Over the past year and a half I’ve built up a good stock of EFL lessons that I’ve designed myself from scratch, several of which I’m particularly proud of.  Rather than posting the lessons themselves, I thought it would be useful to start recording the design and development processes of future lessons, to see if any patterns emerge in the way I build them, try them out on students and make changes.

developAs well as the sense of pride and achievement I feel when one of my lessons is successful, I enjoy the creative process of designing my own materials.  It can be rather time consuming, however, so I wonder whether in recording the development process I’ll find ways to work more economically, without sacrificing the quality of the lesson’s content.


The two main questions I ask myself when I’m trying out a new lesson are:

Does it achieve it’s aims?

Is it enjoyable for the student/s?
