WARM-UP & ADJECTIVES TO DESCRIBE ROOMS

The first exercise allows students to revise the names of rooms in a house. They work in pairs, choose three rooms from a box provided and brainstorm three activities they do in each of them. Then, they read the descriptions to their partners who try to guess which rooms they’re talking about. The warm-up leads to a vocabulary exercise which introduces students to adjectives to describe rooms in a house. They look at twelve adjectives (e.g. furnished, modern, cosy) and classify them into three groups: positive, negative and neutral.

DESCRIBING ROOMS & LISTENING

The following exercises give students the opportunity to put the adjectives to describe rooms into written and oral practice. First, students use them to complete the gaps in seven given sentences. Then, they look at six pictures showing different rooms in a house and have to prepare a reaction and a response for each picture. They’re encouraged to use a structure with ‘what’, e.g. What a dirty room! The speaking practice leads to a discussion in which students describe the rooms in their own houses, share opinions and preferences. Afterwards, they watch a video in which six speakers talk about their favourite rooms in their houses. At first, students listen for general information and have to say which is each speaker’s favourite room. Then, they listen again and need to find out how the speakers justify their choices. The listening practice is followed by another vocabulary exercise in which students analyse seven statements from the video and choose the correct word out of two options in each of them. Finally, they discuss the statements and decide whether they agree or disagree with them.
