Download to enjoy the full audio/animation. Accompanying worksheets/forms/portfolio at http://bit.ly/seXH6I OR http://www.multiupload.com/36M9G8FFAO This 62-slide Powerpoint includes practice questions, tips, advice, ideas and games (such as Time Bomb and Angry Birds) to prepare P6 children for their secondary school interview in HK. There is also a teacher evaluation form for mock interviews and a 12-page Portfolio/Primer for each student. The booklet includes brainstorm sheets, group tasks and lists of questions which have been asked in previous interviews (we asked all P6 leavers to fill in a feedback form last year). All easily editable and adaptable.

This selection of my favourite English lesson resources is adapted specifically for other Hong Kong primary children. All have an informal, fun-based approach and are original designs courtesy of yours truly.

Some Powerpoints cover several lessons and include accompanying printable worksheets and games - most can be adapted for older or younger pupils.
