Spicing up my Lessons: Talking about Holidays in a more Visual Way.

Spark Adobe is my new addiction. I’m hooked on it, and I am not ashamed to admit it.

It’s soooo easy to use, and the result is amazing. Only last week, I was running a workshop, and I was behind schedule, but I just couldn’t leave without showing the bunch of dedicated teachers attending a Saturday workshop, a glimpse of how Spark Adobe could be used in the classroom. So, in five minutes, I briefly explained how to use it. After thanking the teachers for their attention, a Portuguese teacher came up to me and asked me to have a look at what he had created for his next class. Pity I can’t share it with you, but I can assure you that his students are going to be very pleased this Monday.

Embedded below, you’ll see the speaking/listening activity I have designed for my B2 students on the topic of Travelling, created with the Page feature. And make sure you don’t forget to try the Video option, with lots of potential for language learners.

By the way, have I mentioned that it’s free?

Hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to visit the three sections on the blog dedicated to speaking activities

  1. Hi Holly!
    The links in this post are all working. Which oneis not working for you?

  2. Hi Cristina, the links are not working for me either.But otherwise, brilliant resource.

  3. Hi ALicia, I have double-checked the 3 links you mentioned and they are working fine. Could it be a problem at your end?

  4. Your blog is mesmerizing. I’d like to thank you wholeheartedly for your teaching ideas. Absolutely brilliant!

    In case it helps, the three links at the end of the page fail to open (discussion qs, pic description, grammar and vocab conversation qs).
