This lesson aims to build students' confidence tackling photo card tasks in both writing and speaking. It introduces them to the PALM structure- People, Action, Location and Mood.

This worksheet is ideal for setting as a cover lesson or homework project. There are a range of tasks such as a photo task, reading comprehension and translation from French to English. The worksheet culminates in an extended project where students describe their ideal house using the conditional tense- support given.
