Need for help and support
Dear ! Colleague
I have joined this website for 5 months. Recently, I have created a page that can help both Vietnames and other students in the world. The main purpose of this page likes a bridge where students and teachers can discuss , share what they do not understand or what problems they are trouble in. I ´m appreciate to everyone take a look the page in sometimes and post your exercises that you have used them or give your comments,advices on student ´s answers. 
Here is the link:
Thanks in advance.

videos to start conversations
I have just used the great video  shared by Florimago about the Polish grandpa learning English to be able to talk with his grandchild with my adult group as a converstion starter. It worked just great.
Do any of you have other videos I could use for my group of students to start a conversation about a topic interesting for adults.
Thanks in advance

Spammers or hackers
Hi everybody, just one question because I  have just come back from an outing with my pupils and the site is back to normal, but this morning before I left , it was hacked by a watch seller, can anybody tell me how we can get rid of that, because the spam button  wouldn ´t work!!!Thanks Hugs from cold Normandy, Sylvie

The spam generally takes over all of the pages they are on, affecting all links, and once pushed off, the pages become normal again with access to all pages on the site, which has been my experience of it in the past. But, it has been a few months since i have encountered it here myself, so maybe the effect has changed in that time. 
My way just restores the main page to full usability, even if there are user messages on the main page for a while, which is far better than being hijacked by spam messages for me.

past perfect with ´until ´
Good day fellow teachers,
Could you please clarify the correct rule of using the past perfect with ´until ´:
I hadn ´t understood the lesson until you explained it.
I didn ´t understand the lesson until you had explained it.
Are they both correct? But How? Only one action is supposed to be the first, so only one is supposed to be in the past perfect. I ´m so confused because opinions differ widely!
If only one is correct, which one is it?

short adjective
Hello everyone!
I ´m desperately looking for an adjective such as "big" or "slim" that has a double consonant in its superlative form.
It isn ´t easy because this adjective should:
1) apply to people or to sth that can relate to people (eg the person with the neatest handwriting)
2) be positive in meaning
3) not refer to physical appearance
The reason why I can ´t use physical appearance is that I teach a girl who has major issues with her body image. It won ´t do at all, even if it ´s positive :(
Is anyone more inspired than me?
Thanks and have a nice evening!

Thank you all for your input. I ´ll stick to "the biggest collection of Pokemon cards" and maybe I ´ll add one of these, just to have one more example :)
I ´ll be thinking of you when I teach this later this week!

Students are given two situations. Each situation must be completed at the same time. This helps with students´ critical thinking and developing their persuasive language.
