In France, many of my colleagues simply photocopy a few pages of Murphy, hand them out, go through the answers and then off home - and they call that teaching...
In Korea, I can't stand those teachers (Korean or English) that just turn on a tape or CD for the text book and get the students to work through a book. Lazy English teaching for sure. However, the only worksheets I like to use are from the British Council or adapted or edited for my classes. I also like to create my own stuff.

I've just been looking at some ELT publishers' sites. Most of them are offering extra worksheets and other goodies for use with their courses but I noticed that OUP has gone one step further. For example, for Headway and Intermediate Express they've put the tapescripts on line in Word format, explicitly so that teachers can make their own exercises with them. And for another book, I can't remember which, you can make cloze exercises from the texts.

As it's the texts (listening or reading) that I generally want to play about with, that for me solves the problem.
