B1 / Intermediate60 minStandard LessonUnlimited Plan

INTERMEDIATE PHRASAL VERBS

In the warm-up activity, students discuss some questions about being a newbie. Then, they look at a list of spaces (e.g. meeting room, canteen, deck) and order them from the most to the least important in an office. They need to explain their choices. After that, students complete phrases using provided words (e.g. hold a meeting, grab a coffee). The phrases include intermediate phrasal verbs (e.g. keep up, chill out, go over). Students also need to match the phrases with their synonyms. Finally, students look at some statements about starting a new job and being a newbie in the office. They need to say whether they agree with them or not

VIDEO & SPEAKING

The second part of the lesson starts with the video. After watching it, students discuss some questions related to the LinkedIn office and the spaces provided there. After the discussion, students do a multiple choice task. They need to complete some phrases for showing someone a place. The phrases include some intermediate phrasal verbs (e.g. show around, move on, check out). Then, students look at an office map. The map presents different office spaces on four floors. With a partner, students take turns and give a short tour of the office to a new colleague. They need to use the phrases from the previous exercise. Finally, students imagine their dream office and complete its map using a template. Then, they work in pairs and give their partner a tour of the office. They also get a tour of their partner’s office. They need to ask a minimum of two questions about the office.

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.

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).
