Cartoons are the secret ingredient. I can conjure up a funny and relevant cartoon any time. I'll also force the students to open their mouths and speak their minds whenever I can. Out here in Asia, English class is all book learning, no practical action. I do the opposite. Learning a language is all about doing, and in my class, students do things with English and use their skills.
