Today I am going to share a video based session I made on the topic of travelling. I used this with B1 level students. This lesson is a listening/ speaking session. Students will be asked to do a lot of group discussions and they will have to come up with a lot of vocabulary themselves. At the end of the lesson, students will also be asked to be a bit reflective and self evaluate their performance (in my lesson,I also encouraged them to come up with an action plan). This was a 90 minute session.
Task 1: Discussing the difference between travelling/ traveling
Task 2: Looking at pictures and naming the means of transport.
Task 3: Thinking about words related to travelling
Task 4: Mini presentation about how the student got to where the lesson is held (sts must use vocabulary covered so far).
Task 5: Dictogloss
Task 6: Watch a video and answer questions (answers follow the questions).
Task 7: Reflecting on how students did in today’s session. Creating an action plan for the next video-based session.
Listening task idea:
You can either ask students take notes and then show them the questions or give them the questions and ask them to take notes for the questions. I guess this depends on the level of the learners.
Vocabulary task idea:
You can give your students worksheets with vocabulary related to travelling or ask them to look for the vocabulary themselves. I chose the latter.
