realia?

I'm writing an academic paper about teaching adults new vocabulary words with realia versus teaching with pictures.

Can anyone recommend any academic writing or studies done on the topic of realia?

Thanks for your help!

Difficulities encountered by Spanish-speakers?

Does anyone know of any source (book or website) that addresses the problems Spanish-speakers face when learning English? I know that "Learner English" is a good source, but I'd like to find something specifically for Spanish-speakers.

Thanks in advance for your help!

interesting

The reason why I will focus on present progressive to describe the present moment is because I teach beginning ESL students who would not necessarily be ready for the future tense.

However, these are interesting ideas. Maybe I will also mention them during my presentation. Thanks!

Activities for simple present & present progressive?

Simple Present Tense & Present Progressive...

I would like to contrast these two tenses for my beginning ESL class. Does anyone know of any activities, games, songs, lessons, websites, etc. that address these individually or even better as a comparison?

Thanks for any suggestions!

I use this website with my adult beginners: www.thebeehive.org

I believe it is written at a 7th grade reading level and provides useful information for those living in the United States and possibly elsewhere.
