teaching professional people english
I always like to have a little something ‘up my sleeve’ in case I have time left over at the end of a lesson. This rather stunning slideshow is a good example of a simple and attractive piece of media which can be manipulated any way you want. I suggest you give it a look before deciding if you would use it in the same way as I have.
Personally, I like to use this kind of thing to review the following;
Have you ever… been here, seen that, visited that at night…? How many times have you been?
If so, then – When was that? Who were you with? How long did you stay? Where did you stay?
What was it like? (leads on to adjectives of all kinds)
Would you like to go (again)? If you went again, what would you change about your trip?
If you returned with your Mum/brother/best friend/boss … what would you visit in Paris?
Also… Do you think that Paris is an expensive city? (Leads on to revision of ‘costs’ and numbers & currencies)
In my experience, this sort of activity can be used to great effect for anything from 10 minutes to half an hour. What would you do with it?
