1. Lots of action on the climate front at present: no fewer than twelve new lesson plans here https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/climate-action-language-education-lesson-plans and the PDF below is this month’s newsletter on the Climate Action in Language Education programme, including news of Episode 3 of the Climate Connections podcast series, Language recycling. You’ll find notes on the show and a transcript here https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/climate-connection-episode-3-language-recycling

2. Here’s an article on Academic English Collocations from Ana Frankenberg Garcia of the University of Surrey http://www.collocaid.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Voices280pp1213_compressed.pdf Be sure to do the gap-fill exercise at the beginning, as instructed! PDF below.

More info and registration here https://literacyforclil.edunext.io/courses/course-v1:literacyforclil+UAH+0/about and a (very) short introductory video here https://youtu.be/RMkI1wmAcyk
