In this ESL lesson about money, students learn vocabulary, watch a video about the cost of living in a Dutch city and practise speaking.
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.
In the pre-class part of this ESL lesson about money, students learn and practise verbs connected with money. First, they look at eight sentences and decide if they are generally true. The sentences contain the target vocabulary (e.g. earn, cost, spend, borrow). Then, students complete statements to tell how much certain things cost in their country. Finally, they complete gaps with correct words.
The in-class part of this ESL lesson about money starts with a warm-up task in which students use the words learned at home. They need to choose one option in each pair that they think is better and explain their choice (e.g. save money for a trip or borrow money for a trip). The teacher can also ask students to say which of the verbs they practised are regular and which are not. Students also discuss questions related to money.
Then, students learn some key vocabulary from the video (e.g. groceries, rent, second-hand) by matching sentence halves. The teacher can also ask students some concept-checking questions to make sure they understand the new words. After that, students say whether they agree with the sentences they’ve created. Next, students watch the first part of the video and decide what it is going to be about. While watching the second part, they need to decide if sentences are true or false. They also have to correct the false sentences. In the final task of this ESL lesson about money, students discuss some questions related to the video and the cost of living.
This ESL lesson about money includes an additional task in which students practise the vocabulary from the lesson. You can use it as homework or revision. It’s available in the teacher’s version of the worksheet. You can print it, cut it up and hand it out to your students. It’s also included in the e-lesson plan.
