Likes and dislikes (The first person)
In this beginner-level ESL lesson, we will focus on personal preferences and how to express them in the first person. Students will learn to articulate their likes and dislikes, as well as ask others about theirs, encouraging meaningful conversations.
Our lesson plan provides a clear boardwork example to guide educators in teaching the target language. It also includes several low-resource activities that encourage students to discuss their preferences and interview their peers. To wrap up the session and reinforce their understanding of the topic, a classroom game idea is included.
Use of the board
Presenting complex language on the board can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially for new teachers. That's why each plan includes helpful suggestions and notes on how to effectively present the target language of the lesson.
The TEFLHandbook library prioritises collaborative and interactive classroom activities that reduce the amount of paper and photocopying needed.
What do I like?
The majority of our ideas involve little to no preparation or photocopying. Teach your best class with little more than a whiteboard and some students.
Our approach will help you optimise your teaching time and minimise reliance on paper-based materials, allowing you to focus on leading engaging and interactive lessons with your students.
With just a whiteboard and a group of eager students, you can deliver an exceptional teaching experience that engages and inspires your learners.
Memory: Likes and dislikes
Games are a fantastic way to wrap up any successful class. Our lesson plans contain at least one idea for ready-to-play classroom games that reinforce the lesson's target language.
