DISCUSSION & VOCABULARY

First, students have to read and express their opinions on a few statement concerning advertising. Next, they move to one vocabulary exercise. They have to explain the meaning of the listed adjectives used for describing adverts. The list includes 16 adjectives such as: eye-catching, hilarious, powerful, innovative, amusing, surprising, shocking, etc.

DESCRIBING ADS

Finally, students work in pairs or groups, examine and focus on describing ads given by the teacher.
When expressing their views on particular ads, students should consider the following points:

  • describe the ad and its layout
  • what kind of emotions it evokes
  • why this ad may attract audience
  • what the goal of this ad is
  • what you think about the ad

There’s no Teacher’s Version for this worksheet as this worksheet focuses solely on speaking and there are no fixed answers.

      Actually, this lesson plan doesn’t need a teacher’s version.

    I love this lesson! There is no prep required from either the student or the tutor (big plus for me!). It covers a variety of subjects and the student has to think out of the box. Excellent for vocabulary expansion and speaking practice.

      So good to hear that! It’s a pretty short worksheet that actually supplements another ESL Brains lesson but I think it’s useful on its own as well.

      1. Gail Crous

        In exercise 1 a) please add the word “The” in front of culture.

        1. Stan

          Of course! We’ve fixed and redone this worksheet a bit to fit our current standards.

    Hey there, thanks for the good lesson but I cannot download the student’s version. Can anyone help me?

      You need to have either a Premium or Unlimited subscription to access this lesson.

    I love the idea behind this lesson plan! Just a friendly heads up, however – grammatical errors are repeated throughout.
    It should be: “What does the ad look like and what is its layout?
    What kind of emotions does it evoke?
    Why may this ad attract an audience and who is its target audience?”

    1. Stan

      OMG! That definitely shouldn’t have happened. I feel like that particular worksheet has never gone through proofreading. Of course, we immediately fixed the issues there and reuploaded new files. Thanks for pointing this out.
