All the best,

Just wanted to let my fellow teachers know that some of the ELT materials I've created can now be found on

The content I create ranges from conversation-based lessons to materials incorporating a slightly less conventional approach to grammar and vocabulary practice.

So if you’re looking for interesting topics and stimulating activities, here are the links to my recent lessons. They are completely free and highly interactive. We all love freebies, right? 🙂

Error correction: native speakers’ mistakes edition (B1) - grammar and vocabulary

Chain messages: bad luck or a big scam? (B2) - speaking

Informal contractions - AmE (B1) - pronunciation

And of course, there’s more to come so stay tuned!

Also if for some reason you still haven’t heard about Amazy be sure to check it out. A real game-changer for all language educators who teach online classes!
