A fantastic English lesson plan for you
Is the world about to end?
Level: Upper Intermediate (B2) to Advanced (C1)
Pandemics. Asteroid attacks. Famine. Nuclear disaster. People have been making predictions about the end of the world for centuries. Some have even given a precise date for the end. Luckily, none of these predictions have completely come true, but many have come close! In this lesson, students will look at a few of these predictions, and then discuss them.
Your students will really enjoy talking and reading about this topic. And this practical lesson will get them using lots of useful language and all the essential skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Click below for a PDF with the Teacher’s Notes, Resource Sheet and English Lesson Plan.

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:
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 again but this time read 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, or if they think the question is too “personal”. The questions are simply there to get students speaking. The actual information is secondary.
