October 2017 – The Tune Into English Roadshow – now ready to tour!

Dear Teacher,

I hope you have eased gently into the new school year, in time for World Teacher’s Day on October 5th.


The Tune Into English Roadshow

The 2017-2018 Tune Into English Roadshow was presented in Naples on the 29th of September – thank you to St. Peter’s ELC for the invitation. The tour’s Autumn schedule is filling up, and I would be delighted to visit your school.

October’s New Downloadable Worksheets

Look What You Made Me Do – Taylor Swift
The opening song of this year’s Tune Into English Roadshow, this vocabulary worksheet was written by regular contributor Mena Bianco from Naples.

Lullaby – The Cure
It’s almost Hallowe’en! This song is about the singer’s recurring nightmare and the worksheet, submitted by Laura Piermartiri, Grottammare (AP), looks at related vocabulary. Other online worksheets for Hallowe’en are Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Skeleton Song by Kate Nash.
