Extra Activities for Oxford’s American English File 2nd Edition

Hello, dear English teachers!

I’d like to share the entire planning I did for an immersion course in January this year. The course was given to 4 groups at the language center of UniEvangélica. I designed the activity plans to substitute or complement at least one activity in every lesson, and also integrated some project-based learning concepts. Unfortunately, I do not have all the units of each book (just the second half, I’m afraid) and Book 3 planned because of the groups that were formed on that particular occasion. The good news is that I will have the planning for the other units and books by the end of this year, and, naturally, I’ll share it with you.

As you’ll realize while going through my suggestions, this planning took me a lot of time and effort, and I’d really appreciate it if you could give me some feedback here and help me promote my blog. My objective is to reach many teachers out there who may not have access to professional development or materials and insights in order to help them and, consequently, help their students. Your comments will certainly be of great help to me, and I’ll be able to make even better lesson plans as well as share them with you in the future. Here’s my last lesson plan about speaking languages in public.

Also, keep in mind that these activities are meant to take students a little away from the book for some minutes and still work with the language they’re supposed to. You can always go back to the book when needed. As a matter of fact, books are highly adaptable when we consider students’ strengths, weaknesses, interests, and needs. You should definitely read my post about the Maintain-Alter-Discard (MAD) Principles here.

And here’s the link to a Google Drive  with the Teacher’s notes and the materials you’ll need to use in class. One or two activities might be missing because I photocopied and left them in the course I taught. If you think they’re absolutely necessary for you to teach your students, please let me know and I’ll do my best to find a way to send them to you through my blog.


Have a great weekend!
