  1. This is fantastic! I have been wnnitag something to use with this/that/these/those, and songs that I’ve found have been too hard for my Level 1 Grammar students. I’ve been using your blog for the last 3 months now with my Grammar classes. I teach ESL to international students at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR, USA. The students really respond to the audios, and it shifts the energy in the classroom. Plus, it gives them a chance to hear authentic English conversations that are scaffolded perfectly.Thank you so much for this amazing site. I am so impressed with the organization of the site and the worksheets that you include with the links. Your work has contributed to make my classes much more interesting and interactive. Thank you!!!!!!
