Would you rather ...? ESL / Fun English speaking game - laughs guaranteed! Great for levels A2 - B2

Would you rather ...? ESL / Fun English speaking game - laughs guaranteed! Great for levels A2 - B2

❤️ Would you rather … ? ❤️ This fun game can be used as speaking or writing prompts for min. 2, max. 6 - 8 players. Learners take turns to answer the questions on the cards. The given ideas may both not be very attractive but learners will have to decide on one and explain why. Depending on your student´s language level you can ask them to have a small discussion: learners state their opinion and the others in the group try to convince them of the opposite alternative. I have enclosed some templates to boost your students own creativity. Have fun using this game in class! ❤️ About me ❤️ Hi there 👋🏼! I´m Cindy from Leipzig, Germany. I have been a German and English teacher for more than 12 years now. And I love coffee breaks ☕️. Coffee is just great. Over the years I have realized how much my students benefit most from lessons where THEY are the leaders, where THEY are encouraged to be proactive and learn from each other. Handing over the reins to my students doesn’t make me weaker as a teacher. It makes them responsible for their own learning and is highly motivating. I don’t want my students to be sailors. I want them to be CAPTAINS! (And I want coffee!) My teaching resources are all designed to enable students to USE the language. This is why you will always find the communicative approach in my resources - even simple crosswords come with ideas for speaking activities. All of my resources have been tested in class and will be updated regularly. Please rate my resources to help me build a reputation among millions of resources. Thanks for working with me ☺️ Cindy ❤️ Please see my other resources, too: [https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/CindyKuehne]

Improve persuasive letter argument

Improve persuasive letter argument

This is a resource designed to recap persuasive and letter features for pupils and give them a chance to improve a poorly written argument. You can easily differentiate by asking higher ability pupils to focus on register, style, vocabulary and adding in techniques, while asking lower ability pupils to find the problems and suggest simple improvements. The “voice” in the letter to improve is a teenage pyromaniac who goes off topic. Resource includes a technique recap and reminders of the key ingredients for persuasive letter writing and arguments. Could be set as a main activity, or a starter or plenary to recap prior or previous learning. Could also be set as a homework task or project. Perfect for revising or teaching the new GCSE AQA Paper 2 Writers’ viewpoints and perspectives Section B writing task. Discusses the need to be convincing and consider tone, style, register, form, audience and purpose.
