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.
