Lesson plans A set of lesson plans and worksheets for use in first lessons in business English. As you look at the lesson plan and worksheets, use the wish list grid to tick off the points on the ‘Wish list’ you think they achieve. Does the number of ticks really denote a good lesson? Further suggestions Depending on the materials used, the materials and lesson plan provided here seem to cover all the points down to number 21 (learn something about how to study English).This point could be added by providing students with a language reference section on numbers or tenses to check their answers against before going through it as a class.Tips on self-study (22) could be added simply by telling the students where these language reference sections came from and where they can buy the book.Homework (25) could be practice exercises from the same or a similar book.

Instant folklore - building a spoken story I first came upon this activity in a beginners Gaelic class, but it can be used at any level as the difficulty is set by the students' own knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. Get the class to sit or stand in a clear order -- eg in a circle or a line. Start the story off with a simple, short sentence. An example of how this might turn out (/ separates individual contributions):I am tired / because / I went to bed late / last night. / Now / I want / an ice-cream / and / a bath. This is quite effective because it forces the students to retain the English for later repetition (as opposed to translating to their native language). The first few students won't get the benefit of this the first time round. If a student can't remember what came next (this will probably happen several times in a game), let the person who originally said the next line repeat it for him.

Happy and you Know it - refresher I find that one of the most terrifying things is when you are completely done with the lesson and you still have 10 minutes to go, and reviewing the lesson would go over about as well as giving an inspirational talk on how marching on the Trail of Tears was great for the Native Americans quads, calves, and burning unwanted pounds... it wouldn't go well. So what I've found is, or remembered is the Happy and you Know it song... and it works great on young kids and self-conscious teen agers.You remember: If you happy and you know it clap your hands....blah blah. Well change it around. I've used: happy - pat your gutsad - cry boo hooscared - scream in terrortired - go to sleep (they go crazy when you fall asleep in mid-sentence)angry - growl out loudhungry - eat you handetc... you get the idea Good Luck Sean SeidellCurrently of Tainan, Taiwan
