Vendez la maison! (Home or Away: A place in the sun)

Vendez la maison! (Home or Away: A place in the sun)

This powerpoint and the accompanying worksheets is an oral activity for two groups of students. Each group has to try to sell one house to the teacher or a jury. Following the concept of the TV show Home or Away: A Place in the Sun, one of the houses is in the client’s homeland and the other is in a more exotic country. The groups will compete against each other to try to sell their house to the client, who has a specific profile and a set of demands that must be met by the house. The powerpoint allows for guided preparation of the task, then the groups research the house and its area for 30mn and prepare their speech. The winning group (most convincing, best-prepared, best oral skills) wins a prize. My students really enjoyed this concept!
