Speaking ClassUnlimited Plan

This is a Speaking Class worksheet. It includes a variety of tasks that let your students practise their speaking skills. There are no grammar or vocabulary tasks in this lesson format. Learn more about it here.

WARM-UP & SPEAKING PRACTICE

The worksheet starts with a warm-up activity in which students look at the definition of the term ‘people person’ and answer some questions about it. Then, students move on to discuss their relationship with different people in their life (friend, business partner, landlord, neighbour, etc.). They use provided ideas (give birthday presents, invite to parties, communicate using only texts, send holiday photos, etc.). After they have discussed it, students talk more about meeting new people, making friends and how it has changed over time. In this speaking worksheet, students also touch on why people feel lonely nowadays. Additionally, they are asked to describe the experience of meeting new people choosing the given words (educational, a waste of time, challenging, exciting, etc.) and explain their choices

VIDEO & DISCUSSION

This speaking worksheet also features an ad for Airbnb. After watching the ad, students first discuss whether they like the ad. Then, they share their experience and say if they ever used the app, or if they would like to. They also think about the idea of staying in a stranger’s house. After discussing the video, students get more speaking practice and look at different ideas on how to meet new people (throwing a party, volunteering, taking your dog to a park, etc). Students talk about these ideas and decide how good or bad they are.

        If you are a new subscriber, this might be caused by the browser’s cache and it keeping the old version of the page (the one before you subscribe), so this will only affect the lessons you visited before subscribing or logging in. Please in such a case, either clear cache or open our website in incognito mode. This should fix the problem straight away.

No, there’s no minimum required number of subscription months. You can cancel any time you want. Basically, you can sign up and then cancel your subscription the next day, which will mean you have access for 1 month and won’t be charged again.

What currencies can I pay in for my subscription?

You can get your own editable copy of an e-lesson plan and make changes to it. To do so, either (1) make a copy of it on your Google Drive (preferable method) or (2) download it in a Powerpoint format (but formatting might be a bit off so we can’t guarantee that it will work well).
