B2 / Upper Intermediate30 minStandard LessonPremium Plan

SAMPLES AND WRITING

First, students read a short definition of an elevator pitch and try to answer two questions about the concept and situations, other than a job interview, when we might use it. Next, students get some sample elevator pitches. They need to read and complete them with missing prepositions.
Finally, students need to write their own job interview elevator pitches which answer the following questions: who they are, what they do, and what they want to do. Next, they exchange their elevator pitches in pairs and do peer correction.

Questions

Title separator

Is there a minimum subscription period if I choose a monthly subscription?

No, there’s no minimum required number of subscription months. You can cancel any time you want. Basically, you can sign up and then cancel your subscription the next day, which will mean you have access for 1 month and won’t be charged again.

What currencies can I pay in for my subscription?

Our default currency is USD (American dollar), but you can also pay in EUR (euro), GBP (British pound sterling) or PLN (Polish zloty). You can change the currency you want to pay in at the Pricing page before selecting a subscription plan.

How can I edit an e-lesson plan?

You can get your own editable copy of an e-lesson plan and make changes to it. To do so, either (1) make a copy of it on your Google Drive (preferable method) or (2) download it in a Powerpoint format (but formatting might be a bit off so we can’t guarantee that it will work well).
