1- Prepare for your next lesson
Hand out page 1 of this worksheet. If you are teaching online, you can use an online service such as
http://www.ilovepdf.com to split this pdf into individual pages. Tell the student(s) that in the next lesson they are
going to talk about their homes. Ask them to prepare for the lesson by reviewing key vocabulary online (see
website links included on page 1), which they might need to use. Encourage them, if possible, to use Expemo,
Linguahouse's online memorization platform which uses spaced repetition algorithms to minimize the time needed
to learn new words by heart. Basic instructions for students are included on page 1 of this worksheet.
2- Conversation questions
Select and ask the student(s) questions from the list and stimulate a discussion. Encourage use of the vocabulary
that the student(s) reviewed before the lesson. During the discussion, correct mistakes by paraphrasing the
students in natural English and provide the additional vocabulary that they need in order to express their ideas and
opinions.
