About the Big Activity Book -
"This is the fourth compilation of worksheets and activities from the popular English Banana.com website. The aim this time is to engage learners from about Level 1 (Intermediate) upwards in active English lessons. This extensive new collection provides a varied and interesting set of resources for practising a range of English language skills, from grammar to reading, and vocabulary building to developing research skills.
"It's divided into subject areas and there is a comprehensive answer section, which also gives notes for how to use the material. We have included two special sections towards the back of the book. The first is a collection of classroom games that have been tried and tested and really work. Some may be familiar while others are totally original. In publishing descriptions of these games and activities we are not in any way laying claim to having invented them. Our only aim is to disseminate ideas that work well at a range of levels and always seem to get a great response from learners.
"The second special section is for reference and lists rhyming words, using the vowels and diphthongs from the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). These pages provide support for learners as they come to identify spelling patterns and match together words with the sounds of English. However you use the book, we hope that you'll enjoy learning English and come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of this fabulous language – which can be so entirely frustrating at times and so difficult to learn!
"Finally, I must say a big thank you to all my learners who have been testing and trialling the material that appears in this book. It's been great working with all of you. Thanks for showing me what you liked and didn't like."
