B2 / Upper Intermediate30 minCritical Reading ClubUnlimited Plan

This is a Critical Reading Club worksheet. With this format, students need to read an online article at home and do the exercises in the classroom. Learn more about how to use such worksheets and their benefits in our post.


The lesson starts with a discussion about doing an online job interview, in which students share their own experiences, talk about its advantages as well as possible problems. Then, they move on to a vocabulary task and try to join ten half phrases with their missing parts to create ten complete phrases related to doing an online job interview. The next step involves matching each of the phrases to one of ten pieces of advice from the article students read before the class. Finally, students once again engage in a discussion, saying which pieces of advice they consider especially useful and why. They also come up with their own tips on how to do an online job interview well.

    Thank you for you efforts) This could be a good back-up or speaking materials to include in class on having an interview, but unfortunately to my mind it doesn’t bring any lexical or grammatical value to the class

      The idea behind Critical Reading Club worksheets is that students read authentic texts before class and then discuss their content and share their thoughts in the classroom. If you’re not sure whether such worksheets can benefit your students, read more about this format here and we hope you give it a go!

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).
