefully you’ve seen our ESL Resources already so you can have an idea of what it’s like to teach English in Korea. The videos we made from our classes, though, make it seem as if the lessons require huge amounts of prep time. This isn’t always the case. So what we’ve done is uploaded another lesson plan, only this time it’s really easy to prepare. In fact, it should take you probably ten minutes to prepare this lesson, and it will have your students speaking in and listening to English for the entire class. Check the new video of Simon Teaching in a Korean Middle School, and if you like the lesson, download it:

Available in both Mac and PC format.

If you do decide to use it, please let us know how it works! Oh, and if you really liked this lesson, and it totally made your job and life easier, then – by all means – feel free to click this button here:

  1. This is going to make make my life so easy.

  2. Hey your ESL resourse link is broken, any chance of fixing it?

  3. They all speak it to some degree. Some of them are fluent, some of them are low level, but most of them are somewhere in between.

  4. That is a totally awesome variation. Thank you for sharing! Wow!

  5. That's actually quite funny. Ha!

  6. I generate all of the sheets myself. As for making sure how every question is represented on the sheet, I usually plan for about 30 answer in a class, so I'll add around 10 extra answers that won't get picked, and then randomly distribute them on the sheets. Does that make sense? I'm reading it myself and it only kinda makes sense to me…

    • Yes, we create all of the bingo sheets. But it's not as bad as it sounds! The first time it sucked a lot. Really, really sucked. Now, whenever there's a new bingo game to play, I simply write out the list of 40 words I want to include, then simply find and replace all of the words on the old bingo sheet with the new words I want to use. For example, on a Halloween sheet there are a bunch of instances of "Pumpkin" but for the Hobbies version I want to have the word "Singing" or something like that. Simply open the old sheet, CTRL+F, then find Pumpkin and replace with Singing. Do that for the whole sheet and it takes no more than five minutes, still half the time or regular prep work!

  7. I think a lot of my students are good at reading English as well. I was hoping they would feel more comfortable and have more fun speaking English instead.

  8. We left at 7! Too bad. We had a big day on Sunday so we had to go home and prepare for it. Bah! And I've used this with smaller classes as well and it's worked fine. Let me know how it works for you.

  9. Yeah, this school happens to be in a pretty wealth area. Lots of kids have iPhones, PSPs, and a bunch of cool stuff.

  10. Thanks! Glad you like it. Let me know how it goes!
