IELTS Listening: Sentence completion – Films and the brain




Hi all!

Please find an IELTS-style practice activity for the sentence completion task in the exam. Interestingly, this task uses video instead of audio for the task. It would, however, be preferable if you didn’t watch the video first and just listened.

Keep your eye out for more materials like this coming soon!

The video is taken from a YouTuber called BrainCraft. If you’re a member of youtube, I highly recommend that you subscribe to her channel. Some of the videos there are really fun and interesting.

Good luck!

Binomials in English worksheet

fishHi all!

Here’s a worksheet I made for a group of intermediate – upper intermediate students on the subject of binomials (words that are often linked by a conjunction and are often irreversible). I used this after a common binomial was in a reading text I was teaching.

You could also use this to generate a discussion about the binomials your students have in their language.

Anyway, enjoy!
