A2 / Pre‐Intermediate45 minStandard LessonPrintable & Digital$12 Plan

VOCABULARY

The worksheet starts with a quick warm-up activity. Students get a few questions and have to choose correct verbs. The task includes the following pairs of verbs: carry/wear, leave/stay and bring/take. After checking the answers, students discuss these questions. Next, students learn vocabulary for things we carry in our bags or backpacks by completing different categories: accessories, cosmetics, electronic devices and other. Ask your students to think of two more words that they can add to each category. TIP: You could make students work in pairs to come up with some ideas together.

VIDEOS

Following the vocabulary tasks, students discuss two questions which serve as a lead-in to two videos featuring Angelina Jolie and Kaia Gerber. Then, they watch the videos and note down which things the ladies have in their bags. You could also ask one student to say what things Angelina Jolie has in her bag and another what Kaia Gerber has. In the second listening comprehension task, students watch the videos again and complete the sentences with one word each.

SPEAKING

Finally, students discuss a few questions concerning the things they carry in their bags and backpacks as well as their preference. The goal of the last speaking activity that we created is to make students practise the vocabulary they’ve learnt throughout this A2 video-based worksheet. We prepared 12 sentences that students need to complete with their own ideas. TIP: Tell your students that they don’t have to talk only about bags!

  4. I tried this lesson today with my shy A2 student. It was SO MUCH FUN! We are both Moms, so we had a few laughs about our big and endless mom bags after watching the video with Angelina. We didn’t even finish the whole lesson with all the talking and comparing. Her feedback was – It was fun, and I understood everything, and it felt like I know something. Keep up the amazing work!

  5. Hi there!
    These kinds of A2 worksheets are really helpful!

    I know it’s a little bit more difficult to find videos related to lower-level lessons, but the students like to see how native English speakers use the stuff taught in the lessons. Mainly short-time videos, like this one.
    I’d reccomend “youglish”, which I have used often.

    Thanks a lot and congrats on your great job!

Questions

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).
