The British Isles

The British Isles

A task-based teaching unit designed for ESL-students practicing intermediate English while building a cultural knowledge about the UK. The unit is mainly about England, but the map-task helps the students get a geographical idea of what the British Isles consist of. I would recommend spending about two months using the teaching course, depending on how many lessons you have with your class. The only thing you need to find yourself is the movie "This is England". I found the film on Netflix, where it's still available.

This lesson enables students to think about mood and atmosphere when writing to describe. They are given the task to describe a journey and then they have to do this using the opposite mood/atmosphere.
