Let's buy a house! -  A property buying game that practises speaking skills

Let's buy a house! - A property buying game that practises speaking skills

This is for students who have an intermediate level of English. It is to do with buying houses and is useful for: Learning or revising rooms of the house Discussion classes - “where do you want to live?” Oral practise Role-playing Reviewing large numbers (it might be a good idea to go over this at the start) Critical thinking in a second language It is a very active lesson so is excellent for injecting some fun into your lessons. In order to lead into this activity, I suggest showing students a video of a property buying show to begin with. They seem to have them in every country and every student will get the hang of the game very quickly with this context. Tip: I suggest laminating these resources so you can use them time and time again. You can use as many or as little properties as you like. Instructions: THE OVERALL GOAL IS FOR THE ESTATE AGENTS TO MAKE AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE AND THE BUYERS TO SPEND AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE AND FIND THE BEST HOUSE FOR THEIR CHARACTER. Half the class are estate agents, half the class are buyers. Split the houses (cheap/mid-range/expensive) amongst the Estate Agents. Tell them that they want to make as much money as possible, but they can sell the houses for as cheap as they want. Give each buyer a character and a budget (at random). Explain that the characters have to go to each estate agent and try and buy a house for as little money as possible. They have to negotiate (in English of course!) to meet each other halfway. The house has to be suitable for their family, as this will be checked later. It must have enough bedrooms, for example and the houses need to suit the working and school life of the families. When they have reached a deal, the estate agent must write a receipt that the buyer then signs. I have included a receipt that you can use if you so wish. The estate agent also notes down how much money they have made. At the end of the game, when every buyer has found a house, come together and find the winning estate agent: the one with the most money. Then, find the winning buyer: who has bought a house within their budget for their character and how much money did they save? Other students can vote on these. This game took my students around 45 minutes for a class of 15 - and we switched over in the middle (Estate Agents became buyers and vice versa).

EAL for Secondary Students - Workbook 1

EAL for Secondary Students - Workbook 1

EAL for Secondary Students (Workbook 1) directly addresses the unique academic needs facing students who arrive in the UK with little or no English. Beginning with first principles EAL for Secondary Students ensures that the student will develop an effective understanding of English. The tremendous advantage of this resource is that the student will immediately become fully included in the learning process. At the end of each unit, the student can record the progress they have made by completing the user friendly self-assessment sheet. EAL for Secondary Students is a student-centred resource which enables the student to be actively engaged in developing skills that are required in an academic environment. The teacher can witness and monitor the steady progress the EAL student is making towards becoming an independent learner. EAL for Secondary Students allows the teacher the flexibility to select appropriate topics. EAL for Secondary Students can, also, be used as an excellent Induction programme. When it is necessary and appropriate to withdraw students from mainstream classes, this is a systematic self-contained resource that enhances language development and activates confidence in the student. EAL for Secondary Students Workbook 1 contains over 80 pages of exercises.

Children's Illustrated Poetry Book - Level 3 book 1

Children's Illustrated Poetry Book - Level 3 book 1

It is the shame of our times that the rhymes and verse most quoted, recited and trawled up again and again are on the most part hundreds of years old. By now children should be skipping to rhymes other than sixteenth century accounts of the black death. I is my hope to put a more modern group of verse into the public domain. Illustrated rhyming poems for young (and old) children to sing recite and skip to. All royalty free and can be copied, scrawled on walls, danced to and generally treated as if they were something to be enjoyed rather than just scary poetry. These poetry books are arranged in groups of difficulty ranging from 1 to 5. The easiest is group 1, the hardest group 5. They can all be spoken aloud with ease and there are no offensive words. They have a bigger range than the story books and should be read before deciding which age groups are suitable in your situation, some in 4 and 5 range have complex emotional ideas.

Africa is available as a free download so you can get a sense of the quality. GAME 1: LINK (2-5 players) Each round consists of 2 players drawing 1 card each and playing a mini-war (as in the card game War). Both players say the name of their country but keep their card hidden from view. Player 1 asks a question from the question card. A player wins the round by having the higher number (or better rank) in the category chosen by the questioner; or by answering the question correctly. The winner can either keep the card they are holding or change cards with the losing player. Then both players place a piece on the map board. Play now continues with player 2 and player 3. The game ends when all the country cards have been used. Points are scored for linked countries (1 point for each contiguous country, minimum 3). GAME 2: WAR A War-type card game can be played if you only have 5-10 minutes to spare. Follow the same routine as above, except the winner keeps both cards. GAME 3: HOLIDAY Players start at a predetermined space, draw a card, roll the dice, and move their piece that many spaces naming all the countries passed through. When the destination is reached, a new card is drawn.
