The worksheet starts with a warm-up. Students look at different types of trips and share what mode of transport they would use in each case. Then, they move on to speaking about air travel. They talk about travelling by plane in their country, about its advantages and disadvantages. They also discuss whether travelling by plane is dangerous and come up with reasons why some people avoid flying.
VIDEO & DISCUSSION
In this part of the lesson students work with the video. At first they read a message in which a friend asks for advice regarding a long-haul flight. Students brainstorm as many tips as they can to share with their friend. After that, students watch the video giving tips on what to do on a long flight and compare them to their ideas. Students answer more questions about the tips and share their own experiences and preferences when it comes to long flights.
READING & MORE SPEAKING ABOUT AIR TRAVEL
Students read three short stories about different situations related to travelling by plane. They discuss how people in each situation might have felt and what they might have done. Students also share if anything similar happened to them and what they did or what they would have done. In the final part of the lesson, students tell an anecdote about one of the given topics (e.g. an incident at the airport, a security issue, a lost document, etc.). The rest of the group tries to guess whether the story is true or not. If students have a lot of experience with air travel, they can tell two stories – one true and one false.
