I have tried to make my lessons as interesting as I can and to engage the students’ attention with a variety of material both from course books and from elsewhere. I like to use authentic materials such as newspaper articles and video clips from the news to show students the relevance of these subjects to everyday life and also for their mathematical or scientific value alone.
