English Class Materials

The Men Who Build America is an inspiring 8 episode series about the beginnings of the Industrial Age after the American Civil War. The story is in narrative format.  You will learn modern collocations, idioms, and phrasal verbs that are used in everyday language today.  I find the story is inspirational, because it is about poor working men who had nothing. Through hard work and determination, they turned their poverty into riches and created the American Dream. 

This lesson includes: a fantastic and easy to follow story, vocabulary with definitions, worksheets and quizzes, and an hour long video to enjoy.

The Wild Wild West Gold Rush

Enter a time when the American Dream was new. The romance of it all was not all what it seemed. It was hard work for earning pennies a day. It was a wild time in the west where dreams lived and died.  This narrative story includes modern collocations, phrasal verbs, and idioms. Develop your English speaking and reading skills by following the California gold miners of the late 1800's.
