ABOUT THIS SERIES: Lessons in this series are designed to save you time! My 21st Century Language Learning is a series that offers high-quality, pre-planned learning materials. Whenever possible, I create everything you see myself, including the multimedia components. I’m passionate about creating resources that are unique and engaging, with a critical eye on the needs of the future.

When making my material, I always ask myself:

-What skills will students need for building a better future?

-How can they develop more critical thinking skills?

-In what ways might their creativity be called upon to help them?

-How will they contribute to their own futures?

-How far will they dream?

-Will they reach the stars?

I believe in quality work for our students. And when I say ‘our’ students, I mean yours and mine. They are the future and their education are the cornerstones we leave behind for them to build towards their own greatness.

I am constantly working on creating more materials like this and welcome all feedback, including ideas for new topics, to make it better.
