English for Intermediate Level Students

Engaging Activities to Develop Conversations, Informal Language and Questioning Skills

Lesson 1 Follow-up Questions

This lesson, apart from the many questions, is based on one initial question. The subjects are simple to engage familiarity and confidence. After that question comes the hard part, how to keep it going?

Lesson 2 Informal Sayings

This lesson focuses on little and simple informal expressions to be used in formal language education. The informal words used within this lesson include colloquialisms, slang and euphemisms.

Lesson 3 Developing Conversations

This lesson encourages descriptions on a familiar topic. It also expands on the topic to ask for adjectives in the correct order.

Materials

There is a list of reference materials to be used with each lesson. Please note that both British and US spellings of words are given, for example, favourite/favorite.

Book Intro

This book comes with three lessons that cover English conversation and discussion for Intermediate levels. At this level students will have some confidence but will still have gaps in their vocab. At the same time will want pushing to improve their all round skills.

All lessons have been taught in South Korean schools with Elementary, Middle, High, Adults and academies (hagwons).

The lessons that follow can be adapted to run from 30 to 90 minutes. They often start with about 5-10 minutes of free talking. This can cover how the students are, what they have been doing or plan to do, as well as contributions from the teacher.

Lesson 1 Follow-up Questions
Lesson 2 Informal Sayings
Lesson 3 Developing Conversations

The structure of the lessons is modular, with clear and obvious steps to take. Everything starts with the teacher’s preparation work. Depending on the students’ ability, topics might need a quick worksheet or short classroom activity at the start of the lesson, and you will need to set aside time to devise this.
