Simple present lessons are great for low-level students. In our featured lesson this week, Wendy introduces herself using simple present verbs, and she talks about her family and her favorite hobby, tennis.
All of the readings in our Library section can be done on paper or online, so teachers can choose how to present the reading and comprehension questions. Have your students do it on paper in class, or assign it for online homework and do the follow-up activities in class the next day. This lesson, Wendy, also includes a grammar exercise, spelling lesson, and twenty questions discussion activity.
