Not so common experiences

Level: Pre-Intermediate (A2) to Intermediate (B1)

Audio: Yes

Fun lesson plan opening question: Have you ever been to McDonald’s, sent an e-mail or used a mobile phone?

You probably have. But according to a recent survey, millions of Britons have never done several things that you’d consider normal.

In this fun lesson, your students will read about other people’s experiences, then talk about their own. This practical lesson will get your students using lots of useful language and all the essential skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.

Other levels

Although we’ve set this lesson as Pre-Intermediate, you could easily use it with other levels. You could make it more difficult by offering less support through the Pre-listening activities, or get them to listen to it completely and then answer the comprehension questions.

Listening

For students with listening difficulties, use our “stop-start” method. This involves playing small sections of the audio file for students to try to capture the meaning of.

Remember, as part of the Learn Hot English method, we recommend three rounds of listening / viewing:

1. Listen once without stopping for a general understanding (listening for gist).
2. Then, listen again to answer comprehension questions, this time pausing if/when necessary.
3. Finally, listen again but this time read the script at the same time.
