C1 / Advanced60 minFlipped LessonUnlimited Plan
This is a Flipped Classroom lesson plan. In a nutshell, it means that the first part of the lesson needs to be done by students at home. Learn more about flipped classroom and how we implement it in these lesson plans in our post.
The pre‐class part includes two vocabulary exercises. First, students read a few sentences and have to choose the best word (A, B or C) to complete them. Thanks to that, students will learn words and phrases such as flat revenues, equity stake, majority shareholder, etc. All of the vocabulary will later appear in the video. Next, students read some sentences and complete phrasal verbs with the correct words provided in the box. The phrasal verbs in this exercise are connected with companies and their operations, e.g. buy out, step aside or sell off.
Video & Discussion
The in‐class part starts with a short discussion about companies, the problems they face and some exit strategies. After that, students watch the first part of a short video presenting a business case study and need to complete a table with the missing information. In the second listening comprehension task, students watch the rest of the video and need to discuss a few questions.
Vocabulary & Case Studies
Then, students read three short texts and have to complete them with missing prepositions. Apart from checking students’ knowledge of phrasal verbs they learnt beforehand, we also revise some common expressions such as see eye to eye, click with someone or be on the same page. After completing the texts, in their own words, students need to explain what the expressions mean. Finally, this business case study worksheet ends with a discussion. Students read the three situations again, weigh up the possible options and say what decisions they would take when faced with such challenges.
