Resources: Power Point, Feedback sheets (1 per person), You Tube video (for transitions - They have to sit by the time you stop it in new place, Link on Power Point is for one of my favourites by Stromae), Levels laminates (good to have a set to hand in room, helps them to peer-assess easily). Students circulate the classroom, quiz each other, then swap cards and go on to find another partner. Useful as a starter recap from previous lesson or as a plenary for lesson just taught.
Then the pair finds another couple and forms a quad. In this exercise, students "speed date" each other to practice role plays calling for "chunks" or phrases used for each situation.This type of approach to teaching is based on the lexical approach or the chunks of language we tend to use to speak about certain situations.It is often helpful to introduce new learning activities by talking about why you're including it in the course.Make sure you explain how the activities you've planned are linked with the course learning objectives.
