ESL LESSON PLAN - CHARACTER TRAITS

ESL speaking lessons are topic based lessons. Each lesson comes with a wide range of activities to ensure sound development of fluency and accuracy of students. Instructions are clear and easy to follow. Activities are easy to implement. They don’t require any extra preparation, just print and go to teach. ESL Speaking Lessons aim to meet CEFR B1/B2 level speaking goals. Therefore, lessons go well with students at these levels. This particular lesson includes following activities: -vocabulary list of character traits -discussion topics -dialog completion -vocabulary

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).

Reading and Writing Activity - Lost and Found

Reading and Writing Activity - Lost and Found

This is an engaging, deductive activity resulting in finding and matching the lost children with their descriptions. It is suitable for use with children who have the basics of reading with understanding in English. It involves reading the descriptions of twelve children and recording the identities on a worksheet. An answer sheet is included for use by teachers or to provide the opportunity for peer marking. Clothes and colour reference pages are also available for use to aid comprehension if vocabulary is unknown. This is of particular value to children who have English as an additional language. Clothes and accessories picture and word matching cards are included and could be used prior to taking part in the deductive activity to ensure familiarisation with the vocabulary to be used. Reading, writing and deductive skills are required for the worksheet completion. If the activity is done as pair work or group work, speaking, listening and interaction are also involved. This activity is suitable for use by all Primary 2 / Primary3 children. If children have English as an additional language, using the activity with older children would also be beneficial for the learning /consolidation of English clothes and colour vocabulary. This resource could be used by an individual, as pair work, group work or by all children who could complete individual worksheets. The total number of twelve illustrations of children and twelve find cards would always have to be provided for the worksheet completion as twelve answers are required.. If using as a class activity more duplicated illustrations and find cards would need to be provided. Suggestions for use • The illustrations of the children could be secretly hidden in the classroom. (while the children are outside) The children could each be given a find card and then play ‘Hunt the lost children’ . • The illustrations could be pinned on walls around the classroom. • Single illustrations could be given to each child who would then swop with another child who has a different illustration. An optional follow up activity could be individual pupils writing a description of one class member. The descriptions could then be redistributed randomly to the class for identification by other class members. A worksheet is included for use.
