VOCABULARY & READING

The first activity in this travel worksheet is a brainstorming activity in which students discuss if and how travelling can change people. Then, they do a vocabulary task in which they need to move some words (e.g. abroad, foreign, imagination) from the wrong sentences to the correct ones. After that, students read the article about how travelling changes people. One person from a pair reads the first half of the article, and the other person reads the second half. Next, they share what they learned and discuss if they agree with the ideas mentioned in the article (e.g. travelling makes you trust people more, travelling makes you more creative).

VIDEO & SPEAKING

The second part of the worksheet begins with a video lead-in activity. Students look at a list of countries and cities and discuss if they have been to those places and what they know about them. Then, they watch the video in which people talk about the places they would like to visit, and put the places from the list in the order they hear them. Before the second viewing, students read five gapped sentences from the video and think what words might be missing. After that, they watch the video and check the words they came up with. The teacher could decide to just play the audio during this activity. Having watched the video, students discuss several questions referring to travelling, e.g. their travel experiences, different cultures, foreign languages. When speaking, they try to use the words from the lesson. The last part of this travel worksheet for pre-intermediate students includes a writing task. Students have to write an email to a friend describing their dream holiday. There are some questions to guide them.

    Nice lesson and nice video – it”s manageable.
    But not a lesson that can be done easily in just 60 minutes…The writing activity alone takes a quarter of that. Perhaps it’s more a 90 minute class.

      Thanks for your comment! We always gather feedback like that and then adapt the expected lesson time if we see that we miscalculated it.
