Although we’ve set this lesson as Pre-Intermediate, you could easily use it with other levels.
You could make the lesson more difficult by offering less support through the Pre-listening activities. Conversely, you could make the lesson a little easier too. You can have your students to listen to the lesson completely and then answer the comprehension questions
For students who struggle with listening, use our “stop-start” method. This requires you to play small sections of the audio file for students to try to capture the meaning of the text.
Remember, as part of the Learn Hot English method, we recommend three rounds of listening and viewing:
- First, listen once without stopping for a general understanding (listening for gist).
- Then, listen again to answer comprehension questions, this time pausing if/when necessary.
- Finally, listen a final time, but this time reading the script at the same time.
Remind students that any discussion questions are simply a means to get them speaking.
Students are free to invent information if necessary if they think the question is too “personal”.
The questions are simply there to get students speaking. The actual information is secondary.
For lots more great material like this, we recommend The Pack for Teachers.
