MEC Trainer, Joanna Trzmielewska, writes:

iwise is a website packed with quotes by famous people. The quotes are organized according to various categories so you can easily find a quote and match it with the theme of your next lesson. The quotes said by a chosen person or on the chosen topic are presented in a slide show and can be downloaded in a powerpoint. The website is quite interactive as is updated with new quotes every couple of seconds as recent tweets and retweets are published.

How to use iwise with students:

Quotes could be a trigger for a lively class discussion, where students have to give their opinions about randomly selected quotes.

You can use them as a pre-activity.

You could do a gap fill activity when students have to guess what words were removed.

You could bring a bunch of quotes to the class and the students have to match the quotes with famous people.
