The Tune Into English Roadshow
This commenced in Sicily earlier this week – thank you to the teachers and students there for your enthusiasm and patience with the inclement weather for making the first performance such a success; you can see a snippet of the show here. I look forward to meeting you and your students this academic year!

November’s New Downloadable Worksheets

            Cheerleader – OMI
            One of this year’s biggest hits, and (of course) in this year’s Roadshow, this worksheet, written by Mena Bianco, Naples, works on tense reviews.

            Englishman In New York – Sting
            With immigration currently very much in the news, Maria Gulczynska from Ancona was inspired to write this worksheet featuring an immigration quiz.

            California Girls – The Beach Boys
            To celebrate the Roadshow’s 10th anniversary, each month we are publishing a worksheet for one song from each tour. This song was in the 2008-2009 show, and the worksheet features opposites, cardinal directions and American slang. 

Over 270 Downloadable worksheets now online (including November Rain by Guns N’ Roses) 

Speak Up Explains
A closer look at the video for November Rain will be published next week, as well as our possible theme tune, ABC by The Jackson 5.
