This is pretty big, and probably bigger than could be done in one class. I'm wondering if it should be carved up into separate sections?--Bob M 05:57, 7 December 2012 (CST)

It all depends on the level of the group. I've done it with high-level groups and there's no prob. to get through it all. I see these questions sheets as somewhere to pick 'n' choose from and I reckon each teacher pre-selects the questions to adapt to times and levels. If you need just an intro or a grand finale to a more general lesson on the subject, you'd extract the most pertinent questions. BIt like course books... be honest - how often have you skipped those stupid exercises? --Technopat 04:11, 10 December 2012 (CST)
OK, lets leave it then. You use course books?--Bob M 13:25, 10 December 2012 (CST)
Last time I used one was in 1988, when I last worked for a language school. Ain't looked back since! :) --Technopat 10:33, 11 December 2012 (CST)

Have you heard about Kwanzaa?

I'm really not sure about this question. I'm sure most students will simply answer "no" and then it won't generate much more conversation.--Bob M (talk) 17:29, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

But then an American teacher could explain what Kwanzaa is. See also [1]. Ghoti (talk) 15:54, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps. But the site is international. I expect that many teachers simply print off the questions and distribute them. If they first need to investigate the meanies of obscure words and festivals then the questions become less useful. --Bob M (talk) 19:50, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
I changed the question, but maybe this particular controversy is too controversial at a time we should be jolly. Ghoti (talk) 19:56, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
No, It's OK. I'd say that teachers can chose whether to include the controversy section or not. I like to see some more edgy stuff for teachers who want it.--Bob M (talk) 20:22, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
