VIDEO & DISCUSSION
At the beginning of the lesson, students discuss some data regarding the remote job market. They also talk about the term digital nomad and brainstorm the benefits of the digital nomad lifestyle. Then, students watch the first part of the video and need to answer three comprehension questions. While watching the second part of the video, students write down the benefits of the digital nomad lifestyle. After that, students talk about the ideas mentioned in the video. They also brainstorm the demerits of being a digital nomad.
MULTIWORD VERBS & ROLE PLAY
Students read a comment referring to the video and find synonyms for the phrasal verbs in context (e.g. knuckle down, slack off, piece together). They also need to do a gap filling activity in which they need to complete seven sentences with the correct forms of phrasal verbs from the text. After that, students discuss the idea from the comment they read. They decide which of the issues mentioned is the most serious, brainstorm other downsides of combining work and travelling, and say whether the digital nomad lifestyle is something they might enjoy. During this speaking activity, students need to use the multiword verbs from the lesson. Finally, students do a role play activity. One of the students in a pair is a project manager, and the other one is their boss. They need to discuss whether working from a different time zone would be possible for the project manager. Students do that using the provided prompts, as well as the advanced multiword verbs from the lesson. Before they start, they can take two to three minutes to plan how they will use the verbs in the conversation.
