In this lesson, students watch a video about introverts, learn and practise adjectives to describe people, and discuss what being an introvert or an extrovert is.
WARM-UP & ADJECTIVES TO DESCRIBE PEOPLE
The lesson starts with a speaking activity in which students look at some photos and say why people decided to spend their time a certain way (e.g. alone, with a friend, in a group). Then, students create pairs of opposite adjectives to describe people (e.g. anxious – calm, energised – exhausted, shy – confident). They also use the adjectives to complete statements about spending time alone and with other people. After that, they compare the photos from the first exercise and the statements and match them. They also say which of the statements are true for them and give some details.
VIDEO & SPEAKING
Students watch the first part of the video and learn the difference between introverts and extroverts. While watching, they need to decide which statements from the first part of the lesson describe introverts, and which ones are about extroverts. Then, they watch the second part of the video and discuss some questions about being an introvert and being an extrovert. Next, students watch a part of the video again and do a comprehension task. They need to decide which points from the list are mentioned in the video. (e.g. something unique about introverts, jobs introverts usually choose). After that, students complete some tips for introverts with correct prepositions (e.g. grateful for), watch a part of the video and check or complete their answers. The listening activities include the adjectives to describe people learnt in the first part of the lesson. Finally, students discuss the tips for introverts and think about some tips for extroverts. They also read three quotes and choose one which best sums up how they feel about being an introvert, an extrovert, or both.
