Here’s a short video project made after a series of English lessons on practical grammar. Its aim was to illustrate the use of some present and past tenses. The project was participated by 2nd form students of Wojciech Korfanty High School in Jastrzębie-Zdrój, Poland.

We hope you’ll enjoy the video. Have fun watching!

‘English Cafe’ class at McDonalds 3 November 2013

“Sir, there’s a special offer for free coffee at McDonald’s. Why don’t we go and have a class over a nice cup of coffee?” said Justyna after I had asked what else we could do to make our ‘English cafe’ classes even more fun.

‘English cafe’ classes are those conversation lessons where nobody can speak a single word in Polish. I usually prepare handouts with Q&A activities and discussion topics but, generally, you can speak freely about anything and to anyone, provided you’re speaking English. And you can have something to drink – after all it’s supposed to be a cafe.

Justyna’s suggestion was excellent and so we went out of school on Tuesday morning and headed for McDonald’s. The weather was excellent and so were the students’ moods. On the spot I gave them handouts with questions concerning ‘personality’ and ‘change’ – to be discussed over free coffee.

Some students documented the field trip with their smartphones or tablets, using the Animoto application which I’d asked them to install. I hope you will enjoy the video made by Krzysiek Gołębiowski as much as we all enjoyed our ‘English Cafe’ class at McDonalds!

Dear Diary – a new Think English ebook 2 June 2013

This collection includes 4 diary entries written by 1a LO, 1b LO and 1c LO students at Wojciech Korfanty High School in Jastrzębie-Zdrój, Poland, for the all-Poland writing contest “Day by Day” organized by Glossa – School of Foreign Languages, based in Cracow.

Each of these entries is totally different in style and content, which makes them unique and worth reading. “A Soldier’s Daughter” by Oliwia Penkala is a story full of intense emotion and feeling that will undoubtedly move and thrill the reader. “Heading for California” by Justyna Kulesza is rich in vocabulary that adds a spark of humour to this teenage romantic journey across the ocean. “An Explorer from Space” by Aleksandra Lasia is a story of yet another journey – different both in distance travelled and purpose – and the narrator has a truly unearthly flair for spotting the strangest human behaviours and habits. “Into the Dreamland” by Małgorzata Skorupa rivets the reader’s attention and interest from the very first paragraph, taking you into a land of dreams, fairies and magic where adventure awaits.

I hope you will enjoy reading these stories as much as the authors enjoyed writing them.
