This is week 3 of the Teacher Training Program. The purpose of these lessons and activities is to provide teachers with a few activities that can help their students learn English. These ESL writing activities can also be used as conversation activities.
This week we practiced describing things in detail.
Specifically, each student watched a video and then made a summary by talking about plot, characters, main events, the message and the story’s impact on the students.
The videos for these lessons are here:
Quick thinking. Faster speaking. ESL students will need these skills to watch and discuss the actions in this English video discussion and fluency lesson.
English Video Discussion Activity
Here is the video for this ESL speaking lesson.
I will try a new speaking activity for this video lesson.
- Watch the video as a class.
This ESL speaking activity uses a video to build conversation skills.
This pair work activity works like this.
- Before break, half the students go out. Partners stay in class and watch the video.
- Half the class watches the video. Their job is understanding. They will have to answer questions and make a summary.
