We are back with some business-oriented ESL lesson plan. This time the lesson focuses on Business English collocations. The worksheet is based on Leeron Segal’s speech titled “Upgrading management technology” which is a discussion starter and a background for practising proper collocations.
The lesson kicks off with a short warm-up discussion. Then, students move to an exercise on identifying right Business English collocations. In the second vocabulary activity, students must match some words from the previous activity with groups of words that collocate with them. The next section is video comprehension. The language used in the video is not every demanding, however, the speaker talks pretty fast so students need to focus to catch the answers to comprehension questions.
As usual, the last part of the lesson is a discussion. Try to encourage students to use new Business English collocations – they were selected specifically for this task in mind. The topic and issues raised in the video are quite interesting and should stir a conversation among your students. Hopefully, they will use the new language to express their opinions on the business environment they work in.
The lesson should take around 60 minutes (including 7 min talk) and it has been developed for C1 adult professionals (preferably corporate staff).
