This presentation goes through possible scenarios/descriptive writing tasks and gets students to think about taking ownership over their writing and making it as creative as possible. This is all done through image stimuli.

Tenses re-cap, past present and future using celebrity profiles as examples good for ESOL learners

Tenses re-cap, past present and future using celebrity profiles as examples good for ESOL learners

1) Starter task: a grid of verbs requiring students to convert them into the past tense, some regular and some irregular. This task can be done individually or in pairs/teams with a competitive element.2)This task works really well of ESOL learners/classes as it is a fun way to practice using the three different tenses. I usually introduce the celebrity profiles individually, there is one written in each specific tense. Students can read through the passage together or alone, taking note of the prominent tense. They then use this as an example to produce their own profile in the specific tense. I also like to provide students with coloured paper, different pictures and ways to decorate their pieces of work.

Study schedules and lifestyle habits in different countries

Study schedules and lifestyle habits in different countries

This discussion activity is designed to raise intercultural awareness in classes comprising of students from different countries. It can be used as an icebreaker at the beginning of a course when a class first meets, or as an introduction to the theme of culture in a class who know each other well. It can also be used to develop vocabulary relating to daily routines, personalities and food. For young children, this activity could be used in conjunction with telling the time and ordering daily activities. For older students, it could be an introduction to cultural aspects such as attitudes towards time in different countries and could lead on to learning about, say, Hofstede's cultural dimensions theory.The resource consists of one handout designed for students to use in class. It contains a series of discussion questions to prompt conversation in pairs or small groups and leads on to an activity where students design their own schedule for the school/college/programme they are attending. The personalised schedules could just be discussed verbally or they could be realised in the form of a poster or using a planner on the computer before being presented to the rest of the class.
