The worksheet starts with a warm‐up activity. Students have to match halves to create phrases describing free time activities. The exercise includes basic expressions such as listen to music/podcast, spend time on social media, take classes, etc. After completing it, students discuss questions and say what they do in their free time using the phrases from the previous exercise.


Next, student read short texts where three people describe their perfect weekend, and they have to say whose weekend they like most and why. The texts are packed with phrasal verbs, so students have to match them to correct meanings. There are phrasal verbs such as work out, eat out, go away, etc. To practise them, students move to the next activity and have to respond to a few statements using the phrasal verbs they’ve learnt. To extend this task, you could ask students to work in pairs. One person comes up with a situation and the other responds to it using one of the  phrasal verbs. Finally, students discuss a few questions as well as describe their perfect weekend using at least four phrasal verbs from this lesson.

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) or GBP (British pound sterling). 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).
