I’ve been teaching English here in China since September 2009. I spent two years at a high school and then moved to a university where I’ve taught Spoken English, American Literature, American Society & Culture, Culture of English-Speaking Countries, business English (General), Spoken Business English, and English for Non-Major Students. In the course of it all, I’ve developed some games, song worksheets, and other materials for classroom use. I’ll be posting these resources below for download in their PDF formats. Just click on the links and a download option should open. If you need any of the materials in a different format of have any issues with the downloads, please let me know and I’ll do my best to get you what you need!

I have a lot of materials to add, so this will be a slow work in progress…

Songs

Here are song sheets for some songs that have worked well in my classes. Any Chinese translations for songs have been taken from Chinese websites and have not been personally checked by me. I prefer to teach without translations, but with some lower groups of students they’ve been useful to help provide the context for new words studied in the song.
