Information Gap 1 - Looking for a JobGet the students working in pairs.Give one person of each pair the Student A page and the other the Student B page.There are four different jobs being advertised in the local paper. However, there are ten gaps on each page.Students should ask each other questions to find out the information that is missing from their page, then write it down, asking for spellings as necessary.Encourage them to communicate verbally to get the answers, rather than letting each other look at their pages!When all the students have finished, bring the group back together and ask checking questions to elicit the answers, as well as to find out how much the students have understood about the other material in the adverts.

British culture: politeness at work

British culture: politeness at work

This activity is aimed at international staff working in the UK in a professional environment such as an office or university. The resource contains 2 pages of scenarios which the staff are invited to consider and decide how they will respond in a polite manner. The scenarios are based on real life situations at work, using email or in meetings. They could be used individually or in small groups and responses to emails could actually be written and sent to each other; likewise, scenarios for meetings could be acted out. Feedback and discussion could then follow.The activity could be used following instruction around how to formulate polite requests and so on. A list of useful resources relating to this is included.

Negotiating deals

Negotiating deals

This activity is aimed at international students learning English and specifically around Business English / negotiating language for intermediate learners. There are 4 scenarios to be role-played in pairs. For each scenario, there is an accompanying handout of information/images to assist with the role play.

Job interviews

Job interviews

This activity is a role play, whereby one student pretends to be a potential employer conducting a job interview and the other student plays the part of the candidate being interviewed for the job. The role play activity gives details as to how each student can prepare for the task (this could be laminated for regular use in class). The teacher needs to provide some job adverts/descriptions for the students to use alongside the role play activity so that they are focusing on a real job - a selection of job adverts are included in this resource which I have used with my students, but you may wish to find your own adverts, according to your students' interests (again, the adverts could be laminated for use in class). A selection of adverts could be provided by the tutor so that students can choose which job to focus on, or all students could focus on the same job. Alternatively, students could find a job advert they are interested in and bring it in for this class. Students can swap roles so that they get chance to be both the candidate and the employer.An alternative to role playing in pairs is to get the students to work in threes, with one student being the employer, one being the candidate and the other being the observer. The observer can then provide feedback as to how the candidate presented themselves and whether the employer seemed convincing or not! The students could then swap roles.To add a bit of creativity and fun to the task, students playing the part of the employer could think of one 'wild' question to ask after the usual expected questions e.g. 'if you were a biscuit, what kind would you be and why?' The candidate could then try to link this to their own skills and qualifications! For further ideas, see: https://toughnickel.com/finding-job/Off-The-Wall

Write Right EFL- Chapter 8- Contractions- Writing Verb 'to Be' & Present Simple with Contractions

Write Right is a series of chapters to aid EFL/ESL learners of all ages in acquiring handwriting skills. The forming of letters, spelling, basic punctuation, and fundamental grammar issues are addressed in order to produce meaningful sentences and questions. Chapter 8 - Contractions (20 pages). This chapter introduces the apostrophe and demonstrates its usage and positioning for creating contractions when writing Verb 'to Be' and the Present Simple positive and negative sentences . Reinforcement of these grammar concepts is also an aim. The vocabulary used introduces everyday jobs. As with each Write Right EFL chapter, ample practice is provided as are several review exercises relating to the acquisition and spelling of the target vocabulary.
