Thanks to this lesson plan on FinTech, students will learn buzzwords from the financial technology industry. The worksheet focuses on online payment jargon and is suitable for IT and e-commerce professionals.
LEAD‐IN & VIDEO
First, students look at the list of words (bitcoin, blockchain, crowdfunding, FinTech, online banking) and have to say what they know about them. Next, they read a short text and complete gaps with the words from the previous exercise. Before watching a video about FinTech, students read some statistics and complete gaps with their own ideas. After that, they watch the video to check their answers. In the next listening comprehension activity, students have to watch the video again and find more information about a few other things (such as M-Pesa, Robo-advisors, Peer-to-peer lending platforms). Finally, students discuss a few questions connected with the video.
In the next part of this lesson plan on FinTech, students learn more buzzwords related to the topic. They get a list of terms and need to match them to correct meanings. Again, students have the possibility to discuss the words they’ve learnt and talk more about FinTech. To practise the vocabulary further and consolidate it in a more communicative way, students work in teams and play ‘Explain this!’ by creating short definitions of some FinTech terms. They play ten rounds and see who knows their FinTech buzzwords best!
