With this conversation lesson plan students get plenty of opportunities to talk about their experience with English outside the classroom. They also watch a video, read three short texts and learn some useful vocabulary.
WARM-UP & VIDEO
The worksheet starts with an activity in which students talk about using English outside the classroom. There are two picture prompts and some questions to guide them. Then, students watch the video for the first time (without sound) and decide what the people might have said. They check their answers by watching the video again, with the sound on. After that, they look at five gapped sentences taken from the video and try to come up with the missing words. They watch the video one more time and check their answers. They also share their thoughts about the video and say what else they can do to practise speaking English outside the classroom.
READING & CONVERSATION
In the next task of this conversation lesson plan, students read three short texts with different suggestions of how to use English outside the classroom (e.g. apps, English-speaking meetings), and say if they have ever tried anything similar. Then, students look at the words in bold in the texts (e.g. pronunciation, improve, revise) and match them with their meanings. This activity is followed by a longer discussion. Students say what they think about the ideas, discuss the advantages and disadvantages, and come up with other ways to improve English pronunciation. After that, they look at seven more ways to practise English outside the classroom and complete gaps with words in the box (e.g. mistakes, subtitles, lyrics). This conversation lesson ends with a task in which students decide which of the ideas from the previous exercise would be best in different situations (e.g. to improve writing skills, to revise vocabulary).
