September 2011 Monthly Teacher's Guide

Sep 05, 2011 - 0 comments

Welcome back to a new school year. Welcome to all our new subscribers. There are many types of teacher support that come with your subscription: Word Help, and Let’s Talk About It are directly in the pages of Easy English NEWS. This monthly guide gives background information, objectives and procedures for the major articles, plus three reproducible quizzes. In addition, we offer a FREE 24- page booklet, “How to Use Easy English NEWS in your ESL classroom.” You can print it out at our website. We can send you a printed copy for $3 to cover handling and postage. The “How to” booklet will make your life easier with tips for using the various types of articles with different ESL levels. It also features nine reproducible generic reviews and a selfevaluation page for students.

Each month, my website will have six cloze exercises (fill in the blank) based on the current month’s articles, and a “which word doesn’t belong” exercise. These are also free and will show up on the website by the fifth of the month. Let me know what’s missing. (I want to become irreplaceable!)

We are gradually adjusting to our new office in Virginia Beach, and new staff and some new procedures. While customer service will be in Virginia, the printing and packing will still be done by in New Jersey.

People often ask me, “How do you know what to write?” And I say, “It’s simple: I ask what readers want to read.” Thank you if you have sent in your suggestions for next year. Don’t forget to check our website for cloze exercises and additional quizzes for June, posted by or about the 5th of the month.

If your program ends in May, and you won’t see your students again, encourage them to subscribe to Easy English NEWS for home delivery, or ask for it at their local library.


April 2011 Monthly Teacher's Guide

Apr 04, 2011 - 0 comments

It was a wild wild month. We are in the process of moving our office to Virginia Beach where I’ll be able to manage business better, closer to home. That move will be complete in Mid April. Tina was on vacation the first week of March, so I drove up to NJ to answer the phones and watch the store. Our circulation manager, Fumie went to Japan as her father had passed away after a long illness. Movers came to take the book stock from NJ to VA, and each of the 164 boxes of books needed color coordinating so movers would know exactly where to put things once they got to Virginia.
