Reading extensively inside and outside classrooms helps to improve the learners’ reading skills.When preparing a lesson plan, teachers need to think that learners want various skills at different ages and competency levels. Teachers should use learner-related contexts whenever possible, as this will help them motivate students to read.  Some of your learners have complained that reading is boring and they do not want to read the texts you have given them – what should you do? Choose the same types of texts that learners enjoy reading outside the classroom and design motivating pre-reading  and post-reading tasks to go with them. They would probably enjoy doing the reading task as they are acquainted with it already. After relieving their boredom, you could introduce academic reading comrehension, poetry or prose.

Basically reading can be of two types: extensive and intensive,  and the idea is to impart some skills needed for both. Teaching reading skills could be easy when taught with nuances and strategies with continuous practice. Reading skills become boring for many when they are not given the correct strategies.  In a classroom structure, students  use reading for different purposes; it may be instructions, to do lists, course books, blogs, websites, newspapers and magazines. Here the question is how to develop their reading skill in the above structure? There are six strategies to be taught to the students for enhancing their reading capabilities in different contexts.The below six techniques are step by step procedures essential for effective reading



  • To give a short presentation about how the student uses the English language
  • To be more aware of endangered languages and the impact of losing them
  • To use idioms containing the word "time" - the most frequently used noun in English
  • To write a narrative about what students do in their 'spare time'


English is GREAT
This lesson is about the English language and other languages (including endangered languages) that the students may know. It develops speaking skills and the use of idiomatic language and uses the students’ own experiences and opinions as the basis of all discussions and written work

Developing writing skills: a news report
During this lesson students will go through the process of developing ideas and collecting and organising information. They will then use the information to create the first draft of an imaginary news article. They will then focus on some key areas of good writing and try to redraft their articles with these in mind. A variety of follow up tasks are offered after the main plan

This lesson was devised to mark Mindfulness Day, held on September 12th. However, it could be used at any time of year as this is not specifically mentioned. The lesson begins by looking at a definition of mindfulness and finding out what students already know. They then read a text about mindfulness, before focusing on vocabulary and grammar from the text. Finally, they carry out a mindfulness activity themselves and discuss the experience. The text used in the student worksheet for this lesson is available with interactive exercises for learners on our LearnEnglish website at

Using stories in the classroom
This lesson is aimed at lower intermediate students. It could be adapted for use with higher and lower levels. This particular lesson uses an adapted version of ‘The Emperor's new clothes' by Hans Christian Andersen, but other stories can be used in the same way.
