Click on the links below to see Simone’s ideas for using MEC for distance learning:

  1. A downloadable PDF of Simone’s clinic presentation: MEC for distance learning.ppt (3.87 MB)
  1. Simone’s example of a study guide for low level students. This covers the Present Simple and telling the time using MEC Listening and Vocabulary Activities, plus extra MEC Grammar Reference Units and Listening Activities for further practice: STUDY GUIDE.doc (490.5 KB) 
  1. Simone’s example of a discussion guide for advanced level students. This uses a MEC News Item and a MEC listening activity: CAMPUS DISCUSSION GUIDE.doc (30.5 KB)

By using online resources alongside her own worksheets Simone has created some really useful examples of distance learning lessons with MEC. You are very welcome to download these and adapt them for your own students.

The clinic participants were:

Olga Nikulina – Talisman, Russia

Natalya Sorokina – Talisman, Russia

Anna Sheshenina – Talisman, Russia

Ekaterina Savitcheva – Talisman, Russia

  • Thank you very much for the clinic devoted to distance learning. Simone’s presentation was full of useful ideas (eg developing speaking skills via telephone communication) and helpful hints. It was a real pleasure to listen to such a motivated teacher.
    I am sure that MEC clinics are extremely useful for Teachers who work with MEC resources as they give a chance to share ideas and experiences.
