In this post, I would like to share a strategy which helps students tackle CAE Speaking part 2 task more effectively.
This lesson plan looks at the relationship between fashion and politics and engages students in the discussion about our perception of public figures based on their appearance. The lesson involves speaking practice, a vocabulary section, and comes with a fun video activity. It is suitable for levels B2 and up. It takes between 45 and 60 minutes to complete.
In this lesson students discuss the usefulness of various 2016 inventions. In the second stage of the lesson, students work with word formation exercises, modelled after Cambridge Advanced Use of English Part 3. The lesson is aimed at B2+ students, especially those who are planning to take the Cambridge Advanced exam. The class takes around 45 minutes to complete.
The aim of this activity is for the students to practice their listening and speaking skills. It is suitable for any level, groups of 2 and more students. It is best used to create interest in the lesson topic or to close the class.
