Your English 45 Poem: A Reason For Living

This is the recording of a poem I wrote to encourage people to live peacefully together and share the great resources of our planet. There is both a continuous reading and a listen & repeat part to help you progress. I have seen students truly improve their speaking skills by learning poems by heart. The rhymes make it easier for learners to memorize the lines. As an activity I ask students to learn a poem of their choice, either one of mine or one from the Internet that has rhymes. In class the students recite to different partners or to the teacher in a short one on one session.

This poem is in fact my philosophy of life—in a few lines. So I am including the transcript in PDF below.

The transcript in Doc} and the written/oral exercises for pair work in DOC format} are to be found in both the DVD and the downloadable versions of QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book}. They are part of the 1,500 files available in this digital book. The script and exercises in DOC format is also to be found in the pack of "Your English" scripts available in the store for a minimal fee.

Kind regards,
