Valentine’s Day and Relationships – complete PowerPoint Lesson

Here’s the second edition of my complete lessons using only PowerPoint slides. Can’t be bothered to read the post? Get the lesson here

http://www.englishlanguagespacestation.com/powerpoint%20lessons/Relationships.pps

I think this lesson on relationships fits in really nicely with Valentine’s Day, especially since the audio features a lady dumping her boyfriend. It’s for pre-intermediate learners and should take about an hour. You only need the PowerPoint show above and working speakers to play the audio, students only need a pen and some paper.

Slide 2

Elicit different types of relationship from the class before you show the slide – mother, father etc. Now show the slide, students have to write their own explanation for each word.

Slide 3

Students match the phrasal verbs to the meaning.

Slide 4

Ask and annswer the pre-listening questions as a class before listening to the girl dumping her boyfriend. Students answer the gist question.

Slide 5

Now students listen again and answer the more detailed questions

Slide 6

Students ask and answer these questions in pairs or small groups. You can monitor and give feedback at the end.

Here’s the PowerPoint lesson again

Complete Lessons Using PowerPoint for ESOL /ESL/ IELTS – Part 1 – technology

Can’t be bothered to read the blog – get this lesson here http://www.englishlanguagespacestation.com/powerpoint%20lessons/Technology.pps

In the past I’ve blogged about how simple to use and effective PowerPoint is for teaching English. I’ve even devoted a whole section of my website to it. http://www.englishlanguagespacestation.com/complete_PowerPoint_Lessons.htm

If you have an interactive whiteboard or a projector and some speakers then you’re in luck. I’ve come up with a series of lessons that do not require any other material, no worksheets, CDs or books. The only material students need are paper, a pen or a pencil and their voices.

Teacher’s Notes.

This is a pre- intermediate lesson for ESOL / ESL. It takes about an hour.

http://www.englishlanguagespacestation.com/powerpoint%20lessons/Technology.pps

Slide 1 – introduction

Ask students ‘ What technogy have you used today?’

‘What technogy do you use everyday?’

Slide 2- Vocab builder

Ask students to write down the machines on the screen – they complete the table b writing the function of each piece of technogy. Monitor students while they do this offering help and suggestions. When they have finished, reveal the answers one by one. There are of course many answers to each one – mine are only suggestions.

Slide 3- Pre Listening

As soon as you get to this screen the audio will start. Click on it to stop it – you don’t need it right away.

Discuss the questions with the class eliciting answers.

Now ask the students to listen to the laptop repair man and answer the two questions. Play the audio and let students answer the questions.

Slide 4 – Listening for detail.

Again you’ll have to stop the  audio as it will start as soon as the screen comes up. As students to look at the questions and then prepare to listen again and answer them. Play the audio once more and then elicit the answers from the students, reavealing the answers as you go.

Slide 5 – Discussion

Tell students they are going to discuss some questions in pairs. Reveal the first question and allow students to chat together about the subject when it seems most groups have finished reveal the next, and so on. Each question should only take a couple of minutes.

While students are chatting listen to what they are saying and make notes on any general errors you hear them making.

Finally you could feedback the mistakes you hear the students making and/or you could pick up some of the interesting points students made by briefly discussing the questions as a class.
