This has just been posted at the website, December 12. I'm hoping you may find a few days left before winter break to use it. There are 18 songs in the public domain, printed in 24-point type, one song to a page, with illustrations and word help, just the way English language learners need it. Feel free to download and reproduce the Holiday Songbook for your classes.

Get ready to sing! I've prepared some holiday songs, added a few illustrations by Dave Nicholson, and added that oh-so-needed Word Help at the bottom of each page.

The large 24-point type suitable for new readers/singers of English will make your holidays brighter.

Or sing them all and justify them as "American culture" that newcomers have a right to know.

I'd love feedback on the Cloze Tests and the Which-word-does-not-belong tests I've been posting at the website. By November 5, I should have the next set: Quizzes for the November issue of Easy English NEWS on the website. The tests are based on articles in the newspaper, but can be used by any student even without reading the paper. Check back at the website in two weeks for the November tests. These are free for you to use and make life easier in the classroom.

Cloze exercises based on the current October issue of Easy English NEWS, plus "Which word doesn't belong?" based on vocabulary from the same. Check back at the website in two weeks for the October tests.

Welcome back to school! I hope you had some time off and refreshed yourself for the coming onslaught of paper work, pendulum swings, new buzzwords, budget cuts, and assorted inconveniences in this otherwise great job of imparting communication skills to our newcomers.
