racheldaw18 2015-12-09T20:29:11 Excited that I might actually be able to join in #eltchat - which looks like it might be about Christmas, wahoo! :) #elt (9pm GMT everyone!)
sandymillin 2015-12-09T20:39:37 @racheldaw18 Me too! Finally remembered it's on in the evening at the right time :) #eltchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T20:41:45 I'm already waiting in @nurph @sandymillin :) Although unfortunately I don't have many classes left before I fly home for Xmas! #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T20:44:32 Who says it will be Xmas? #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T20:45:18 Nobody yet @Shaunwilden sorry, I was just getting excited in general - just came from a Christmas market here in Berlin :)  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T20:48:58 @racheldaw18 @Shaunwilden Kind of hoping it's not Christmas, because that will negate my webinar ;) #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T20:49:26 @sandymillin @racheldaw18 Or improve it? ;-) #ELTchat
ELTchat 2015-12-09T20:50:23 Christmas activities for Adults  #ELTchat
kamilaofprague 2015-12-09T20:51:10 RT @ELTchat: Christmas activities for Adults  #ELTchat
ELTchat 2015-12-09T20:51:17 What is your webinar on @sandymillin ? #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T20:52:58 Hello everyone  #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T20:53:09 But your delivery will be much more cohesive and comprehensive, whatever we chat about @sandymillin - so don't worry if it wins! :) #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T20:53:19 @Marisa_C Hello #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T20:53:25 I hope you have lots of Xmas ideas  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T20:54:05 We could do video chat on @nurph but am in my jamies already it's 11 p.m. this way  #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T20:54:33 @racheldaw18 @Nurph @sandymillin I really must work out Nurph before the new year chat #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T20:54:37 @Marisa_C Nope none #ELTchat I cant see why the asker doesnt just adapt the YL activities they refer to #ELTchat #bloodyxmas
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T20:56:29 @Shaunwilden Ebenezzer overtones  #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T20:56:33 Sorry @Shaunwilden you can hate me for this one... (Not sure if I'm supposed to 'fess up or not but I was really struggling!)  #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T20:56:55 @Marisa_C Yep #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T20:57:02 @ELTchat Christmas and New Year activities :) For everybody, but mostly things I've used with adults! And @Shaunwilden, how rude! #eltchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T20:57:09 Nurph is so easy @KateLloyd05 - and then you can skip the hashtag copying + pasting! You just need your Twitter account :)  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T20:57:33 yes - much easier  and u can use video chat as well  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T20:57:45 @Marisa_C What's the Nurph link? #eltchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T20:57:59 https://t.co/qyRcXz03Jm #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T20:58:03 @sandymillin @ELTchat How was it rude, i was simply pointing out you might get an activity you could add! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T20:59:07 @sandymillin yikes he's getting so cranky he thinks it's normal talk :-D  #ELTchat
naomishema 2015-12-09T20:59:59 Hi there! Thanks fror the reminder about Nurph! #ELTchat
MaryGlasgowELT 2015-12-09T21:00:09 Do your students love Tintin? Make sure you check out this exhibtition https://t.co/6regLxRdt2 #ELTchat https://t.co/ZxF0CCAhVq
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:00:53 Am I allowed to ask if it's across the world that your last few lessons with #ELT classes are about Christmas?  #ELTchat
ELTchat 2015-12-09T21:01:02 OK #ELTchat start time - will be tweeting about Christmas activities for the adult classroom  #ELTchat
ELTchat 2015-12-09T21:01:20 Please do NOT tweet irrelevant tweets or links  #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T21:01:41 @racheldaw18 I'll make it a New Years resolution, got to remember my Twitter password first #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:02:25 @racheldaw18 Of course! #ELTchat
naomishema 2015-12-09T21:02:30 How about Christmas & other holidays. I know some teach very international & mixed religion courses #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:02:31 Haha I had to reset mine today too @KateLloyd05 - one of many joys of updating to Windows 10 was all saved passwords got wiped! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:02:32 @naomishema Hey Naomi - Puffin asks to make the topic a bit broader - not just Xmas and I think we should be able to  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:02:54 What's the #eltchat nurph link?
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:03:01 I think that's a good idea! One of my classes seemed really keen to talk about Christmas 'coz it's very different in my country' #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:03:11 @KateLloyd05 @racheldaw18 There you are ONE excellent activity New Year's Resolutions  #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:03:16 You just go on https://t.co/8vfhmHgZ2B and then type the #eltchat to find our chat @sandymillin :) #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T21:03:21 @racheldaw18 nope. Isn't Christmas here till January. We are allowed one Christmas lesson with each YL class only #ELTchat
naomishema 2015-12-09T21:03:23 @Marisa_C Thanks! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:03:27 with loads of great lesson plans floating aroung  #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2015-12-09T21:03:45 I have loads of activities, but don't often use them any more as we close for the end of the year nowadays.#eltchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:03:56 Wow you actually have rules @KateLloyd05 ? Mind blown! We have 2 whole binders of 'Christmas fun' in our staff room in Berlin :)  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:04:04 @racheldaw18 Found it :) #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:04:06 Hi @sandymillin - let us know what you think of @Nurph :) #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:04:38 Bridget Jones is good value - here is an old post of mine with links to other great lessons  https://t.co/LjbwKM2zpZ  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:04:51 @racheldaw18 @Nurph I've used it before - I love it! Just couldn't remember the link :) #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T21:05:01 @racheldaw18 well it's not nearly Christmas here! #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:05:05 I must say another big Thank you to @SueAnnan for sending me so many fantastic Xmas resources in response to a Twitter plea! :)  #ELTchat
naomishema 2015-12-09T21:05:17 Are alot of the activities related to food? It seems to be the first thing that comes to mind #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:05:21 At IH Brno we used to have a binder of Christmas lessons, and a CD with more versions of Jingle Bells than anyone could ever need! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:05:34 @racheldaw18 why not post some of @SueAnnan ;s links then :-)  #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2015-12-09T21:05:41 @SueAnnan ' s the chat happening mow? Have lost track. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:05:46 RT @naomishema Are alot of the activities related to food? It seems to be the first thing that comes to mind #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:06:06 @MarjorieRosenbe n yest it is welcome welcome  #ELTchat

Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:06:28 @SueAnnan hi there - love your Xmas tree climber cat!!!  #ELTchat
ESOLLiz 2015-12-09T21:06:32 To keep it meaningful I tend to rely on lots of sharing traditions from each others' countries / families etc & 1 or 2 Xmas songs! #eltchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:06:53 Yes @naomishema - the few 121s I've had so far have ended up talking a LOT about food :) I print out photos to practice vocab!  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:06:57 @ESOLLiz good idea for multicultural classes  #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2015-12-09T21:07:00 @Marisa_C she's a character #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:07:04 @ESOLLiz think that's a really good idea. A couple of years ago I did a kind of photo documentary of my Christmas for future years #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2015-12-09T21:07:05 @naomishema I do a winter holiday lesson on Xmas, Chanukah and Kwanza. #eltchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:07:16 And Christmas crosswords! But @ESOLLiz that's a great way to do it with multicultural classes :)  #ELTchat
naomishema 2015-12-09T21:07:23 RT @MarjorieRosenbe: @naomishema I do a winter holiday lesson on Xmas, Chanukah and Kwanza. #eltchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:07:42 @ESOLLiz Most of them are in this post: https://t.co/1CjXEA1bol (Don't look too closely at activities if you're coming to webinar!) #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:07:52 @sandymillin that's what I have from my year abroad days: photos of my family with cracker hats etc, students love the realia! #ELTchat

Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:08:33 @racheldaw18 @sandymillin stealing them all :-D  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:08:42 We have 669 photos in our #eltpics Festivals and Celebrations album, including many Christmas ones, but covering others too #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:09:19 My students loved it when I took some Christmas pudding and Christmas cake back to Sevastopol after Christmas :) #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:09:23 I tweeted this link to a lesson on the john lewis ada few weeks ago https://t.co/rTwlnVOtDS #eltchat

racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:10:22 Thanks @sandymillin - amazing compilation! My M&S food post is my only contribution so far: https://t.co/EFGA7IvhYw #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2015-12-09T21:10:46 #ELTchatShelley has just posted a lotof great ideas on Fb today
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T21:11:20 @Shaunwilden I have advertising lessons coming up with teens, might combine it #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:11:23 @SueAnnan Like? :) #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:11:29 @SueAnnan I love the serious look on their faces while they are doing the most ridiculous things :-) #ELTchat
ESOLLiz 2015-12-09T21:11:34 @sandymillin Ooh great, will have a look, thanks! #eltchat
naomishema 2015-12-09T21:12:21 @Shaunwilden lovely advert! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:12:21 @Shaunwilden that was a sweet advert  #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:12:52 @KateLloyd05 If you can find them there are a few piss take ads  of the ad now which are even better #ELTchat
ncguerreiro 2015-12-09T21:12:58 Believe Mog can be a great video 2 show https://t.co/bvFvKEDoak n talk abt unforgettable Xmas ads n differences in Xmas traditions #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2015-12-09T21:13:17 #ELTchatAnd Chia had some lesson plans to use the different Crimbo adverts on Ep professional
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:13:30 Any ideas for using the Christmas #ELTpics? #eltchat
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T21:13:30 @sandymillin @ESOLLiz gonna check out those jokes Sandy, I have a teen class who tell the worst jokes #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2015-12-09T21:13:31 I give students texts on Xmas, Chanuka & Kwanza to read. Then we do 3 overlapping circles to fill in w/ differences & similarities #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:13:45 @Marisa_C its friggin annoying - summed up by this https://t.co/z2G8waYVnb #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:13:47 And @naomishema do you know about any good Hannukah lesson plans or activities? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2015-12-09T21:13:54 RT @Shaunwilden: @KateLloyd05 If you can find them there are a few piss take ads  of the ad now which are even better #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:13:58 @sandymillin may be do a picture karaoke with #eLtpics  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:14:19 @Marisa_C What's a picture karaoke? #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:14:51 Also @OUPELTGlobal had a good jigsaw reading activity in their last email which the very kind @SueAnnan also sent me! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:14:53 you put the pics in a ppt or sth like that and flick every so often so ss have to keep up with the story  #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:15:06 Ah that sounds like such a fun idea @Marisa_C  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:15:20 you could show the picture and a caption that has to be mentioned as part of the story  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:15:36 @Marisa_C I like that. #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2015-12-09T21:15:37 Also bring a menorah, dreidl, Xmas cracker with toys & paper hat to class. They love it. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:15:38 it IS great fun - the caption gives u more controe  #ELTchat
ESOLLiz 2015-12-09T21:15:42 @KateLloyd05 @sandymillin I was looking for some terrible cracker jokes for ss to match q & a - perfect! #eltchat
naomishema 2015-12-09T21:15:44 Its sad but in high-school we have midterms as soon as we get back from vacation & all ss want before holiday is test review #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:16:17 @naomishema Not sad at all, proper use of a lesson that is :-) #ELTchat
naomishema 2015-12-09T21:16:20 YOunger kids do holiday questionairres and coloring sheets #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:16:29 @ESOLLiz @KateLloyd05 @sandymillin i like bad cracker jokes -Ss can write some new ones #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2015-12-09T21:16:45 @sandymillin Haven't done this yet but good idea. #Eltchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:16:47 Also reminded me of an activity from @haniazieba where students have a picture and a caption, and they tell the story... 1/2 #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2015-12-09T21:16:51 @Marisa_C or you could get them to make the story using the pics in bookr or something similar #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:17:02 2/2 and the captions can lead them to different interpretations of the story #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2015-12-09T21:17:34 @Marisa_C great idea #eltchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:17:51 @sandymillin exactly and @SueAnnan any tool will do - whatever suits you - even just pics on the wall u know  #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T21:18:14 @sandymillin give out pics and ask them 2 predict tradition. Did with other pics last year. Pantomime produced some funny ideas #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:18:47 u can cut up lots of #eltpics Xmas pics diagonally or in some interesting way and have a mingle where ss try to find other half #ELTchat
ESOLLiz 2015-12-09T21:18:56 @naomishema Yes, my learners have exam in Jan and I'm aware of limited class time. They do enjoy talking about xmas though... #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T21:19:17 @Marisa_C @ESOLLiz @sandymillin anything is better than "Friday - the way when you fry" #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:19:26 Cut up a set of  old christmas cards, give a piece to each sts and they have to mill, to find all the piece of their card #eltchat
ncguerreiro 2015-12-09T21:19:47 @ESOLLiz @KateLloyd05 @sandymillin what's a cracker joke? #eltchat
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T21:19:56 @ESOLLiz @naomishema us too but luckily not much to cover #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T21:20:23 @ncguerreiro @ESOLLiz @sandymillin Christmas crackers have the worst jokes in them #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:20:29 @ncguerreiro @ESOLLiz @KateLloyd05 @sandymillin here you go https://t.co/5DAAROxJbu #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:20:32 @ncguerreiro @ESOLLiz @KateLloyd05 @sandymillin piece of paper u get in a Xmas cracker  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:20:34 Tesco is doing an advert about having a gluten-free Christmas this year that my mum is very happy about :) #eltchat Could use it... #ELTchat
naomishema 2015-12-09T21:20:40 @Shaunwilden The card idea works well for other holidays, like New Year cards. Or even birthday - different ways to celebrate that. #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:21:09 ...to explore problems that Christmas can cause, from the minor to the bigger ones - what solutions do people have for them? #ELTchat
fionaljp 2015-12-09T21:21:46 Hello and sorry I'm late #ELTchat - did a quick Christmas search on my ELT resources on Scoop it https://t.co/aagliyciyq
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:21:47 Or a challenge for SS who like cookery - find a Christmas recipe, cook it and bring it along. Try gluten-free, vegan etc ;) #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:21:54 Indeed you can do very serious discussions/debates esp if u have a dour group of ss who enjoy slagging Xmas  #ELTchat
naomishema 2015-12-09T21:22:04 @sandymillin the advert brings up one major holiday problem - lonely people who don't have anyone to celebrate with... #ELTchat
ncguerreiro 2015-12-09T21:22:26 @Shaunwilden thanks for the link! i'd never heard of jokes in crackers. #eltchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:22:37 @Marisa_C You mean if @Shaunwilden is in your class? :p #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:22:50 RT @sandymillin: @Marisa_C You mean if @Shaunwilden is in your class? :p #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:23:09 @naomishema Yep, or people who've had bad experiences around Christmas. How can you help them to enjoy Christmas again? Bittersweet #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:23:17 RT @sandymillin @Marisa_C You mean if @Shaunwilden is in your class? :p   ahem  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:23:40 @naomishema Also seen things this year about somebody giving a homeless person a small present each day in the run-up to Christmas #ELTchat
ESOLLiz 2015-12-09T21:24:13 @Marisa_C Yes & plenty of authentic mats e.g. news story today about expensive presents, lots of issues to discuss #eltchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:24:46 Xmas is a great time for bringing out kindness in ppl and working on class cohesion positive feelings etc - if u have issues ie.  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:25:01 A lesson plan from AllAtC based on a Curry's advert with Jeff Goldblum: https://t.co/1JWNDUzIg5 #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:25:18 @Marisa_C @sandymillin am very Xmassy, Just dont like wasting my sts time with it every year & I dont like that it starts in Sept #eltchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:25:49 So team building activities might also work well - I like to get Ss to write "thank you" notes to everyone in class abt sth  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:26:10 Could also talk about 'Hot holiday toys' https://t.co/QsxqhR2eXZ #eltchat or the idea of charity gifts #ELTchat
ncguerreiro 2015-12-09T21:26:28 @sandymillin great! maybe have an advent calendar, with a small language task per day, like "say sth positive abt ur year"? #eltchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:26:39 @Shaunwilden @Marisa_C .Fair enough :) #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:26:47 And why not watch a bit of a classic Xmas movie? I love Xmas movies  #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:26:54 RT @ncguerreiro: @sandymillin great! maybe have an advent calendar, with a small language task per day, like "say sth positive abt ur year"…
naomishema 2015-12-09T21:26:59 This video isn't holiday specific but the season and message fit right in:https://t.co/zORu3Qa2bc #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:27:07 You could, of course, use the latest episode of @teflcommute in some way. Haven't managed to listen to it yet though @Shaunwilden  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:27:34 @sandymillin @teflcommute @Shaunwilden aah right now u are making the man happy  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:27:51 @Marisa_C Yes! Muppet Christmas Carol, Love Actually, The Holiday. @leoselivan has a LA lesson plan: https://t.co/MKcc0RBOJA #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:28:13 @sandymillin @teflcommute Nice one Sandy :-) Theres also an activity at the end for class based on guessing whats in the stocking #ELTchat
TEFLCommute 2015-12-09T21:28:57 RT @sandymillin: You could, of course, use the latest episode of @teflcommute in some way. Haven't managed to listen to it yet though @Shau…
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:29:12 @naomishema Maybe you could use @tekhnologicblog's Christmas quiz for pre-test stuff? https://t.co/Mym1dFHtUr Can personalise it #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2015-12-09T21:29:18 @sandymillin that's great, my advertising lesson is getting huge. #ELTchat
racheldaw18 2015-12-09T21:29:28 So many fantastic ideas! I'm so sorry though but I have to sign out for tonight, can't wait to read the rest :)  #ELTchat

sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:31:27 Maybe you could play students a few Christmas carols and get them to choose one they'd like to learn and sing? #ELTchat

Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:31:49 @Marisa_C whats that? #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:31:58 Silent Night is in so many languages - could they have a go at translating it into English, then compare it to an English version #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:32:09 @sandymillin yes or choose one to write down lyrics and bring to class for a carols evening ? #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:32:14 Or vice-versa to make it a lot less challenging - English to their language, then compare! #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:32:20 @Marisa_C Yes #ELTchat

sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:36:35 What about some kind of planning activity? Like plan the layout of a Christmas market? @racheldaw18 would like that :) #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:37:08 @sandymillin @racheldaw18 nice idea - or organise a Xmas charity event to raise funds for refugees  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:37:17 Not quite sure exactly how you'd set up the activity though... some kind of logic puzzle for them to figure out where stalls are? #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:37:28 @Marisa_C  I like that! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2015-12-09T21:38:04 @sandymillin bigger project tho - but can include text etc - read what others have done and so on  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:38:19 @SueAnnan Yes, or Christmas crafts. If you've got parents, they might like things they can do with their kids #ELTchat

Shaunwilden 2015-12-09T21:39:15 RT @Marisa_C: Let's remember Xmas is a wrapping but there's gotta be language activity in there  #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:39:19 Could do something about recycling, then link to what crafts you could make. e.g. we had toilet roll snowmen at our YL social :) #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:40:59 @Marisa_C True,but that's what I love about Christmas lessons-they're full of language 'cause SS are generally interested in topic! #ELTchat

naomishema 2015-12-09T21:44:38 We play miming opening a gift box with something inside. Ss have to guess what gift is. U could adapt that for gifts under a tree. #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:44:59 There must be some 'unboxing' videos on YouTube for Christmas gifts. Just a minute... #ELTchat
sandymillin 2015-12-09T21:45:23 Yep, loads! https://t.co/bXy4BWqON6 #ELTchat
